Feast Waikato celebrates our wonderful region with a selection of fabulous foodie events, many held at Hamilton Gardens. Visit Feast Waikato to check out the program.


Update Monday 16 March

In light of the unfolding events around COVID-19 the Waikato Food Inc team have assessed the risks of continuing with Feast Waikato and believe the best course of action is to continue with all ticketed events as planned.

All free events (Markets, movies, Teddy Bears Picnic, Chewing the fat with Denise Irvine) are all cancelled due to the new government advice halting all events with more than 500 people.

The government does not see any need to halt normal business, so neither do we.  As representatives of the local small businesses and the hospitality sector, who will all be hurt by these events, we believe it imperative our message remains that of – support local, enjoy and celebrate what we have here in our region. And what better way to show your support than by attending some amazing Feast Waikato events. Feast Waikato falls 17 days after the 14 day self-isolation rule came into place and thus any people travelling from overseas and at risk of carrying the disease will be exempt from attending events or have sat out their fortnight of isolation.

Please know that the Waikato Food Inc team will continue to reassess the situation and if circumstances change we will act accordingly.
