"it" Bay of Islands Food & Wine Festival
Paihia, 20th October 2012
This is “it!” For the third year Paihia is holding the succesful '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. Set on the Paihia Village Green in the heart of Paihia which is under a minutes walk to the waterfront.
Delicious mouth-watering food... whitebait fritters, mussels, lamb, beef, asian flavours, oysters, delectable desserts, fudge, seafood and many other tantalising delights! Offering a large range of Northlands award winning and boutique vineyards plus beer and cider.
Real kiwi competitions keeping us all entertained as a spectator or a competitor - “Kina Sucking”, “Oyster Shucking and Eating” and of course "Pie Eating!"
What about the 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. So we have a magician, fairies and bouncy castles. Kids under 5 are free.
Paihia is an incredible destination at any time of the year but the weekend of 20th October will be the best to experience what Paihia is truly all about. Accommodation is available over these dates but you better be quick – check out Mainstay Paihia Hotels
