As if our winter belly wasn't already in peak condition, Ballarat goes and puts on a potato festival which is surely just teasing us at this point.
In its 2nd year, the Ballarat Potato Festival will keep your starch levels high with potato doughnuts, potato pancakes, pie and mash, gnocchi, loaded fries, and, of course, baked potatoes.
Vendors include The Local, The Forge, Old Curly Fries, Traditional Baked Potatoes, Pickles Bar, Bagel Junction, and many, many more.
What: Ballarat Potato Festival
When: Saturday 30 June
Where: The Mining Exchange, 8 Lydiard Street North, Ballarat
