EAT
This year, visitors to the island get to enjoy Aotearoa’s oldest dish, with a truly unique Motutapu hāngi experience thanks to HĀNGI MASTER. Rewi Spraggon, founder of Hāngi Master believes that to cook Hāngi for people is at the heart of the welcome and hospitality of Māori culture. Traditional Māori kai using a time-honoured ancestral practise to heat rocks with manuka timber then bury the food in the earth to cook a delicious meal, which takes on the flavours of the earth and the smokiness of the timber. Soul food at its best! Kai available include HĀNGI TUTURU (Pork, Chicken, Potato, Kumara, Pumpkin, Cabbage, Stuffing and Watercress salad), HĀNGI PORK BELLY BAO, PORK BUNS and HĀNGI PIE.

A tasty selection of Auckland food trucks will also be available, including spanish paela, your classic hot chips and real fruit ice cream. A range of Gluten free and vegan options will be available. 

DRINK
And for those who enjoy a tipple while forgetting about life for a while, beverage partners include ice cold MUMM CHAMPAGNE, STONELEIGH WINES, ABSOLUT VODKA RTD, JAMESON WHISKEY RTD, and MOA BEER. FOR THE BETTER GOOD water will be available along with KARMA COLA range of beverages.  

DANCE
And of course, the big dance features a mixture of local and international flavours.
