Oysters By The Estuary

The Oyster Festival Matakana makes its annual return, after two successful years, on Sunday the 6 October, 2019. Its new, sea-side location at The Farmers’ Daughter showcases not only one of the best views in the area, but easy bike and pedestrian access from both Point Wells and Omaha too. Ticket holders can expect full access to a pop-up Teepee Village - the first of its kind in the area. The Teepees stand a cool ten metres tall at their highest point, and provide oodles of floor space for each stall holder to fully showcase their offering, and to shelter guests in case of any rain on the day.

A sneak peak of the raft of entertainment, to be announced, include a demonstration tent, local acoustic musicians, corporate suits, VIP area and the much anticipated shucking competition!

Corporate Suites, the festival's version of the Corporate Box, facilitate the hosting of larger groups of guests, in your own personal enclosure. Perfect for hosting clients, as well as end of year staff get togethers or just simply a luxe day out with friends. Dedicated wait and bar staff are provided to each Suite ensuring hospitality on the day is a breeze. Included in the package is a private corporate suit for up to 20 guests, alongside surprise and delight moments with local oyster farmers, internal and external area to entertain your guests, priority festival access, private luxury bathrooms and more. Nominate a member of staff to set up company branding before your guests arrive too.

As you’d expect, the VIP tent is situated in a prime position, just back from the waters edge. VIP tickets include an ice-cold Mimosas made with local citrus on arrival, as well as access to the VIP Members only, private bar, fully stocked with your favourites. A dedicated and knowledgeable Oyster Shucker will be shucking the very best oysters the region has to offer. The VIP experience wouldn’t be complete without luxury toilets and priority parking.

Available spaces in the Corporate Suites and VIP tent is obviously limited and selling fast so book soon to avoid missing out. 

Early bird tickets are $29.50 and available until 31st July.

VIP Entry $64.50, GA Entry $34.50, Kids Entry (10-17yrs) $10.50. Tickets available from iTicket. Corporate Suites price available upon application.
