It's that time of year again, where the Free Store festivities take centre stage!

We are putting on an extravaganza of beers, beats and wondrous treats.

There's so much happening at the Free Store Fest! Here's a taster of the main events:
- The best of Wellington’s local musicians playing throughout the afternoon and evening.
- Garage Project hitting us with a new 'Mishmash' - a special brew they make annually, supporting the Free Store Fest. This year with Best Ugly Bagels, they're creating a 'Cinnamon and Raisin Bagel Bock beer' mmm!
- Epic poems from Wellington Poetry champ Esme Oliver, and NZ Poetry winner Jordan Hamel.
- $20 haircuts from The Barter Barber, all proceeds going towards the Free Store.
- Hatha Yoga with local yogi Cat.
- Epic pub quiz, auctions & raffles with sweet prizes from our local sponsors.

All proceeds go to The Free Store: that funky little shipping container on Willis Street that redistributes $2.6 million worth of quality surplus food from 70 inner-city eateries to those in need each year.

So get yourself down to The Southern Cross, grab a pint or two of Mishmash and enjoy the festivities, all with the reassuring knowledge that your support is helping good people do good things.
