The 8th Whangarei Fritter Festival will be held on Saturday 28 March 2020 at Semenoff Stadium, 52 Okara Drive, Whangarei.

The Fritter Festival is a world-class wine, food and music festival showcasing the best of Northland's fritter culture. Join us for a day and night dedicated to the not-so-humble fritter: from generational whanau recipes to exotic deep fried concoctions, this is a true gourmand's delight.

The 2020 Fritter Festival is all about tradition. We're challenging chefs from across Northland to bring us their best traditional, old-school fritter recipes, using ingredients that will really put Northland on a plate. Think it sounds simple? Don't be fooled! These chefs have more than one trick up their sleeve...

Groove to the outdoor vibe with a chilled wine, a 5 star fritter and a crowd of like-minded foodies. Fritter 2020 - it's Northland, but not as you know it. 

The top restaurants and cafes will battle it out for the annual Best Fritter Trophy and you get to vote in the People's choice award.

Fritter Festival is proudly presented by Whangarei District Council.


The following bands will be playing on our live stage:

  • Katchafire
  • White Chapel Jak
  • Manalion
  • RSB
  • Tempist Fujit
  • Caged
  • Neopolitan
