F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic has new dates but the same plan – to celebrate 10 years of the Hawke’s Bay’s signature culinary festival with incredible wine, fantastic entertainment and some of the best chefs Hawke’s Bay and New Zealand can serve up.
While Covid-19 forced the festival to postpone to our new dates of January 28 – February 6, there are a few events that will run in November, others that have postponed until Winter F.A.W.C! 2022 and four that unfortunately, have had to cancel outright. We know, it’s a little confusing . . . but we wanted to let everything run and give you the chance to enjoy as much of Food and Wine Country as possible – whether that’s in November, January or during Winter ’22.
