This year’s Auckland Seafood Festival is set to be the best yet!

Held over the three days off Anniversary Weekend, this is New Zealand’s ultimate seafood celebration.

The 2012 Auckland Seafood Festival will be held at Wynyard Quarter. This vibrant addition to the waterfront is not only big enough to house our ever-expanding festival, it’s great location in the BIG little city is handy for parking, public transport and accommodation. And of course it has some amazing views across the Waitemata Harbour.

All in all, it’s a pretty great place to enjoy some of New Zealand’s best seafood. There are over 100 varieties of seafood in NZ, and more than 40 different species will be on offer at the festival! All in all you can enjoy over 90 dishes including crayfish, paua, mussel, oysters, scampi, whelks and of course many different varieties of fish. Add to that all day music, loads of entertainment & competitions plus a great selection of NZ wine and beer. Hard to beat!

The Seafood School returns again with cooking classes from top chefs every day, open to all visitors with no additional charge. And for 2012 we introduce a Top Seafood Chef challenge for lucky audience members.

New this year is our 'Dine on Dockside' area featuring six great restaurants, our popular Oyster & Champagne Tent and much much more that we will reveal as we lead up to the event.
