If you love oysters and being outdoors listening to live music and just, well… chillin with friends and family – then this event is for you!
The only thing that could be better eating than fresh, juicy and plump oysters is having them on Waiheke Island!
Come along to the world-famous Te Matuku Oyster Festival at midday on
Saturday 15 October [NOTICE date changed to Saturday November 5th 2016 – ignore the date on the poster!!] to experience the most delicious oysters in the country, and have a great day out.
Fresh as you can get
Te Matuku’s Pacific oysters, highly prized by oyster lovers from all over New Zealand, are farmed in the crystal clear waters of the marine reserve at Te Matuku Bay on Waiheke. They’ll be shucked at the festival, ready for cooking in a variety of ways, or just au naturel: you won’t get any fresher than that!
Celebrity chef demonstrations
Join celebrity chefs Martin Bosley, Julie Biuso and Paulie Hooton for cooking demos and the chance to come up with your own Te Matuku “master chef” recipe.
Waiheke is the Island of Wine and you won’t be disappointed with Passage Sauvignon Blanc on or Batch “Fizz”: perfect matches with succulent oysters. Beer lovers won’t miss out with great craft brews from Waiheke’s own Alibi Brewing Company at Tantalus Estate.
Food & Sounds
Foodies will delight in a fine array of gourmet morsels from Waiheke’s artisan food providers. And when you’re sampling all the fine fare, be entertained by bands ROOK and DragonFly, while enjoying the lush and laid-back setting of Rangihoua Estate.
