TASTE OF AUCKLAND PRESENTED BY ELECTROLUX
10 YEARS IN THE MAKING

The 10th Taste Festival in Auckland is going to be a major celebration - taking place at the new venue of Queens Wharf from 1 – 4 November.

This feature-packed festival is your opportunity to get fully immersed in the best of our food and drink scene in a fun-filled afternoon or evening. Spend a day on Auckland’s iconic waterfront, dining on signature dishes from some of our best restaurants. Get up close and personal with your favourite chefs, taste your way through amazing wines, craft beers and cocktails. Discover new treats, try one of our interactive classes or luxuriate in a VIP experience. Enjoy all this while being inspired by the sights and sounds of the festival village.

Our full restaurant line-up is now confirmed, with a fantastic range of top restaurants set to take part in this year’s festival. Newcomers include Parnell favourite Gerome offering Greek-inspired fare, Culprit with modern Kiwi yum-cha and little sister eatery Lowbrow with its take on contemporary fast food, as well as Smoko Room from Matakana bringing their infamous slow-cooked meats. Also new to the festival are Xoong with their take on North East Asian cuisine, The Shucker Brothers will shuck fresh oysters to order, a much-anticipated new dinner offering by vegan and plant-based favourite Little Bird Organics, and for an after-dinner treat, dessert specialists Miann.

Rounding out the line-up are festival favourites Baduzzi, promising to bring back their signature ½ Karitane crayfish, a crowd favourite at last year’s event; French bistro Paris Butter; Italian eatery Farina; and the Russian-inspired Vodka Room.

 Festivalgoers will now also get to enjoy some of the best music acts in the country including Tami Neilson, Hollie Smith, Barnaby Weir & Friends, Sola Rosa Sound System, Hopetoun Brown, Laughton Kora and Omega Levine, all set to perform on the outdoor stage against the stunning backdrop of the Waitemata Harbour.
