Orton Bradley Park

Located just 25km from central Christchurch, Orton Bradley Park is a private, 650ha rural property situated on the southern shores of Lyttelton Harbour. With its large open spaces and park like setting, it’s the perfect location in which to showcase Banks Peninsula at its finest.


Wow, what a great range of offerings we have lined up for the Banks Peninsula Festival 2020, with over 70 stallholders selling their food, beverages, arts, crafts and produce on the day.
Applications to host a stall are now closed, and a big shout out to all those joining us.
We can’t wait to meet you all and join together on this festive occasion.

Mystery Box Cook Off & Demonstrations

Celebrity chef Simon Gault gave Banks Peninsula hospitality a big thumbs up when he visited earlier in 2019, and is stoked to be joining us at the festival to judge the Mystery Box Cook Off.

Three Peninsula chefs/home cooks have bravely put their hands up to compete in this competition that will see them create a plate using local produce from the region’s waters and land – with a few extra condiments and surprises in the mix!
Simon will also put his own culinary skills on show, and don’t miss his talk about where his career as a chef has taken him.
There’ll also be a variety of demonstrations being held throughout the day - timetable for these will be released here in early January and on Facebook and Instagram.

Getting There

Orton Bradley Park, home to the Banks Peninsula Festival, is a 30-minute drive from Christchurch.
