The Scoop 

Introducing MELTED, New Zealand’s first ever ice cream and frozen dessert festival. Taking over the Tauranga Waterfront on Saturday 9th February 2019, MELTED is a celebration of all things cool and sweet. With a wide range of ice cream, gelato, sorbet, fruit ice cream, milkshakes, and a whole heap of other treats, there's something for everyone at MELTED.

Featuring cooking demonstrations, live music, food trucks, entertainment, competitions, and a whole heap of ice cream, MELTED is the place to be this summer!


The Tauranga Waterfront is one of the most loved venues in the Bay of Plenty featuring some of the Tauranga’s top bars and restaurants, stunning views of the harbour, the amazing tidal steps and bombing platform.

It is also the home to our favourite pooch from Donaldson’s Dairy with the amazing Hairy Maclary statues. With ocean views, plenty of free parking and access to public transport options, Tauranga Waterfront is the perfect venue for this innovative new festival.
