One of the events confirmed is the first ever South Island Cheese Festival being held on

delicious foods, Summer Dinner Cruises in the Marlborough Sounds, Winery Music Sessions , The Summer Vines Festival, Summer Dessert nights, Chef Masterclasses, Seafood extravaganzas, Vinyl in the Vines, Pop Ups, Produce Markets, Long lunches amongst the vines, Outdoor Curry Nights and many more….

Feast Marlborough Chair, Fiona Fenwick, said, “ We’re thrilled with the new events that have been created through ‘Summer Feast’. There’s going to be something for everyone - and lots to attract visitors from around New Zealand too”.

And it’s not too late to join in the fun! Feast Marlborough is calling on all venues and food and beverage related businesses to create unique offerings and collaborate with other

local suppliers to develop something that locals and visitors will not only support in numbers, but also receive such a great experience they will want to talk about!

The events can be big or small - but whatever they are, they will be included in the summer events calendar which will then be promoted by Marlborough District Council and Destination Marlborough as well as through Feast Marlborough.

‘Summer Feast’ is being run by the Feast Marlborough Charitable Trust with support from TEAM ( The Economic Action Marlborough group) and

Marlborough District Council.
