The Ocean & Orchard Wine & Food Festival is a celebration of the fabulous food, wine and music of the north. Relax in the shade of a gazebo, enjoy bountiful seafood, fabulous fresh local produce, boutique wines and gourmet cuisine from over 30 stalls, seasoned with the sounds of a continuous line-up of talented local musicians.
Bring your family or friends (or both) and make a weekend of it or stay even longer – we look forward to welcoming you to Kerikeri and to the Ocean & Orchard Wine & Food Festival in 2015!
Here are some comments from past happy festival goers:
Must be one of the best festivals I have attended! A fantastic day and what a crowd of people. There were people from all over Northland, NZ and the world and what a great event for Kerikeri and Northland this is. We will be back next year for sure.”
“On walking round the site through the day I was impressed by the layout which reflected a good eye for detail. The stage and sound) gear was impressive – I was able to listen to great music well produced as well as hold a conversation at the same time. A gazebo over every table was a must on the day. The festival gets better each year.”
