McCashin's Taste Nelson
7 March 2015 - 12-5pm
Taste Nelson is a festival that encapsulates everything that is fantastic about Nelson: food, wine, beer, seafood, fresh produce, culinary delights, arts, crafts and local performing talent.
The event is a combination of festival, fair and expo. The main focus is on locally produced boutique wines, craft beer, cider and other beverages and fresh food, but it also showcases Nelson’s arts and crafts, local performers and entertainers, and features a section dedicated to innovations from local Nelson businesses.
Taste Nelson takes place on 7 March, 2015 and is a family friendly event with a dedicated kids area.
Experience a taste of Nelson…in every sense of the word!
Nelson is well known for its skilled and innovative artisans, especially in pottery, glass making, bone carving, and jewellery. Local restaurants can tempt the most discerning palate with their superb seafood including: mussels, scallops, oysters, seasonal whitebait, geoduck and many fish varieties. And Nelson is now officially the Craft Brewing Capital of New Zealand, with twelve brands of beer as well as having almost as many wineries as Marlborough. The Taste Nelson festival is held each year to celebrate these delights.
