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.
