Treat yourself to a wonderful weekend of food, wine and music!
Come and enjoy the Waikato Times Food and Wine Festival, in its brand new home on Claudelands Green. Savour delicious cuisine, live entertainment, including jazz, blues and soul, while strolling among the festival’s many and varied stalls and exhibitors.
Bring a sun umbrella, rug and chairs and settle in for the day! From fabulous wine tastings - to tasty morsels prepared by Waikato’s leading restaurants, foodies and chefs - you will enjoy a leisurely and entertaining, gastronomic adventure.
Families can enjoy the adjacent children’s play ground while serious foodies can spend time in the Kitchen Things Cooking Theatre where leading chefs (including Masterchef's own Josh Emett) will be demonstrating their skills.
All this played out against a backdrop of the historic Claudelands Grandstand and wonderful music provided by local and overseas guest artists, including back by popular demand the fabulous Jan Preston.
