Are you adventurous when it comes to trying new foods? Does the sound of huhu grubs, jellied grasshopper and pistachio and cicada ice cream make your mouth water or do scallops marinated in sauvignon blanc and strawberries dipped in chocolate sound more enticing? Either way there’s something for you to try at the Wildfoods Festival, celebrating the food and drinks of New Zealand’s west coast.

If you think you can’t stomach anything so exotic you can steel your nerves with a few glasses of locally sourced and produced wines, beers and spirits.

Wildfoods Fest

Held in March the Wildfoods Festival is a highlight on anyone's calendar! Fantastic food, and a great event! It is held in Hokitika (not town mentioned) which is on the West Coast of the South Island.
