The Tairua School Food & Wine Festival is a major event for the Tairua local community and an important fundraiser for the Tairua school. Saturday 4th January 2020 will be its 26th time.
The Festival has become a favorite staple of the Coromandel Summer bringing together terrific music, sumptuous food, wines & beers, kids entertainment, and great New Zealand produce. This festival caters to adults and kids.
This year the music lineup is headlined by Fuller & The Empties. A local Tairua band playing a variety of covers specialising in classic and new rock and reggae.
New to the festival is country and folk singer Kerryn Fields; winner of MLT Songwriting award at the NZ Country Music Awards 2019 and of the Newstead Live Music Festival Troubadour Award.
Also new to the festival is Dylan Wade. A performing musician with many years of musical experience. His guitar playing and style is so diverse it can fit into many musical genres.
Back for a second time is New Zealand-based Swiss/Kiwi Sonic Delusion (Andre Manella) with his uniquely upbeat, funky folk full of irresistible atmospheric joy; blending dynamic layers of rhythm, tones, bass lines and vocals.
Enjoy food, beer and wine from 30 plus vendors. Colorful and friendly street entertainers, a fabulous kids’ area including face painting, creative activities and massive inflatable fun. Test your skills and win supreme at our rugby toss and the harbor hole-in-one golf.
