submit a festival event

We’re excited to announce that Flavours of Plenty Festival 2023 event submissions are now open! The deadline to submit your event is Friday, 28 October 2022 (but we encourage you to make your submission as soon as possible!)

Flavours of Plenty Festival will run over ten days next year from 24 March –  2 April 2023. The theme is Auaha Reka ō Toi | Plates of Plenty, meaning the flavoursome and creative gifts of the Bay of Plenty. The theme is broad, so interpret this how you like, but we’d love for you to get creative and to incorporate the amazing food we produce right here in the Bay!  

If you’re in hospo, a producer, an artisan, an event provider a keen foodie or anything in between, we’d love you to come on board and put on a festival event.

If you’ve got an idea but need some support, whether it’s looking for a venue or partnering up with another local business, we’ve got you! Rae Baker, our lovely festival director is here to answer your questions. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch at
