Devenport Wine & Food Festival

Saturday was the best day we had during our stay in Auckland.

We took a 12 minute ferry ride to the community of Devenport where they were having a Wine & Food Festival. There were 20 different wineries there and numerous food vendors to enjoy, but the highlight for us was the music.

The Swedish Abba cover band Bjorn Again was there and they did the 3:30 to 5:00 set playing all our favorite Abba songs.

The area was packed when they were playing and everyone was having fun singing along and dancing to the music.

The venue was right on the beach and next to the Devonport Ferry terminal.
