Summer F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic has drawn to a close for another fabulous year.

The sincerest of thanks to everyone who supported F.A.W.C! Be sure to keep an eye on our social channels for snaps from the events, and stay tuned for details of future events. Winter F.A.W.C! will be paused for 2024, after the summer festival was forced to move from November to March due a conflict with other regional events.

Dish of the Bay 2024

Dish of the Bay will take the reins from Winter F.A.W.C! this year with the month-long celebration giving foodies even more opportunity to devour delicious regional cuisine throughout June 2024.

After a brilliantly successful first outing in 2023, Dish of the Bay will see restaurants, cafes and bars serving a special signature dish throughout the month of June, allowing everyone to taste Hawke’s Bay produce, experiences and deals.
