This is “it!!” - the event not to be missed - Love it! Cook it! Drink it! Bite it! Sing it! A successful recipe of fantastic food, wine, entertainment and friendly locals all mixed up together in the Bay of Islands.

There is all day entertainment with awesome bands and the headline act is White Chapel Jak!

Along with mouth-watering food, award winning vineyards, beer, and cider - we have lots of fun! There are real kiwi competitions such as “Kina Sucking”, “Oyster Shucking and Eating” and “Pie Eating” - we are in Pai-hia after all.

Live music on stage all day which can be seen from all over the festival - it is a great friendly festival where you are never far from the action.

Kids. This is a family friendly festival with a children's area where you will find Mike the Magician, Polly Pockets giant bubbles and face painting. Under 5's are free.

The Bay of Islands is a top holiday destination that has retained its small friendly feel – a great base for so many different activities whether it be a hole in the rock cruise, parasail, lie on the beach, have a swim, kayak, cycle the Twin Coast Cycle Trail or the Waitangi Mountain Bike, fish, sail, visit the Birthplace of our nation at Waitangi Treaty Grounds, or walk one of the many spectacular tracks. Of course, you can just sit in one of the many cafes or restaurants and enjoy the view!

Please note:
You cannot bring food, alcohol or any other drinks into the festival. No animals allowed.
