Welcome
WELCOME
Visa Wellington On a Plate (Visa WOAP!) celebrates our community,
our appetite for life and our hunger for adventure. We challenge the
status quo and dream up the next big thing in the culinary scene.
We’re thrilled to invite you to experience the new and bold firsthand,
in our own backyard, during Visa WOAP! and beyond. With 17 days of
127 Festival Events and a mouth-watering array of menus, burgers and
cocktails, taste the creativity and ingenuity that flavours Wellington.
Have you noticed? That new logo? Those new colours? Visa WOAP! has
had a bit of a makeover, and the changes don’t stop there.
We’ve spiced up Dine Wellington and invited restaurants and cafés to
create a “Festival Dish” inspired by the theme “An Element of Surprise.”
Be inspired yourself to try something new, somewhere new. There is
more than ever this year.
For the first time ever, the Wellington region’s famous food trucks are
taking part in Garage Project presents Burger Wellington. There are a
record-breaking 116 burgers to devour this year, more than ever. Plus,
the talented team at Garage Project have brewed up three new Festival
beers – Lola, Persephone, and Hakituri.
The Festival Events programme is designed to provoke and inspire and
this year will not disappoint. Some old favourites are back but the new
events just keep innovating.
You’ll be further surprised with tastes, experiences and moments that
are not the usual. This year’s pop ups run the gamut from hawker-style
delights, morning pastries, an American-style canteen, salty goodness,
and an artist who carves, moulds and shapes jelly into everything but
jelly. Plus, don't miss trying one of the delicious Cocktail Wellington,
brought to you by Spirits New Zealand, offerings. We are spoilt for
choice.
The new and exciting doesn’t stop there. We’ve saved you a spot at the
table, so pull up a chair and dig in at VisaWOAP.com.
Eat, drink and be Welly!

FRONT COVER:
AN ELEMENT OF SURPRISE
It’s time for a radical new shift! We kick-off 2016 with a
new look and a new treatment for our name – say it with
us: “Visa WOAP!” [whoa-app]. It’s bold, refreshing and just
a bit cute. We’re challenging you to Eat, Drink & Be Welly
and this year’s Programme Guide cover reflects just that.
Styled and shot by the creative minds at the Assignment
Group, Jeff McEwan from Capture Studios and stylist
Yvette Edwards, “An Element of Surprise” takes you to
another world, and for 17 days, that’s our plan. We’re going
to surprise you with tastes, experiences and moments that
are not the usual. Come along for the ride! Come eat, come
drink, come early… stay late. See you on the other side!
