Plan Your Event
Nelson is a smart little city, its streets lined with world class restaurants doing justice to the outstanding local kai moana. What's more, our seaside towns and boutique villages offer award-winning wine, world famous beer and cider, fresh seafood and fruit, alongside art galleries and craft outlets.
From the unusually large range of boutique retail shops in central Nelson city to the charming cool store galleries of Mapua, the region is a degustation of gourmet and retail experiences.
In this extraordinary artisan capital, you go well beyond what you would normally expect to find in a provincial setting. Chocolatiers, craft beer brewers, cheese creators and award-winning boutique wine-makers provide gourmet inspiration for festivals or conference dinners styled in similar fashion.
