10am - 6pm
Another year has been and gone and what a day it was!
With over 5000 people attending the 2013 event it really was a spectacular day full of fun, food and that famous festival atmosphere. It was a great family environment to celebrate all things Mussels.
Back by popular demand was the Marine Farming Association Industry Marquee where you could go behind the scenes into the Mussel Industry and see how intricate this delicacy is. It was wonderful to see so many people utilising this area.
Another favourite back this year was the Competition area where we got to see teams and individuals battle it out to be crowned the winner of the KONO Mussel Opening Competition.
Of course as well as the excitement of the competition element and the Industry marquee was the live entertainment throughout the day with the beer and wine flowing, sun shining and Ray Woolf singing it was a recipe for success.
We would like to thank you all for attending this annual community fundraiser and hope to see you all back in 2014 for another day of celebration in the Greenshell Mussel Capital of the world...Havelock.
"...this was a most splendid festival. The best in Marlborough. It had the ultimate mixture of a great venue, interesting stalls, superb and abundant food, free and brilliant cooking demosnstrations, the ability to drink either wine or beer and a most entertaining programme of music which was superb. I thought the whole day beats anything that has been put on in Marlborough over the past 30 years. Congrats to all concerned and we'll be back next year." - Sandra Cowan, Blenheim
We look forward to seeing you in 2014 for another fantastic day in Havelock!
