On a Saturday in Summer each year, Market Place transforms into the best wine and food festival in the region. The combination of fine wines and delicious local salmon makes this festival unique in New Zealand.
Originally conceived to celebrate the area, the Twizel Salmon & Wine Festival has undergone a number of changes. Not only is this festival a chance to showcase local salmon, food and beverages, but it also shows off Twizel as a destination not to be left off the “to do list”.
2018 sees us celebrating our 13th Anniversary with the Festival going from strength to strength.
A great day out under the summer sun in Twizel. Don’t forget your sunhat and chair (sun screen is available at no charge onsite) to enjoy a relaxing family day out listening to great music and be entertained by our fun roaming busker or check out the Salmon Sizzle Cook Off Competition. This is where teams of up to four contestants battle to create the best salmon dish as chosen by our team of local expert chefs. Something for everyone with plenty of food and beverage stalls, face painting, bouncy castle, and the playground.
Family friendly, entrance fees have been kept to $15 per adult (includes a Festival glass or bottle of water), with children under 16 (accompanied by an adult) admitted at no charge.
