The Air Chatham’s Sunshine and a Plate food festival returns in 2020 to celebrate the abundant food, lifestyle and sunshine in the Whakatāne District. Showcasing the best the region has to offer, the programme has an incredible variety of events that are sure to tempt the taste buds and delight the senses.  Tickets sell out quickly, and public sales launch December 1st.


All proceeds from Sunshine and a Plate go directly to Hospice Eastern Bay of Plenty - providing excellent, compassionate palliative care for everyone throughout the Eastern Bay of Plenty.
