A Bite-Sized Tour of Our Region

MADE NORTH CANTERBURY presents a day entirely dedicated to celebrating and discovering all things grown, made, caught and reared in North Canterbury.


Connect with the People, the Land, the Products...


This one-day event, hosted on February 19th, 2022, will give you the chance to create your own self-drive taste trail and connect with the people, land and products behind our thriving food and beverage region.

At each Taste Destination, see demonstrations, workshops and unique behind the scenes views of how their product is perfectly crafted.

Your ticket includes entry to as many destinations as you can get to in the day, a behind the scenes look at the Taste Destinations and tasters of their wonderful product.
