DATE: 14 March 2020

VENUE: Founders Heritage Park




Held in New Zealand’s main hop growing region Nelson, at the top of the South Island. 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. 2018 was the biggest MarchFest yet, with a sell-out crowd of more than 4000 people enjoying the one-day event, all set in the beautiful, traffic-free environment of Founders Heritage Park.


Marchfest is the keynote event of Nelson Beer Week (NBW) now in its third year. Last year over 25 fun beer-related events were held across different venues, involving great beers from Kiwi breweries all over the country.
