We are excited to bring the heart of the Festival into the newly opened Municipal Building within Toitoi Hawke’s Bay Arts and Event Centre. The central laneway, with bars and eateries in the surrounding spaces, will provide cool and funky places to meet with your friends after work or before and after a show. Enjoy fabulous food and drink from Craft and Social who will offer a special Festival menu. Or, if you want to grab a quick snack, Long Island Deli will have charcuterie and cheese platters that can be pre-ordered. Some of the finest beverages made right here in our region will be on offer through Cellar 495 and Cedric's Bar. We will serve wines from Tony Bish Wines, Alpha Domus, Decibel Wines and Sileni, as well as a selection of beautifully crafted beers from Brave Brewery.
With manākitanga at its heart, the Festival Hub is the place to be during the fortnight of the Festival, full of great ambiance and atmosphere, with a touch of glamour and straight up festival magic. We can’t wait to see you there!
