F.A.W.C! - Summer 2024

Welcome to Summer F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic! In its 12th year – and the first since being named a Great Wine Capital of the World – Hawke's Bay’s iconic foodie festival is set to deliver a spectacular line-up of culinary events.

This year’s programme is laden with superstars from Adelaide’s Callum Hann (Lou's Place and Eleven Restaurant) and Cuisine Magazine’s Chef of the Year Zennon Wiljens (Paris Butter) to local legends Casey McDonald (Craggy Range), Francky Godinho (St Georges), Christopher Stockdale (Wallingford) and many more.

Now a cornerstone of New Zealand’s foodie calendar, Summer F.A.W.C! 2024 will showcase more than 30 delicious events, with everything from the F.A.W.C! Grand Long Lunch in its spectacular secret location to intimate dining experiences and summer sundowners. Wine lovers will delight in the March timing, with the opportunity to take part in the season’s wine vintage with vertical wine tastings and vintage-inspired events aplenty. What’s more, to celebrate Hawke’s Bay’s inclusion into the Great Wine Capitals Global Network, F.A.W.C! is showcasing a different member capital each year, and this year F.A.W.C!ers can ‘travel’ to Adelaide, South Australia.

So, when you’ve got a reputation as New Zealand’s food and wine country, you need a culinary festival that delivers on that promise, and in 2024 F.A.W.C! does that and more.
