Nelson Wine & Food Festival celebrates sensational sounds, wine, food, and summer.

After close consultation with the NWFF committee, Richmond Rotary Board Members, our sponsors and partners, the Richmond Rotary Board have made the difficult decision to cancel the NWFF 2021 Event and reschedule for 19th -20th February 2022.

Given the economic downturn, it was clear to use that it was not economically feasible to host NWFF 2021 at the scale and standard to which we have built this event.  Although he decision to reschedule our event wasn’t taken lightly and the current concerns around health and economy of our community, might, in hindsight, appear overdone, we are partly inspired by the words of M Leavitt “Everything we do before a pandemic will seem alarmist. Everything we do afterwards will seem inadequate.

A big thank you to all our regular festival attendees, visitors, stallholders, sponsors and partners for their support and encouragement. As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when the community comes together and connects. For this reason, we fully intend to host NWFF in 2022 and look forward to presenting an amazing NWFF 2022 to our community.

Our team will be working with our members and partners to finalise the details for 2022 and will share more information with you as it comes to hand. If anyone would like to discuss sponsorship with us, please do not hesitate to make contact.

Please follow us on NWFF facebook page and the Richmond Rotary Facebook page.
Kind Regards

This annual event is coordinated by Rotarian's from the Rotary Club of Richmond. We are a service group who like to have fun and support our local community. We help build the cycle-paths, BBQ shelters at Rabbit Island and organise the Wine and Food Festival as well as many other things in our community.

It's all about local. During the last 10 years we have raised over $360,000.00 from the Wine and Food Festival. Proceeds are then donated to community groups like the Rescue Helicopter, Hospice, Womens Refuge, Coastguard, local Fire brigades as well as local sporting groups and schools. In 2018 our main recipient was The Nelson Hospice,  so come along and join us in 2020 and raise more money for the local community.

Nelson Wine & Food Festival celebrates sensational sounds, wine, food, and summer. Hold onto your holiday groove, grab a friend and head to the Nelson  Wine & Food Festival, for all-day entertainment, fantastic food, and award-winning wine and beer. For those partial to a glass of something classy in the sun, explore the best Nelson has to offer with our leading wineries, or sample a beer or cider from our stellar craft breweries. This is a family event and NWFF cater for children with non alcoholic drinks, face painting, bouncy castle and much more.

For the foodies, there will be gourmet food stalls to explore and Local Entertainment to get you on your feet and dance under the summer sun or chill out and relax.
