Countdown to A Taste of Matarangi Festival

A Taste of Matarangi food, wine and music festival has been a favourite event for friends and family, young and old to attend each year on the Coromandel Peninsula. This years programme of musicians, demonstrations, food and beverage stall holders are guaranteed to offer a special day out on the Matarangi Village Green!  Foodies and music lovers get your tickets quick and get ready as we are on countdown to A Taste of Matarangi on the 7th April!

A Taste of Matarangi has a fantastic line up of local talent and live bands that will be playing right throughout the day.

We are really excited to be able to bring A Taste of Matarangi Festival back to Matarangi for its 6th year.  Each year it just gets better and all proceeds from the day will be donated to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter and Kuaotunu Search and Rescue.
