Come along and have #ATasteOfTheWild at the iconic Hokitika Wildfoods Festival Saturday 10th March 2018 at Cass Square, Hokitika.
2018 will see the 29th annual Hokitika Wildfoods Festival which will continue to captivate all of your senses with its unique mix of tastes, sights, smells, sounds and touches, which are all a key part of the famous West Coast hospitality.
We have over 50 stalls offering up every element of Wildfoods from the gourmet to the not so much and everywhere along the spectrum in-between. Every realm of Wildfoods will be explored and catered for those at the Festival, from the West Coast icons of Whitebait and Venison to the edible icons of Aotearoa and abroad. This is an event for every foodie's bucket list, offering from delicacy to disgusting, we have oyster to mountain oysters and everything in between. Stallholder Applications are open via Wildfoods.co.nz.
In the past two years, we have had Salmonella Dub and The Black Seeds headline our event and 2018 will see yet another prominent New Zealand Act grace our stage. Our headliners will again be supported by a range of other locally, nationally and internationally renowned demonstration chefs, buskers, roving entertainers, MCs, comedians and stage acts. Not to forget a range of other things going on around the site to keep every member of your family or group entertained. Entertainer Applications are open via wildfoods.co.nz
Make sure to dress up or down for the famous Feral Fashion competition with a great range of prizes to be won from friends of the Festival for those that #WearYourWild.
Other events over the Wild Weekend include things to do on Friday (Wild Warm Up) and Saturday (Official Afterparty) nights, along with a weekend long market in Hokitika Township.
