Hokitika Wildfoods Festival Hokitika Wildfoods Festival

Posted on by Lesley Armstrong

 

 

The Hokitika Wildfoods Festival is on my bucket list to go to, but meanwhile my daughter went to the 2017 event, sending me photos of everything she attempted to eat.

The festival started from small beginnnings in 1990, growing to an annual festival of wild and crazy foods from the West Coast of the South Island, along with entertaining bands.  And by wild I mean foods like grasshoppers, colostrum cheesecake, mountain oysters, stallion protein shots, huhu grubs, and more.  

It's one of those events you have to go to at least once in your lifetime.  So if you are coming to New Zealand, make sure you stay here in March, when the festival is on in Hokitika, South Island.
