The finest food and brews from Otago and New Zealand will again be featured at the annual Dunedin Craft Beer and Food Festival this October 4. The specialised events team from the Otago University Students’ Association will build on the success of last year’s event which saw 3,500 attendees. The focus will be to further improve the overall quality and experience of the day.

“We had excellent feedback last year and we’ve all been working away at new ideas to make the day even better.” said Darel Hall, OUSA General Manager.

“Our team has created a new layout with more space with extra seating including use of the grassed area for families and picnic style seating”, he said.

“In addition, to make it easier for both the event goers and the stall holders, we will have an electronic wristband purchasing system which will mean quicker transactions and minimal queuing”, he said.

The Forsyth Barr Stadium will be the event’s home again, allowing the Festival to move further onto the pitch to create more room that can be used rain or shine and warm either way.

Families remain a focus of the festival with improved kid’s entertainment, and the event will remain free for those aged 14 and under with adults; “The OUSA wants the Festival to be a town/ gown city and student event that is high quality and therefore family friendly, allowing people from all ages to
come together for a family day out.” said Hall.

“Our feedback is that there is enthusiasm for more food matching and an emphasis on food provenance. This ties in with issues of sustainability that are increasingly important to students and the wider public, said Hall

“This is about building on the success of a popular Dunedin event showcasing great food and great beers and encouraging life-long and temporary Dunedinites to support local businesses that we want to hear more from” said Hall. “Our goal is an iconic event that all Dunedin supports”.

“We’re all looking forward to seeing the sun shine through the stadium’s roof warming us all up as we cool down with a nice Pale Ale and get to taste food from across the region.”

Early bird tickets will be on sale from July 1, 2014.

The Dunedin Craft Beer and Food Festival team are taking applications of interest from breweries, and food vendors who think their products would be suitable for the festival.
