Visa Wellington on a Plate 2023

Get ready for the tastiest months of the year as Wellington serves up a refreshed food festival

Visa Wellington On a Plate has been serving delicious delights for 15 years, and for the first time in 2023, they're dishing it up in two courses across the year.

The festival's first edition will kick off in May with a curated programme of unmissable festival events, unique pop-up restaurants, chef collaborations from near and far, delectable dishes, and crazy cocktails. August will bring back everyone's favourites: burgers and Beervana.

2023's festival lineup is full of foodie fun. Hungry event-goers can take their pick from more than 100 festival events and pop-ups, 70+ Dine Wellington dishes, and 70+ Cocktail Wellington creations.

This year's extensive programme has a range of options to suit all budgets, palates, and appetites. Marvel at some of the world's best culinary talent at the Chef Collaboration Series presented by Singapore Airlines, or school up at locally focused events with a side of history and culture.

2023 is also the year of crossover events, with Visa WOAP partnering with the likes of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival, New Zealand Music Month, and international embassies. Bookworms will be satiated at Eat Your Words presented by Kenwood, a new flagship event for the festival, with talks by authors, influencers, and food and drink travel writers.

The Visa Wellington On a Plate programme is live now, so round up your mates and clear your calendar for a month of feasting, fun, and food. Public tickets to festival events are on sale from 23 March 2023.
