Nelson has more craft breweries per head of population than anywhere else in the country. Marchfest comes together annually to celebrate these breweries and their craft beer.
There is also a fine lineup of ciders and wines, and food stalls offering all manner of deliciousness. Get wise with brew talks and demos, or treat yourself to the beer and food matching lunch.
There’ll be music throughout the day: MarchFest will be headlined by the hip-hop soul queen of New Zealand, Ladi6. Supporting Ladi6 will be festival favourites The Eastern, Welly ska band BattleSka Galactica, cool Nelson acts Not Bruce Willis, Django Schmango as well as Ragged Crow Morris and ukulele artist Russ from Alaska. For children, there’s a dedicated kidszone and lots of cool things to do.
EarlyBird tickets are available until the 18th of February for $32.00 - get in quick.
