The traditional Kiwi summer lifestyle, it’s a laid back mix of sunshine, tasty barbecues and nice cool brew with some great music to top it all off.

Blenheim Blues Brews and BBQs attracts many hundreds of visitors to Blenheim each year; it’s the South Island’s only Blues Brews and BBQs festival and one the province can be proud of. An annual event since 1994, it’s an integral part of Marlborough’s summer entertainment calendar. And with tickets now limited to 5,000 it is guaranteed to be a sell-out. There’s no better time or place to enjoy everything that makes summer special.
The festival is organised and run by volunteers from Blenheim Round Table community service club. All money raised from the Blenheim Blues Brews and BBQs is for local charities with the emphasis on youth activities. That’s a really positive way to wrap up a great day out.
