The Whangarei Fritter Festival is back in its fourth year bigger and better on Saturday 19 March 2016!

Come and enjoy a relaxed day with great music and a feast of fine wines and gourmet fritters from our region's finest local restaurants and wineries. Aotearoa's favourite roots reggae band Katchafire will be headlining the Fritter Festival joined by The Jordan Luck Band, Tiki Taane and the Hipstamatics with support from local acts Otium, 5K, The Avenues and The Gold Cloaks.

The top restaurants and cafes will battle it out for the annual Best Fritter Trophy and you get to vote in the New World Regent People's choice award. Plus there is also the giant waterslide when you're not dancing or enjoying the delicious fritters on offer.
