CANCELLATION

Seafest has become known as a festival that meets and greets the elements – no matter what is thrown at it. A huge centre marquee means revellers can enjoy the day and shelter from sun, rain, hail or snow. And we have had it all! If the event is cancelled by the organisers, tickets are fully refundable… but SEAFEST IS AN ALL WEATHER EVENT!

CURRENCY

The NZ Dollar is the Seafest currency. Eftpos facilities are available at the Bank tent on festival day.

Alcohol and food are not permitted to be brought on to the festival site. Organisers reserve the right of admission, and to search for and confiscate, any prohibited items.
