Whitianga Oceans Festival 

The new 2022 Whitianga Oceans Festival (delivered by Whitianga Scallop Festival Inc) is a superb day centred on seafood, music, beverages and entertainment. The festival celebrates New Zealand caught seafood along with our nation’s marine heritage – while local scallop beds rest and recover for now. The 2022 event is the sixteenth festival and continues a significant tradition as one of New Zealand’s most iconic seafood/ kaimoana celebrations.

You’ll get to savour a variety of seafood cooked in a myriad of different ways by renowned chefs, food trucks and local community groups. The seafood is complemented with an array of local and New Zealand beverages, and you’ll be entertained by live bands, buskers, seafood cooking classes and much more!

Top Chefs: Showcasing kaimoana are some of NZ’s top chefs. Former Master Chef Judge Ray McVinnie is a regular presenter, and Nici Wickes and Michael van de Elzen also feature to round out a trio of talented chefs. Each chef will perform a 40 minute culinary presentation, so prepare to be inspired with seafood cooking master classes! 

Entertainment: Expect a fabulous line up of talented entertainers with live music on two stages playing from start to finish. 
Food: Over 30 food stalls and food trucks offer a variety of delicious seafood and other tasty treats. You’ll be able to taste delicious, fresh aromatic dishes from foodie vendors. 

Beverages: Enjoy some of NZ’s finest wines, beers and ciders and match them with the delicious variety of seafood on offer. Look forward to lagers, pilsners, pale ales and hazy ales from excellent brewers. Plenty of delicious non-alcoholic drinks are available too. 
Wineries: Up to eight wineries are hosted at the Festival, offering a variety of fine wines to complement the food. Pair the wine varieties with the many dishes you’ll taste on the day.
