Coast Events

Time to get your wild on!

Hokitika Wild Foods Festival

The Hokitika Wild Foods Festival takes place in Hokitika on 13 March 2021.

The popularity of this amazing Coast event is such that if you are planning on coming from out of town, now is the time to book your accommodation. Leave it until closer to the actual event and you could find all accommodation is full.

We have a video story for you here, capturing all the magic and daring of this absolutely stunning and crazy event. Sit back and go wild!
