Smales Farm is an innovative next generation neighborhood on Auckland’s North Shore located at 74 Taharoto road Takapuna.
Situated on the Takapuna fringe, Smales Farm is the ideal venue for an event of this nature with its expansive green spaces, purpose-built amenities, transport options and its central shore position. Smales Farm will have a Liquor ban in place on the day of the event for all areas within the venue that fall outside of the Takapuna Food, Wine and Music Festival’s event site. Anyone caught drinking in the carparks or other areas of the farm will be denied entry to the Festival and asked to leave the premises.

Highlife Entertainment and Smales Farm have a zero-tolerance policy for intoxication and people that are heavily under the influence of alcohol. We do our best to maintain a safe and enjoyable environment at this Festival in effort to ensure everyone has a great time and we meet the conditions of our Liquor license. Go easy on your pre-drinks because if you arrive intoxicated or considerably under the influence upon arrival we won’t be able to grant you entry. Those inside the Festival that have had a bit too much to drink will be respectfully pulled aside by our friendly staff and taken to our special customer care area where they can sharpen up again before a possible re-entry or safe departure home.
