Hunter Valley Gin & Jazz Festival Returns

Calling all cool cats and juniper junkies. Or anyone looking for a relaxed day out in the Hunter (which is pretty much all of us, right?) The Hunter Valley Gin & Jazz Festival is back at Hope Estate!


The weekend of 10th & 11th September 2022 (rescheduled dates) will see the return of the smooth swinging sounds of an all-day live Jazz festival filling Hope Estate’s amphitheatre. The amphitheatre is Australia’s largest purpose-built outdoor winery concert venue, and the Gin & Jazz Festival will see the space surrounded by tasting tents serving Hope Distillery’s newest creations alongside the most popular drops from their current Gin range.

It’s a day out that’s full of fun and offers a range of packages to ensure everyone can enjoy the day in their own way.

Get into the groove and indulge with the ‘Ultimate Lunch’ featuring a 4-course menu complete with a beverage package overlooking the amphitheatre, so you don’t miss a moment of the action on-stage.

Learn more about your favourite drop at one of the Masterclasses, cool off with a Gin slushie. If Gin’s not your thing or you’re in the mood for a palate cleanser, drop by the Beer Cave for a tasting paddle.

Feel like something a bit more chill? Why not book a picnic hamper with a blanket or see how the mood takes you on the day and grab a bite from one of the food stalls on-site.

“We’re really excited to be bringing our Gin & Jazz Festival back in 2022,” said Michael Hope.

“After a great start to year one, we’ve made a few tweaks for this next Festival and we’re looking forward to making it better and better each and every year.”

So mark the calendar, book the babysitter (this is an 18+ event), dust off your dancing shoes and prepare to have your tastebuds tickled.
