Saturday, Doors open at 12:00pm

A big new event is coming to Pauanui town, brought to you by Harcourts Pauanui…. the inaugural Pauanui Craft Beer and Gin Festival!!! Whangamata has Beach Hop, Whitianga has Scallop Festival, Tairua has the Wine and Food Festival and now it’s time to put Pauanui on the map with its very own large event!  

Set down for the afternoon of Saturday 25 September, the Pauanui Club is hosting the event with craft beer breweries, gin distilleries, a band and DJ, food trucks, a coffee cart and more, this is an event not to be missed and will bring people from all over!

An idea coming to life by Pauanui Club Manager, Gary Smith that he “knows will be well received and hopes that if this year is successful, it will grow each year and just get bigger and better!” When approaching the breweries and distilleries to pitch the idea, it was their passion for their craft and enthusiasm for the festival that has meant this inaugural event is now going to be larger than initially planned.

Sponsorship in small towns is always hard with the same businesses often being hounded to contribute, but Harcourts Pauanui were excited to be part of new and different event for the town and are hands on with the organising.

And just to top it all off a percentage of the proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to a national charity on the back of the Pauanui Sports and Recreation Club’s Corporate lunch – 23 October 2021 another event well worth checking out!
