A Taste of Matarangi - Cancelled for 2020

The Government is taking action based on global effects of the coronavirus also known as COVID19.  As the virus has already hit our shores preventative action is required. As organisers of this event we have a lot at stake and our first priority is the people and their health & well-being. Our volunteers, musicians, stallholders, patrons and stakeholders make up this event and we do not wish to the put people who attend or who are working in an environment of close social contact, at risk. Based on the Government’s announcement this afternoon, the committee wish to announce A Taste of Matarangi festival will be cancelled for this year. The organisers have spent months preparing for this event and are devastated to make this announcement. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
