The Harvest Food Festival brings bubble and buzz to the air this Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st July. Perhaps could be likened to Christmas, everyone is curating, creating, concocting and consuming delicious treats all weekend long. A true celebration of the core values that brings this community together – food.
Locals will say to truly visit the Northern Rivers is to experience the exquisite array of local produce growing from our volcanic rich soils. Artisan food and beverages are in abundance with the clever community of local creatives bringing world class cuisines to these humble towns situated in the deep green shadows of the extinct volcano “Wollumbin”, meaning cloud catcher.
With over 27 vendors to explore from Tweed to Ballina there is something for everyone. Visit as many farm gates, distillers and boutique restaurants as you please. There’s options to book classes or simply show up for free tastings. Bring yourself or car pool with friends. There’s many family friendly activities too.
The best part is, there is so much on offer, no one will go hungry. With most vendors catering for almost all dietary requirements, simply take your pick! You can visit the map and download the brochure here:
