The Curious Food Festival

American Express Restaurant Month

With more than 12 city centre restaurants creating their most imaginative and delicious dishes alongside superb wine from Negociants & Church Road, sparkling goodness from S.Pellegrino and no fewer than seven craft breweries offering up intriguing brews for the day to quench your thirst and pique your curiosity. 

Be entertained by the antics and acrobatic skills of The Biggest Little Circus along with DJ Arii Jade - who has played at some of the coolest clubs and parties across New Zealand. This is an extraordinary event that you do not want to miss with inspired food creations, beverages and entertainment that will surprise and delight from start to the finish.

Entry is just $5 at the gate (with children under 12 free with a paying adult) but if you get there early, you could be one of the first 2,000 through the door and get in for FREE.

This is your opportunity to try it all, so bring an appetite for adventure and be prepared to taste one-off dishes from a selection of great restaurants from the heart of the city. From cracked coconut rice burgers to black banana dessert, this will be a day of intrigue, fun and delicious exploration.
