Winter F.A.W.C! dates have been announced for June 2014 with tickets going on sale to the general public tomorrow , Wednesday 23rd at 12 noon.

This year’s Winter F.A.W.C! series is set to be bigger than last year and will run across four weekends in June. (Every Friday Sat, Sun, 6th-29th June)

Hawke’s Bay Tourism General Manager Annie Dundas said the organisation was looking forward to a successful second Winter F.A.W.C! series. “We are really excited to see Winter F.A.W.C! show such significant growth, nearly doubling in size from 2013. One of our key objectives is to increase visitor numbers in the off-seasons and believe Four Weekends of Winter F.A.W.C! offers many compelling reasons to visit Hawke’s Bay”.
