Wairarapa Wines Harvest Festival 2018

FREE CSC Parking Available to Ticket Holders!

The festival will be held at the beautiful, sheltered riverside setting locally known as ‘The Cliffs' on the banks of the Ruamahunga River at the end of Dakins Road in rural Wairarapa (click here for map). Its remoteness and vineyard setting is part of its appeal while still being close to public transport.

Being 10 minutes from both Masterton and Carterton makes the site easily accessible to local and visitors to the district alike. A regional shuttle service will run to and from the festival site at the beginning and end of the day with an additional service meeting the scheduled Wellington train at the Carterton Railway Station.  Reservations are essential.

Once again there will be an emphasis on entertainment throughout the day featuring a variety of live music, art exhibitions and static displays ensuring that all tastes are catered for.

While of obvious interest to food and wine ‘buffs' it will also appeal to those from outside the area to use it as an excuse to have a day out in the Wairarapa region. Viewed in conjunction with other events running locally over the same weekend it will offer the perfect opportunity for visitors to experience some of the wide variety of entertainment that the region offers.


Tickets will go on sale to the public at 9am on Monday 27/11 at a price of $55pp or $50pp for groups of 10 or more.  Children under 14 years of age are FOC
