Olive Oil & Artisan Food Festival on Waiheke Island

View on Waiheke Island, New Zealand

If you will be on the New Zealand’s North Island near the end of November, take a ferry from Auckland

to Waiheke Island to attend the Waiheke Olive & Artisan Food Festival. Buses are available from the ferry to the festival. The festival is November 24 and 25, 2012 at the Rangihoua Estate.

The event celebrates Waiheke’s Extra Virgin Olive Oils and will have more than 10 artisan food producers offering free tastings. Tickets are $15 and children under 12 are free.

Numerous wineries and vineyards are on Waiheke Island. Some have cellar doors (tasting rooms.) Before visiting picturesque Waiheke Island browse the Waiheke Island website. Perhaps your one day at the olive festival will turn into spending two or three days more days on Waiheke Island.

Enjoy!
