Donna Wells of Nelson’s Finestkind has been promoting her region’s scallops at the festival for the past eight years and says it’s well worth the trek from one end of the South Island to the other.
This year’s event didn’t disappoint.
A festival-goer enjoys scallops.
“It was amazing. A dream run.
The Bluff Oyster and Food Festival is very well managed and takes care a lot of infrastructure which is of great assistance to stall holders,” Wells says.

“The presentation is unique, as is the festival itself. It was a great day – over 5000 people having fun, excellent entertainment and great experience all around really.”

Participating with such an expensive product and the logistics of getting there are challenging, she says.
“It’s about being there and promoting seafood – that’s what I do.”
