Coastal Classic Race, Auckland to Bay of Islands


Featuring Top Kiwi Musicians – Avalanche City, Tiki Taane, 5k and more.

This Boutique Food and Wine Festival is in its 8th 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 mouth-watering 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 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 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!

Under 5’s are free.

Sold out in previous years.
