Great FitzRoy Mussel Fest

7th January 2017

Port FitzRoy, Great Barrier Island


The 2017 Mussel Fest will be held at The Boat Club, Port FitzRoy, Great Barrier Island. 

Come and celebrate the summer at the
18th Annual Great FitzRoy Mussel Fest

Mouthwatering mussels au naturel or as the special ingredient in delicious mussel-based cuisine, mussel chowder, kebabs, fritters and other yummy cuisine. Live music and entertainment all day.

Port FitzRoy, with a resident pop
ulation of about 30, is one of the best natural deep water harbours in New Zealand. The population swells dramatically in summer when up to 900 boats anchor in the many sheltered bays and coves around its edge.

The food stall and bar area at The Boat Club Tavern is a restricted (R18) area with a $10 entry fee (ID must be produced if requested). Children are able to access the restricted area for free only if they are accompanied by their parents.

The FitzRoy Family Festival

is held alongside the Mussel Fest, on the Landing Reserve, behind the Port FitzRoy Store, across the road from The Boat Club.  Children's entertainment and live music plus local crafts and a few non mussel food stalls.

 

 

Run by; North Barrier Residents & Ratepayers and funded by Auckland Council Music in Parks.
