A Taste of Matarangi set to kick off

Live music, great food and drink, family activities and charity auctions will be on offer at the Matarangi Village Green for A Taste of Matarangi event on April 1.

Organisers said the event, which is in its eighth year, would be a family fun day out.

“There will be activities for the whole family, not just those who look forward to tasting wine, sampling delicious food and listening to great music.”

There will also be event fun rides, a bouncy castle, face painting, raffles, auctions and a charity bucket drop supporting the event charities, which are Kūaotunu Search and Rescue and Te Rerenga School.

“Fabulous music will entertain you all day with Sound Republic, Pow Wow, Mandy Meadows duo, Whitianga Dixieland Band and a Kapa Haka performance by the Te Rerenga School pupils.”

There will also be a large tent and festival-goers are encouraged to arrive early to secure their spot in the shade.

“Festival-goers should note there will only be limited space for small gazebos but plenty of space for chairs and umbrellas.”
