Can’t wait for the hot and heady days of summer? Lucky for us, Culley’s is bringing the heat and the beats back to you next year with their highly-anticipated meat fest. Yep, Auckland’s Smoke & Spice Festival will be bigger and better than ever with plenty of barbecues, booze, live music, demos and events on the agenda but this time spread over two days. Given 2021's event was postponed this is great news for the low and slow addicts.

The festival will run over three action-packed sessions from Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 September, 2022. Expect epic fire-cooked meats, whiskey masterclasses and a Bloody Mary station from Jack Daniels, sampling from Mitre 10’s top BBQ brands and even a craft beer fermentation station.

If you love cooking as much as eating, you can learn how to grill low ‘n’ slow or hot ‘n’ fast from smoked-meat guru Noel “BBQ Jesus” Hassapladakis. He's paired up with the Master of Butchery, better known as "The Tattooed Butcher" to deliver a 5-hour nose-to-tail masterclass.

All tickets will automatically be transferred from the old festival date to the respective new sessions. However If ticket holders can not make the new date you can request a refund via our ticketing partner, Eventfinda at support@eventfinda.co.nz by Monday 2nd May 2022. Please include your order ID when requesting your refund.
