Welcome to the third annual Dunedin Craft Beer & Food Festival!

This festival is our way of celebrating everything that is tasty about Aotearoa, and on November 7th it will be the BEST place to try the finest kiwi food and the most diverse range of craft beer, wines, and cider from both Kiwi makers and those further afield. This year we have been truly spoiled for choice: we guarantee that 2015 will have a wider range of the best food, and the absolute best mix of breweries from start-up to megastar – from Birch Street to Bavaria, we’ll have the freshest and finest craft beer Dunedin will see in 2015.

Bring your family, find your old friends, and come along to the legendary weather-proof Forsyth Barr Stadium to try something new! Space is the key, and this year we’re taking over the entirety of the Forsyth Barr Stadium’s sports pitch to make more room for you to spread out and relax whilst taking in all that scrumptious food and drink. We’ll be kicking off from noon and everything is wrapped up at 7pm.

What’s new and noteworthy in 2015?

Upon arrival at the festival you’ll get an easy to use electronic wristband that’ll make paying and topping up quicker and easier. You can top up with either cash or eftpos and all it takes to transfer credit on or off your wristband is you holding out your hand under the machine, easy as.Read more!

More space to relax!

This year we’ve gone all out and will be taking over the entire field! We’re planning on bringing in a bigger range of seating options, from beanbags to bar-leaners, to good old picnic blankets – when you’re feeling a bit weary, there should be somewhere comfy for you to park up for a while and drink in the ambiance.

Last year we introduced a kids zone to the festival and it really brightened our day to see so many happy face-painted nippers running about the place – consequently, this year we are making the kids zone even bigger than last year with more activities for the young’uns, and more room for caregivers to chill.

This year we are super stoked to have The Black Seeds bringing their signature sound to the festival! They’ll be supported by a solid line-up of local talent, guaranteed to keep your toes tapping and a smile on your face.Read more!
