Sunday 26th March 2017
9am - 4pm
Experience a day of authentic country life at the Felton Food Festival. Held annually, the Festival is a showcase of everything that the Felton Valley is famous for. While the food is king, there will be plenty of other activities to take part in over the weekend with the new Twilight Dinner and Farm Tours on Saturday March 25 and the traditional one day festival on Sunday March 26.
Families, friends, farmers and food lovers can take a farm tour on Saturday and indulge at the Twilight Dinner with celebrity guests on Saturday night. Sunday is festival day where visitors can mingle amongst the wide range of market stalls, take a crop tour, meet a local farmer, take in a cooking demonstration, learn about the paddock to plate process, enjoy live entertainment and relax in the country atmosphere.
In 2017, Felton Food Festival will take part in 'The Farmer Wants a Science Life', a World Science Festival Brisbane event to be held at Cobb+ Co Museum in Toowoomba. This event, as well as the Felton Food Festival will showcase how science is changing agriculture to educate and captivate visitors and celebrate the future of farming.
Special guests include Gardening Australia's Costa Georgiadis and Jerry Coleby-Williams, chef Alastair McLeod from Channel Seven's Queensland Weekender, Queensland food champion Alison Alexander, one of Queensland’s leading pastry chefs Caroline Jones, kid-delighter George the Farmer, and Golden-Guitar-winning country singer Brendon Walmsley.
