Visa Wellington On a Plate's speedy development into New Zealand’s largest culinary festival has been largely due to the exceptional media coverage it receives. In just three years the festival has grown to feature over 100 eateries, 100 events and two iconic competitions - Wellington Bake Club (proudly sponsored by New World) and Burger Wellington.
Visa Wellington On a Plate, is set to serve its fourth course of good times and great deals from 10-26 August 2012 and we look forward to working with you on many more tasty stories. For those new to the festival, its centrepiece is DINE Wellington - a fortnight where more than 100 of the region's finest eateries offer lunchtime set menus and delectable dinner offers to tempt your taste buds and your wallet. This year will also see the return of the iconic ‘battle of the burger’, Burger Wellington, and an exciting range tasty events. Get ready to fill your plate with everything Wellington has to offer - and be sure to head back for seconds!
Visa Wellington On a Plate is organised by regional tourism organisation Positively Wellington Tourism and regional economic development agency Grow Wellington.
