Back for its 6th year of celebrating New Zealand Cider, 2021 brings with it a number of exciting changes. The festival will be staged in the beautiful Hawkes Bay region at Tomoana Showgrounds, Hastings. The NZ Cider Festival showcases the finest award-winning ciders in NZ, all in one place! In 2020 we welcomed over 3,000 Cider Lovers to the festival and we look forward to making this year even bigger and better!

Unlike ordinary beer festivals, all the beers available at Marchfest have been specially commissioned for the event and have never previously been tasted by the public. 2021 was the biggest Marchfest yet, with a sell-out crowd of more than 4000 people enjoying the one-day event, all set in the beautiful, traffic-free environment of Founders Heritage Park.
