Save the date on Sunday, October 7th for Matakana’s Oyster and Wine Festival.
It’s no secret that oysters and wine are our two favourite summer treats, so what better place to enjoy it than a region famous for the production of both. Happening at Matakana Country Park the festival is set to make a day of it with plenty of entertainment such as live music, cooking demos, and shucking competitions. Don’t worry; kids are also welcome with face painting and crafts to keep them busy.
Whether you’re an oyster lover or not, the day will provide an all-weather celebration of local food, wine, and delights. Be sure to book your tickets and join the celebration of Matakana as the region where Kiwi oyster farming was born. You can even enjoy a glass of wine or three with return trips running to Auckland via the special event Mahu Express.
