An Unforgettable Culinary and Music Festival by the Sea

The A Taste of Matarangi festival has become a cherished tradition in the coastal haven of Matarangi, attracting thousands of visitors to each event. The festival's unique beachside vibe, coupled with an impressive lineup of local musicians, food vendors, craft beer brewers, and winemakers, creates an experience that is both enjoyable and memorable.

So save the date for April 6th, 2024, and join in the celebration of Matarangi's culinary delights, music, and the generosity that makes this festival so special. 

The 2023 edition of A Taste of Matarangi surpassed all expectations. The committee would like to express our gratitude to the sponsors, volunteers, and community who made this remarkable event possible. As event organisers we were delighted to have been able to bring the festival back on the event calendar this year and look forward to planning for 2024!
