Seafest is an iconic event held annually in the heart of coastal Kaikoura. The weekend-long festival brings together a veritable feast of local seafood, reputable wine producers, quality beer brands and musical talent from September 30th - October 1st 2016.

Seafest will kick off with the Big Top bash on the Friday evening. The music continues on Saturday, creating a melodious backdrop for festival goers – many who step into character, entering the inventive and highly entertaining Seafest Best Dressed costume competition. Saturday also features chef demonstrations, live bands and children’s entertainment.

The true highlight is the diversity of stalls offering delicacies from the sea and land. Previous menus have included baby octopus, paua, crayfish, a variety of fish species, wild game, and vegetarian options.
