Kaikoura Seafest

The 17th  annual Kaikoura Seafest, a food and wine festival that celebrates the ocean’s bounty and its importance to the region will be held on Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October at Takahanga Domain.

There will be an extensive array of fine foods, wines and beverages on offer over the weekend, most of it sourced from Kaikoura itself and the nearby Marlborough and Canterbury regions.

In previous years stalls have exhibited products such as locally brewed and vinted beer and wine, gourmet pies, mussels, paua, prawns, whitebait, scallop kebabs, emu, crayfish, cheeses and wildfood.

For those who like to get involved, the Teppanyaki Queens will be hosting cookery classes in the Cuisine Tent.

The party will kick off on the Friday night with live music at the Big Top Bash on the Friday evening. There will also be live entertainment on the Pirate Stage throughout the weekend.

This eagerly anticipated event is part of the larger Real New Zealand Festival which will showcase the best of New Zealand to kiwis and overseas visitors here for the Rugby World Cup.

It is sure to be popular so make sure you book well in advance. Tickets cost $35 each for adults and $15 each for children, aged five to 17 years. Tickets for the Big Top Bash – restricted to those aged 18 and over – cost $20 each. To buy tickets phone 03 319 5641.
