Event Information

Wildfoods is turning 30!!

Yes the 9th March 2019 is the iconic Hokitika Wildfoods Festival’s 30th Anniversary and we have an extra special program lined up for our 30th birthday!

Heighten your senses and captivate your taste buds with daring delicacies from the coast and further afield.

The #HokitikaWildfoodsFestival hosts over 50 stalls offering every element of Wildfoods from gourmet to the not so adventurous and everything in between.

We have something to tempt every palate including the West Coast’s quintessential delicacies of Whitebait and Venison to the ‘almost’ inedible icons of the Wildfoods Festival: Mountain Oysters, (lamb testicles!), Huhu grubs and possum kebabs!

Sink your teeth into the all-day festival and be entertained with live music, Boris the wild pig mascot, beer and wine tents, stage performances, buskers, huge kiddie corner and of course the intrinsic “Feral Fashion’ contest.
There’s plenty of entertainment and live music to keep you busy from morning until late.

Make sure to dress in your wildest attire for the Wildfoods Festival’s famous Feral Fashion competition. There’s a huge range of prizes to be won when you #WearYourWild

As the sun sets, be captivated by the NZ Army Band marching the crowd down to the beach for a breath-taking fireworks display.

Take a walk on the wild side!

We look forward to showing you the world-famous West Coast hospitality and culinary delights over the Wildest Weekend on the calendar.

This is an event for every foodie or festival goer’s bucket list and shouldn’t be missed.

Accommodation and other activities can be organised by The Hokitika I-site.
