The "Sunshine Capital" of New Zealand is situated on the Wairau Plain near the top of the South Island. Blenheim's combination of high sunshine hours, a long ripening period, and free-draining river flats have put the district's vineyards at the forefront of the International Wine Industry. Seymour Square and Pollard Park are two of the town's main attractions for walks and general tourism. The first weekend in February sees the festival "Blues, Brews and BBQ's", which comprises Blues and Jazz music, food and a variety of Beer and wine. It starts at 12pm and ends at 7pm, and its located at the A and P park near Redwoodtown. This is also followed the next weekend by the Wine & Food Festival, which brings all the regions great produce into one place.
