New Zealand Wine and Food Festival HCMC 2016

Foodies and wine lovers are in for a treat at one of Saigon’s top festivals on 12 March.

The New Zealand Wine and Food Festival HCMC 2016 takes place from 4pm to 10pm at RMIT University Lawn in District 7.

This year’s theme is ‘Eat – Drink – Give’: a nod to the work of youth charity KOTO and the Ba Chieu Home Girls.

The latter group, which helps homeless and disadvantaged girls, has a strong Kiwi connection since former New Zealand Consul General in HCMC, Celia Caughey, founded it in 1996.

Tickets cost VND2,000,000 and are available at the NZ Consulate, Caravelle Saigon, AIS Cherry Blossom in District 2 and Pitchers Sports and Grill in District 7.
