MARCHFEST 2018

The Nelson-Tasman region is New Zealand’s sole hop growing area – and has always been in the vanguard of the emerging NZ craft beer renaissance. Unlike ordinary beer festivals, all the beers available at MarchFest have been specially commissioned for the event and have never previously been tasted by the public. 

MarchFest is not just about NZ craft beer, great live music is a big feature of the event. It’s also about delicious food, local wine and ciders, brewing demonstrations, a food and beer matching lunch, children’s entertainment and more…
