Food Festival Fun

– Artisan producers invited to Raglan’s first ‘Little Food Fest’

The Raglan Arts Weekend welcomes passionate food vendors to book their spot now for January 2015.
Raglan is gearing up for the sixth successful Arts Weekend – an event drawing summer crowds since 2008. This year, a tantalising combination of art, food, and wine is in store for festival-goers.

Original art will be paired with artisan food as the Raglan Arts Weekend launches its very first ‘Little Food Fest’ – a line-up of the very best gastronomic delights from the Waikato region and further afield. Artisan bread, wine, cheese, icecream and more will be temptingly displayed right in the heart of the action at vendor stalls on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th of January 2015.

Raglan Arts Weekend turnout in previous years has been significant, and the township will be buzzing with many art-aficionados and foodies keen to whet their appetites. Vendors are now invited to secure their place for the Little Food Fest – space is limited, and site fees kept low to ensure affordability for smaller producers. Be part of the action at one of Raglan’s biggest summer events!

 Raglan’s first Little Food Fest
 24th – 25th January 2015; book for one day ($50) or both ($90)
 Artisan producers invited to sign-up via Raglan Old School Arts Centre
 Limited spaces available
