North West Festival

The North West Festival was kicked off in 2017 to promote our districts fantastic food and beverage industry.

It has grown in popularity and in 2020 was sold out with over 3500 people enjoying local food, wine and beer in the grounds of The Hunting Lodge on a stunning summers day.

Loop organised the festival’s drawcard performers; Gin Wigmore, Tami Neilson and Jed Parsons - artists who have all hit the New Zealand top 20 album charts this year.

In 2021 we introduced a 'Covid friendly' format with smaller events at local venues through the North West.

The executive committee will be considering options for our 2022 event during the middle of 2021.
