Oyster Festival Matakana 2019
This year's festival will include shucking competitions, live music and cooking demonstrations.
Given its close proximity to Mahurangi Harbour, Matakana serves as the perfect location to host a festival dedicated to oysters. For this year's edition of the suitably titled Oyster Festival Matakana, local oyster farmers will be shucking up a storm and serving their delights both au naturel and paired with local wines.
The all-weather event held at The Farmer's Daughter on Sunday, 6 October will come alive with oyster shucking competitions, live music, cooking and wine demonstrations, and arts and crafts. Those not too keen on sampling briny bivalves will still have plenty alternative options to choose from, including delights from Sawmill Brewery and Double Dutch Fries.
So you can take full advantage of the vino on show, return coaches will be leaving from Auckland CBD, North Shore, Warkworth and Matakana. Book your seat in the ticket packages.
