Discover why Wellington is called the culinary capital as chefs go next level with exclusive special menus from hundreds of participating restaurants, cafes, bars and food trucks. Book your table to avoid disappointment! 

    • Dine menus and festival dishes. Enjoy limited time set menus as grills and bistros go head to head with cafes and fine dining to offer the best Festival Dish main course, with the option to pair with a glass of wine, beer or perhaps a locally-inspired lighter beverage.
    • Garage Project presents Burger Wellington. With so many burgers to choose from (and many matched to Garage Project beers), it’s an impossible challenge to get through them all.
    • Cocktails. Start or finish off a night out with a special cocktail and matching tapas offer from our talented restaurants and bars.
