Visa Wellington On a Plate is back 11-27 August 2017

It’s not just one day. It’s not just one location. It’s a region-wide culinary takeover.

Wellington warms up in Winter with 17 days of food related fun as Visa WOAP (we pronounce it woah-app) takes over 11-27 August. Wellington’s restaurants, venues, laneways and carparks are host to wild celebrations of food and beverage through exclusive set menus, burgers, cocktails, unforgettable events and pop ups.
