Marchfest 2023 – It’s Getting Closer

Marchfest is a unique craft beer and music festival celebrating it’s 15th year. Held in Nelson, at the top of the South Island, and set in the beautiful, traffic-free environment of Founders Heritage Park, Marchfest will take place on Saturday, March 4th, 2023.

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 craft breweries produce a new beer for the event. These beers all make their world debut at Marchfest. Most are Top of the South breweries with a few invited guest brewers to round out the taste and style of beers available.

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, which sells out fast! 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 Marchfest is also a family-friendly day out. It’s a winning formula!
