Festival Currency


Downtown Food & Wine Fest IS GOING TICKETLESS with a new Cashless system!


For the first time ever, our event will NOT be using food and  beverage tickets. Instead we are using a digital cashless system, using RFID payment for all transactions on site! Receive your wristband on arrival at the festival, and head straight to the top up station to get going.




Downtown Food & Wine Fest will operate a digital currency for the 2020 event to ensure speed of service, increased security, and ease of transactions at the many bars, food outlets, and vendor stalls. Most importantly, there will be reduced need to wait in lines, and no need to count out coins for beer as your friends get thirsty for your round!

When you arrive at the festival, your ticket will be swapped for a wristband which must remain on your wrist for the duration of the event. This wristband will act as your 'digital wallet' within the event site, as well as your ticket for remaining event days. You must not remove the wristband or your ticket will become void.

After entering the festival, you will be able to load currency onto your wristband using either cash, debit, or credit card at one of our top-up tents, self serve top-up kiosks. A one-time activation fee of $1 will be charged to you the first time you add funds to your wristband.

All food drinks purchased at the event will need to be paid for using the simple tap-and-go wristbands.


Can I use cash to pay for food and drinks if they haven't uploaded anything to my wristband?


Downtown Food & Wine Fest is a cashless festival. In other words, to buy food or drinks at the event you will need to use funds that have been loaded to your tap-and-go wristband. Cash WILL NOT be accepted by any bars or restaurant vendors at the event.


What is a 'cashless festival'? How does it work at the event?

When you arrive at the event, your ticket will be scanned and swapped for a wristband at the front gate. This wristband needs to remain on your wrist for the duration of the event.

Once inside the event, you will be able to load funds onto your wristband using exact cash or credit/debit card. Look out for one of our top-up tents or friendly top-up staff who can help you do this.

Once you have loaded funds onto your wristband you can visit any of the restaurant or drink vendors on-site. Let them know what you would like to purchase and they will scan your wristband in order to deduct the correct amount - and then it’s time to enjoy your purchase!


How much should I load onto my wristband?

We would recommend loading a minimum of $50.00 to your wristband at initial top-up in order to maximize your experience at the event.


How do I know how much I have left on my wristband?

You can simply ask any vendor or top-up staff member to scan your wristband to see how much credit you have remaining. After each transaction, the vendor will also show you the balance you have remaining.


Is there a cost to me?

In order to make use of the awesome benefits that cashless provides (mainly shorter wait times at the bar for you!), a one-time activation fee of $1.00 will be deducted from your initial top-up.

So if you add $100 to your wristband the first time you top-up, you’ll have $99.00 left to spend. Each consecutive time you add funds to your wristband, 100% of the funds you add will be yours to spend at the bar!



What if I don't spend everything on my wristband? Can I get a refund on what's left over?

No, we will be unable to process any refunds after the event.
