Under-age DrinkingThe caterer also has a licence to sell beer and wine but, if you want anything stronger, you’ll have to bring it with you. The nearest bottle store is in Wainuiomata, about 10 minutes drive away, and the nearest dairy and fish ‘n chip shop isn’t much closer.
We have had some issues with teens under 18 getting access to alcohol and causing problems – for themselves and for others. This is one of the reasons why anyone registering as a teen must nominate a “responsible adult” who will also be at the Festival and who the Committee can ask to sort out any problems.
Please make certain that you do not supply underaged kids with alcohol.
Anyone disrupting the Festival or causing problems will be required to leave. See the Site Rules page for more information.
