This could well be the Southern Hemisphere if not the world’s smallest beer festival, but we don’t really have the time to do the due diligence so we’re calling it The Smallest Beer Festival, Carterton. Potentially a wee ripper of a festival featuring breweries, cideries, live music and food trucks.

Carterton is the centre of the universe as far as the Wairarapa is concerned, a traditional farming community now also home to authors illustrators and painters, The Smallest Beer Festival compliments this unique blend of culture, heritage and taste making.

Bringing their own blend of Good-Time Americana to Carterton, T-Bone will warm your heart and get your toes tapping.  Featuring a line-up of über talented musicians playing fiddles, mandolins, guitars & banjo, and a repertoire that ranges from zydeco to old-time, blues to originals. These lads will dazzle you with a powerhouse of harmonies, world-class musicianship and a guaranteed good-time!
