Harvest Festival 2023

17 & 18 February 2023

Book your transport to and from the Wairarapa Wines Harvest Festival here

The festival will be held at the beautiful, sheltered riverside setting locally known as ‘The Cliffs' on the banks of the Ruamahunga River at the end of Dakins Road in rural Wairarapa. Its remoteness and vineyard setting is part of its appeal while still being close to public transport.

Tranzit's regional shuttle service will run to and from the festival site at the beginning and end of the day. There is also a direct Wellington to Harvest transport option.

Reservations are essential. Book now so you don't miss out.

Once again there will be an emphasis on entertainment throughout the day featuring a variety of live music, art exhibitions and static displays ensuring that all tastes are catered for.

While of obvious interest to food and wine ‘buffs' it will also appeal to those from outside the area to use it as an excuse to have a day out in the Wairarapa region. Viewed in conjunction with other events running locally over the same weekend it will offer the perfect opportunity for visitors to experience some of the wide variety of entertainment that the region offers.
