Com­bine a love of good food, wine, and mu­sic for a week­end away from Auck­land this spring with our Bay of Is­lands Food Fes­ti­val give­away.

North­land will be turn­ing it on for the an­nual ‘‘it!’’ Food andWine Fes­ti­val in the Bay of Is­lands on Oc­to­ber 1.

The pop­u­lar fes­ti­val is re­turn­ing to Pai­hia for its sev­enth year and in­cludes North­land food and seafood and award win­ning wine, beer and cider.

We are giv­ing away a fes­ti­val pack­age val­ued at $648, which in­cludes two tick­ets to the fes­ti­val, a two night stay in Pai­hia and two tick­ets on the Ex­plore NZ Hole in the Rock cruise.

Other artists like The Hip­sta­mat­ics, 5k, JPG and Char­lotte Jones will en­ter­tain crowds dur­ing the day in the lead up to Dragon’s set.

Event or­gan­iser Steph God­siff says the fes­ti­val has been a hit from the word go.

‘‘Each year we en­deav­our to bring an iconic New Zealand band to the Bay with top North­land acts play­ing all day,’’ God­siff says.

‘‘Peo­ple love the fes­ti­val as it is so much fun. It is friendly and the food­ies and vine­yards are so proud to show­case the re­gion, it’s smiles all round.’’

The fam­ily-friendly event also in­cludes oys­ter shuck­ing, kina suck­ing and pie eat­ing com­pe­ti­tions, plus face paint­ing and a bouncy cas­tle for chil­dren.
