SUSTAINABLE WASTE MANAGEMENT

The first of its kind in Aotearoa, First We Eat is a fresh, multi-sensory festival experience in the Bay of Plenty, that combines NZ’s leading musicians and culinary-creations by celebrity chefs, where guests will get to dine, drink and dance all day long.  

 

It all kicked off on Saturday 30th January at the Wharepai Domain, from midday through to 7pm, the line up featured legendary headline acts including Dave Dobbyn and The Feelers, while a host of our influential chefs will curate their own themed ‘food streets’ featuring an array of unforgettable taste sensations.

 

Alongside renowned Kiwi musical talents including; Soaked Oats, LA Women and Alayna, there was a raft of exciting food offerings. The crew of culinary stars will created an array of unforgettable taste sensations within each of the four food zones featuring; Sounds of the Sea, Plant Power, Rickshaw Ride and Stars and Stripes!

 

The full day festival was an opportunity to celebrate the people, tunes and tastes of Tauranga and the wider New Zealand music and food industry. There was also boutique breweries, formidable NZ wine brands, and some intriguing creative connections between the musicians and the food offerings.
