The Bay of Islands IT Festival, is in its 7th year, and once again will be in the beautiful town of Paihia in the Bay of Islands. This is “it!!” – The event not to be missed. You have to Love it! Cook it! Drink it! Bite it! Sing it! Dance it! Enjoy it!
Most importantly be at IT!
This boutique food and wine festival is a successful recipe of fantastic food, wine, entertainment and friendly locals all mixed up together in the beautiful Bay of Islands.
Live Music on stage all day leading up to Kiwi Icons – Dragon.
This is a family friendly festival, which is why under 5’s are free, and there is a children’s area with entertainment provided, like, bouncy castles face painting and a magician.
Imagine, parents you can sit back and enjoy the music and taste some of the exceptional food and beverages!
A limited number of tickets will be available for this boutique festival, but that said; the stage can be seen from all over the festival – it is a great friendly festival where you are never far from the action.
The Bay of Islands is a top holiday destination that has retained its small friendly feel – there is plenty to do around the town whether it is to take a boat trip to see the dolphins, have a swim, kayak, visit Waitangi or head into the bush. Of course, you can just sit in one of the many cafes and watch the world go by!
This festival has been a sell out in previous years. This year, it falls during school holidays; Saturday 24 September – Sunday 9 October. Check out our Freedom Friday rates, or Manager’s madness specials. Are we going to offer you a deal? You BET!
This is a small boutique festival; we are a small boutique property. Why not combine the 2 and have a lovely weekend away at The Pearl of the Bay, Paihia. We are a little gem.
