New festival to feature big line up of talent at Caroline Bay

A new one-day festival celebrating food, drink and music has been announced for Timaru's Caroline Bay in 2021.

The Feastival, to be held on March 13, is expected to include more than 40 food and beverage vendors, six hours of music, a children’s play area and a silent DJ, with a similar event being held in Hanmer Springs on March 27.
