It's a seafood celebration! The incredible Whitianga Scallop Fest has now evolved sustainably into the Whitianga Oceans Festival - From dock to dish - A celebration of all things seafood will be held in Lyon park on the stunning Whitianga Harbour.
"There is currently a rāhui (no harvest) in place for the collection of scallops in the Opito Bay area, and elsewhere in New Zealand. The sustainability of scallops locally and nationally is a priority for Whitianga Scallop Festival Inc. In observing the need for the rāhui and the need to ensure the regeneration of scallops, the festival organisers will focus on offering a variety of seafood from New Zealand waters this year as the local scallop beds are left to rest."
Can you believe this festival is now having it's sweet 16th birthday? With a mouth watering selection of fresh seafood prepared by amazing chefs and food vendors and paired with incredible wines and beers.
Plus, live music, street performers and more! You cannot miss out on this amazing event.
