January is all about family and fun and chill time and … festival! There’s no better start to the year than heading off to New Wine for 5 fun filled days to celebrate this wild Christian life.
The youth will party, the kids will play, the adults will relax but whatever your age we’ll be worshipping, learning and connecting with God again.
Like every good party everyone’s invited.

Join us at New Wine. An all age festival where many voices worship the One.

Want some down time outside of the programme? Enjoy a host of enticing offerings including fun all ages activities each afternoon, chilling on site, swimming in the pool, sports afternoons, local playgrounds, and the stunning Wairarapa region.

Want that stellar community feel, but bolstered with life’s little luxuries like actual walls and nearby toilets? We’ve got the dorm for you! 


Its located a short 5 minute walk to the school but, far enough away from the excitement to get some good shut eye! Let us know who you want to bunk with when you register – it’s first in first served, so don’t dilly dally folks!

Pricing is $50 per night. If you’re a really littlie with travel cot and don’t need a bed…. well honey, you’re free!

Poto House is in discussion but currently not available to be booked.

Create your own campsite – pitch your tent, park your van, pamper your glampsite. Your festival campsite is included free in your registration. It’s such an awesome opportunity to connect with each other in a super relaxed kiwi kind-of-way. So good for families, youth groups and church whānau. And of course this year we’ll bask in Wairarapa’s incredible weather!

Of course New Wine has always allowed you to blaze your own accommodation trail. There are plenty of accommodation options available, including airbnb and bookabach. But book early!


The dorm hostel accommodation should not be confused with hotel accommodation.  The cubicles are single beds only. Dorm accommodation means a mattress, bottom sheet, so bring all bedding, pillows, towels and toiletries. New Wine will endeavour to take all accommodation needs into account when allocating dorms, but cannot guarantee to meet all requests.
The New Wine camp site is conveniently located on the Wairarapa College sports fields. The college has a strict no wheels on fields policy, but the camping villages are allowed wheels with the proviso that they stay put all festival.

Check out the FAQs for the deets on all the discounts and saving options available.


Getting to New Wine can be financially difficult for some. Christians have a hallmark of sharing each other’s burdens. We have created the GRACE BOX as a means of sharing that hallmark of generosity.

If you would like to add money into the Grace Box include it in your registration (a donation receipt will be issued at financial year end).

If you require financial assistance register for the festival and, complete an online Subsidy Application Form or call the New Wine office on 0800 639 9463.

Why not start paying by instalments to help towards your festival costs? If you start your payments before 30 November then we’ll hold the early bird prices for you until the festival!
Email us here to get set up with manageable weekly or monthly payments.

New Wine Festival is a 5 day all-age celebration; people from all across Aotearoa gather together in the presence of God and engage in worship, teaching and ministry within age specific programmes.

The rhythm is morning and evening programmes surrounded by all sorts of family-friendly fun; from silent disco’s to wine tasting, worskshops to free time in the pool!

Whether camping, bunking in dorms, staying offsight, or visiting just for the day there are excellent facilities (no portaloos in sight), renowned speakers, and a wonderful community to enrich your summer and start your year right!
