A celebration of Coromandel seafood & cuisine

WHITIANGA SCALLOP FESTIVAL 2019

The Whitianga Scallop Festival is a celebration of Whitianga seafood and marine heritage, held annually in September. 

 

Due to planned upgrades to the Whitianga Marina and Whitianga Town Centre, Whitianga Scallop Festival will be taking a “Gap” year for 2018.

This decision has not been made lightly by the committee but logistics and costs to relocate for one year was not feasible for the festival.

We will be back for 2019, ready to brighten what will be Whitianga’s town centre new look

WHITIANGA SCALLOP FESTIVAL 2019

The Whitianga Scallop Festival is a celebration of Whitianga seafood and marine heritage, held annually in September. Now in its thirteenth year, the event has grown into one of New Zealand’s iconic seafood celebrations.

The concept of the event is simple – Scallops cooked in a myriad of different ways by talented national chefs, restaurants and community groups and matched with quality entertainment including live bands, seafood cooking classes and demonstrations. The event is held inside a purpose built village of marquees over one day, with local venues and café’s staging a program of events and theme nights in the four fringing days.
