Cancellation: "Due to a number of contributing factors affecting the production of the Auckland Craft Beer & Food Festival, organisers have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event. The Black Rock Homebrew competition will also be cancelled. It has been a tough period for events and we wish to pass on our thanks to our sponsors, vendors and ticket purchasers who have supported the event.

Tickets purchased for this year's event will be automatically refunded via moshtix. Please allow up to 5 business days for refunds to be processed. The team are looking forward to seeing you all in 2024 and encourage you to continue to support the hard working craft beer and food industry".


The Auckland Craft Beer & Food Festival makes it’s triumphant return and will once again transform Spark Arena into New Zealand’s largest urban beer garden on March 18, 2023. 

Delivered by the team behind the iconic Dunedin Craft Beer & Food Festival (now in its 9th year) and led by brewery partners Behemoth and Emmerson’s, the event will bring together more than 40 breweries across Spark Arena’s indoor and outdoor areas alongside artisan food and beverage vendors and curated tasting room sessions.

Supported by Radio Hauraki, the day will also feature a bumper line-up of musical luminaries Che Fu & The Kratez, Sola Rosa, Lou’Ana and Nice’n’Urlich with more exciting acts to be announced.
