Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

Hands up who’s suffering from a touch of seasonal affective disorder? Feeling a little doleful in the depths of a cruel winter? Sick to death of the cold wet rain and eternal dusky darkness? Fear not friends, and whimper no more, for we come bearing news of lighter times ahead.

An occasion for celebration is drawing nigh, a bit like a royal wedding but more local and slightly less splendiferous.

We are honoured and overjoyed to announce the union of two of Aotearoa’s cutest and cosiest bands, The Nukes and The Slacks.

Taranaki’s sons of mischief and revelry, exponents of womble rock and funky hat folk, The Slacks will be venturing north to join forces with Auckland’s Grandfathers of ukulele funk, The Nukes.

Blessed be the citizens of Whangarei, for you are the chosen ones.

Hear ye! Hear ye! Loyal adherents of The Nukes and subjects of Slackness.. throw off your nana blankets, kick off thine ugg boots and shake off your soggy malaise, get thee some sonic tonic for what ails, for a brighter future awaits!

Family friendly show, tickets online with Eventfinda or in person at Wards Music store Cameron St. A set each along with a combined finale. Nuke dem Slacks and Slacks for our Ukes Saturday August 11th

Doors sales from 7 pm. Show starts 8 pm

Pre-sales $20 + booking fee Door sales $30
