Discover Pokolbin from End2End this Spring!

Who doesn’t love a food, wine and music festival, especially when it’s in the Hunter Valley! Now in its second year, the End2End Festival is a sensational festival created to showcase the Pokolbin area and all of its attractions. This year, the progressive event is being held on Saturday 14 September incorporating food, wine, music and more.

Festivalgoers will experience four amazing venues, with over 20 wineries, live music, gourmet food, bush tucker, celebrity chefs, Semillon and seafood, boutique beer, beef and big reds and so much more.

Hop on and off the End2End shuttle bus at any of the four venues throughout the day, relax with a glass of wine while listening to some tunes and indulging in fantastic food.

Mamamia Abba tribute band, U2 show Elevation, Live Baby Live INXS tribute band and the Ultimate Pink Show will all be performing at the End2End Festival in Pokolbin this September. These timeless classics will take you back in time while sipping on a glass of wine and sampling a range of gourmet foods.
