The Rotorua Matariki Dish Challenge, an eagerly anticipated culinary event celebrating indigenous kai, will be postponed from Matariki 2023 to Matariki 2024 due to resource pressures on our participating food and hospitality providers. The decision was made after careful consideration by the organizing committee, taking into account the need to ensure the event's continued success and the ability to deliver an exceptional experience for all participants and manuhiri.
RotoruaNZ would like to extend their gratitude to all participants, sponsors, and supporters who have shown unwavering enthusiasm for the Matariki Dish Challenge. The event's success is a testament to the dedication and passion of everyone involved, and we look forward to welcoming you all to the Matariki 2024, where we will embark on another extraordinary culinary journey.
