This is “it!!!” For the fourth year Paihia is holding the successful 'it' Bay of Islands Food and Wine Festival - "it" is 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. The main act this year is a kiwi favourite that will get you all up and dancing!
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!!
All day entertainment with well known NZ artists and icons.
Again this year in the competition tent there will be a chef demonstration by two local top chefs who will impart some of their culinary knowledge!
KIDS! This is a family friendly festival with a childrens area and entertainment provided to allow parents to sit back and enjoy the music and taste some of the exceptional food and beverages!
Right beside the festival we have Williams Rd with great shopping, bars and cafes. Limited number of tickets will be available - Tickets on sale 1st August 2013.
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! All happening on Saturday October 26th 2013.
Please note - no food or drinks or animals may be brought into the festival grounds
