Along with mouthwatering food, award winning vineyards, beer and cider – we have lots of fun going on around the place – there are real kiwi competitions such as “Kina Sucking”, “Oyster Shucking and Eating” and of course “Pie Eating!” – we are in Pai-hia after all!!

There is a kids area – it’s fun! You have a bouncy castle, magican and face painter.

The Bay of Islands is a top holiday destination that has retained it’s small friendly feel – there is plenty to do around the town whether it be to take a boat trip to see the dolphins, have a swim, kayak, visit Waitangi or head into the bush. Or you can just sit in one of the many cafes and watch the world go by!  The festival is centre of town with great shopping, bars and cafes.  This is ‘it’ an event not to be missed!

Please note the festival is on the 7th October not Labour weekend .
