Whitianga Scallop Festival

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

Now in its fourteenth 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 festival is nestled alongside the Whitianga marina and the stunning harbour entrance is the backdrop to this seafood extravaganza!

He rae ki te rae, he ihu ki te ihu,
Te hau ka rere, te ha ka tau

A meeting of peoples, a mixing of cultures,
a blending of heritage, a sharing of future
