F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic is a series of out-of-the-box food and wine experiences set in stunning locations throughout Hawke’s Bay.
With 80 delicious events over 10 glorious Hawke’s Bay days, there’s something for every food and wine lover.
This year it is F.A.W.C!’s fifth birthday and we’re pouring the bubbles in celebration. It seems like a long time ago we decided to dip our toes into the unknown and start a food and wine festival with a twist. We knew the Hawke’s Bay region had a global reputation for the quality of not only its wine but also in the incredible food grown in our midst. But what would make F.A.W.C! different? We didn’t want to be ‘JAFF’ (Just Another Food Festival)- we wanted a point of difference.
F.A.W.C! is about catching up with friends, making new ones and just having a good time while enjoying exceptional cuisine served up by an outstanding array of talent. The event has grown quite considerably since our first year, with eighty events on this year’s summer programme. F.A.W.C!ers come from far and wide to taste and share in the region’s bounty and we look forward to welcoming each and every one!
Go forth and lick those plates clean.
