“IT” Festival

“it!” Bay of Islands Food and Wine Festival

Village Green, 60 Marsden Rd, Paihia

Saturday 6th October 2018 11:00am – 6:00pm
This Boutique Food and Wine Festival is in its 9th year in the Bay of Islands. 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.

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.

Live Music on stage all day.  The stage 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 and entertainment provided to allow parents to sit back and enjoy the music and taste some of the exceptional food and beverages! Bouncy castles face painting and a magician.

A limited number of tickets will be available for this boutique festival.

The Bay of Islands is a top holiday destination that has retained its 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. Of course, you can just sit in one of the many cafes and watch the world go by!

Earlybird tickets available now – Limited amount. Under 5’s are free.

Sold out in previous years.
