The Whakatāne District is brimming with wild food and natural abundance, making it the perfect place to host an event to celebrate this and to build awareness of our environment’s precious natural resources.


The 2022 Local Wild Food Festival at Ohope is a three day food festival comprising unique food experiences, learning opportunities via workshops and the opportunity to leave with a deeper understanding of the plentiful foods on offer within our rich and abundant environment

We are pleased to be partnering with Bay of Plenty " Flavours of Plenty" Food Festival   

Not a cook, but keen to join us for a day of entertainment, food demonstrations, delicious food and mellow vibes?

Local Wild Food Challenge is set amongst a festival that celebrates local food, sustainability, and the environment. We have an action-packed programme including live demonstrations with food tastings, an interactive mystery box challenge, live bands, a craft beer garden, food stalls and more!

We also need volunteers to help make the event a success!

If you'd like to be part of the incredible event crew, please contact us now.
