Event Details

The 2020 festival is being held at the rowing complex on stunning Lake Ruataniwha, giving patrons a world-class view while they enjoy their family day in the Twizel sun. Free shuttles will run to and from Twizel’s Market Place all day long, and a bus will run from Wanaka (ph 021 668 113) and Oamaru (ph 03 443 9120) return for only $15 to make sure everyone can tick the Twizel Salmon & Wine Festival off their to-do list.

From lively bands and roaming buskers to a bouncy castle and face painting for the kids, there’s always something to entertain everyone at the Twizel Salmon & Wine Festival. Don’t forget to bring along your sunhat and chair (sunscreen is available free of charge on site) to enjoy a relaxing family day out listening to great music, eating delicious food, and drinking fine beer and wine. Even better – this year there will be plenty of space for patrons to bring their own shade cover.

Buy your ticket early online for $20 and go in the draw to win either a scenic flight for two with Mt Cook Helicopter Line or a skydive package with Skydive Mt Cook. Pre-sale tickets are also available from the Twizel Information Centre. Gates sales will be available on the day for $25. Both ticket prices include the free festival shuttle throughout the day to and from Twizel Market Place. Children under 16 enter for free when accompanied by an adult.
