MarchFest is a unique craft beer and music festival, held in New Zealand’s sunniest city, Nelson, at the top of the South Island.

The Nelson region is New Zealand’s sole hop growing area – and has more craft breweries per head of the population than anywhere else in the country. 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.

Every year around 15 regional craft breweries sign up to produce a new beer for the event. These beers all make their world debut at Marchfest. Top of the South breweries include 8Wired, Dale's, Founders, Golden Bear, Hop Federation, Lighthouse, McCashins, Moa, Mussel Inn, Renaissance, Sprig and Fern, Totara, Townshends and more..

And unlike other beer festivals, MarchFest is not just about beer. It’s also about local wines, ciders and juices, regional cuisine (including a beer and food matching lunch) as well as its ‘event genre mash-up’ insistence on being a craft beer festival, an indie/world music gig, a hops showcase, an educational forum for home/wannabe brewers and a family-friendly day out. It’s hard to believe such a combination can work, but the thousands of people who attend each year are testimony that it does!

Music at MarchFest has always been eclectic and classy. Previous acts include international artists such as Alabama 3 (UK), John Cooper Clarke (UK), Ras Judah/ Daham (Botswana/Indonesia), Barons of Tang (OZ), Jali Buba Kuyateh (Malawi), Carmen Salvadore (Chile) The Ukes of Hazard (USA). Kiwi acts have included Don McGlashan, SJD, Iva Lamkum, The Eastern, The Drab Doo Riffs and Newtown Rocksteady.

MarchFest is also about creating an event where responsible drinking and good parenting go hand-in-hand. There will be heaps of cool stuff for kids to do.
