The best way to combat the winter blues is to get out and enjoy the elements, to bring friends and family around the table, and experience Devonport's beauty through winter's lens.
This year Devonport is participating in Auckland's Elemental winter festival, offering locals and visitors even more reasons to get outside and and love our special place, Tāmaki Makaurau.
Elemental AKL draws on the elements of air, earth, fire and water to energise and entertain, and Devonport's events will do exactly that. So rug up, switch off the telly, and bring your friends to enjoy what our special village has to offer.
Events in the Winterfest Devonport programme include:
- Fashion on the Wharf: See the Devonport Ferry Terminal activated as it has ever been before. Emceed by Pippa Wetzell and in support of Dress for Success, Fashion on the Wharf will present a collective of leading and emerging local labels, including Wallis, Sills + Co, as well as the unwearable art creations of award-winning designer, Beatrice Carlson. Enjoy delicious Mediterranean and Turkish-inspired canapes and beverages on arrival. Thursday July 25 @ 7pm, Devonport Ferry Terminal. Tickets holders can enjoy 15% off any meal at Devon on the Wharf on the same night.
- The Travelling Fare: Wander down Devonport's ‘dining corridor’ on Victoria Road for the ultimate progressive dinner experience. Partake in a distinguished four-course elemental feast. Each dish will incorporate edible natives and locally sourced ingredients and be inspired by one of the four elements, earth, air, fire and water. Each dish will be perfectly matched with a New Zealand wine tasting. Only 36 tickets at 6pm & 7.30pm every Tuesday of July, $110 per head. Book here.
- Matariki Dish: There's no better way to celebrate the māori new year than with friends and family around the table. During Matariki 7 of Devonport's eateries will be offering a unique and delicious 'matariki dish' to their menu, incorporating local ingredients, edible natives, or using traditional cooking methods.
