Event Organiser: Southern Harvest Association ( https://southernharvest.org.au/ )
The Bungendore Harvest Festival is an annual celebration of local, cold climate food, drink and fibre. It explores how produce is grown in this region, where it is grown, where consumers may access it, how to prepare it, use it, eat it and drink it. The Festival occurs across a weekend to encourage overnight visitors to the region.
The Bungendore Harvest Festival encourages and promotes the integrity and freshness of the region's produce. The festival actively promotes local food, farming and fibre related businesses.
Starting FRIDAY evening, and continuing throughout the weekend, local food venues are encouraged to showcase locally sourced food and drinks on their menus for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike. Assistance with sourcing local produce can be provided via Southern Harvest (link to Local Business Participation Form: https://goo.gl/forms/aNUV4Jb2fIKlSLfH3 ).
On the SATURDAY, from 10am-4pm the streets of Bungendore will come alive with market stalls, talks, demonstrations, short courses and festive activities.Market stalls are welcomed from farmers and producers growing, sourcing and producing within the Southern Harvest Region (link to Stallholder Application Form: https://goo.gl/forms/bkUBVvgHf1bJHtsF3 ).
SUNDAY will give visitors the chance to explore further afield and recognise Bungendore and surrounds as a regional food, wine and produce destination. Visitors will participate in farm and winery tours, sample the freshest and finest local food, and attend half day, intensive courses focused on farming, producing, making and creating.
The Bungendore Harvest Festival aims to have the participation of as many local businesses as possible. Together we can promote Bungendore as a regional food and tourism destination, profile our amazing regional produce, celebrate our farming history and continue to build our community.
