Auckland Seafood Festival 2015: Double pass giveaway – COMPETITION CLOSED

OoooOOhhhh yes! Another giveaway! Such is the festive season. I love giving stuff away, don’t you?

Thanks to Auckland Seafood Festival, I’ve got a double pass to give away to next year’s festival in late January. To enter, fill in the form at the bottom of this post, including a skill question.


I’ve been to  Auckland Seafood Festival many times and if you love seafood, it’s a great day out. It’s kid-friendly and adult-friendly and a great way to try lots of different seafood in quick succession.

You can expect to find:

  • scallops
  • oysters
  • scampi
  • mussels
  • eel
  • fish
  • crayfish
  • octopus
  • squid
  • sea cucumber
  • turbo shells
  • prawns and prawn killers
  • kina (sea urchin)

Some of these seafoods are uncommon so this a great chance to tick them off your foodie bucket list. If you’re a blogger and you eat some weirdo things, please share them with Our Growing Edge!

Pro tip: don’t attempt raw kina on a hangover. I did it once, not my finest moment. Who knew that raw/live sea urchins isn’t an ideal breakfast food on a queasy stomach?

The music is always spectacular and the weather and location spot on. Since it is on Auckland Anniversary weekend and you get an extra long weekend, you may as well spend it on seafood gluttony.

For event information including tickets, please visit the Auckland Seafood Festival website here.

  1. I have been yearly to this event and had volunteered two years in a row. Yes, agreed it is a nice day out as this event for the past years wasn’t overly crowded so was a nice way to spend the day. Cheers.
