Whitianga Scallop Festival Celebrates 10 Years

Whitianga Scallop Festival Celebrates 10 Years

The 2014 Whitianga Scallop Festival prepares to celebrate 10 years of shucking good times. “This years event, due to take place on the 6th September is going to be big with organisers going all out to make the 10th anniversary one to remember”, says festival co-ordinator Fional Kettlewell.

For the past 10 years tickets have been scooped up as fast as they have become available with almost every festival being a sell out. “Throughout the last nine years the festival has showcased some of New Zealand's best entertainers with the likes of Holly Smith, dDub, Hot Grits and Greg Johnson and celebrity chefs which included Ray McVinne, Al Brown, Nici Wickes, and Brett McGregor, this years festival will be bigger and better”, she adds. “If you haven’t experienced a Scallop Festival before or plan to make this year’s your first, we suggest you start planning now”, advises Fiona.
