Eat Drink Play
And everyone’s invited

We’re dialling up the buzz with a city wide festival celebrating everything Wellington has to offer. From our local brews and culinary delights to amazingly talented performers, our vibrant nightlife and outstanding hotels. There are plenty of reasons to press play in the capital this autumn.

Many innovative venues will host a lively variety of local foods, beverages and experiences over 10 days and nights. Food and beverages are paired with entertainment. Think circus and cabaret, cocktail high tea, or perhaps opera on the menu. Could it be a bootleggers murder mystery or drag bingo is more you? 

Whatever takes your fancy make a Wellington weekend of it with the ultimate staycation offers.

With the lineup of live music, master classes, cocktails, wines and brews this festival is as unique as Wellington, and everyone’s invited to eat, drink and play!
