Started in 1995, Seafest is held on the first Saturday of October each year. A huge center marquee means you can enjoy the day no matter what the weather – Seafest has become known as a festival that meets and greets the elements in style – no matter what is thrown at it.
The festival is a taste, sight & sound extravaganza for those who enjoy good food, good company and a good time. An impressive variety of products offered, presented in many weird and wonderfully creative ways – enjoyed with continuous live entertainment on the Pirate stage throughout the day.
The fine food, wines, and beverages featured are predominantly from the local Kaikoura, Marlborough, and North Canterbury regions.
