Deep breaths, please everyone. First release tickets have finally gone on sale for the Noosa Food & Wine Festival, so you better get in on that quick sticks baby, ‘cause you know they gonna’ sell out fast.
That’s right, our fave foodie festival is coming back in 2018 and it’s set to be the biggest and best yet, with more than 35 events scheduled over the four-day food lovin’ fest. Woot!
So, what’s on the agenda this year, you might wonder? Well, we’re glad you asked. The two hottest places to be are under the Noosa Tipis on Noosa Main Beach or inside Festival Village, located in Noosa Lions Park. This is where majority of the events will be held and they are dreammm locations. Dreams, we tell you. We’ve done you a solid and rounded up the best of the best the festival has to offer this year. (Quietly, did it for ourselves too.)
The Producers Pavilion
Have you ever wondered who is actually behind some of our best produce? This is your chance to meet some of region’s finest artisan producers. Did we mention you can also have a taste test?
Taste of Noosa
What could be better than our fave Noosa restaurants teaming up and showcasing the best bites they have to offer? Think nom noms from Sum Yung Guys, Embassy XO, Village Bicycle and Providore on Hastings. Sounds like something we want in on!
Craft Beer & Cider Corner
With our love of craft beer here on the Coast, it’s no wonder 2018 will be the year the festival welcomes the Craft Beer and Cider Corner to the partay. It’s going to be the go-to spot to check out some of the region’s best craft brewers in action. This place had us at Pale Ale.
Master Classes & Celebrity Chef Cooking Demos
Have you ever wanted to learn tips and tricks from the very best? Well, welcome to Master Classes with some of our finest local and national chefs. Sit back, relax and let them do all the hard work. Besides, who doesn’t love a cheeky demo?
The Long Lunch on Hastings Street
It’s back. The Long Lunch is easily the most popular event taking place during the festivities and we are thrilled. Fancy dining on your fave treats from local faves including Noosa Beach House, Locale, Bistro C and Café Le Monde. This is the longest lunch you’ll ever have, we promise.
If a brewery trail is more your speed then we've got you covered peeps. You can experience a lazy afternoon exploring some of the Noosa region's newest breweries, with stops in Eumundi, Cooroy and Noosaville. Pass us a craft and sign us up stat! Oh and don't worry about driving, an air-conditioned bus awaits.
But if eating and drinking isn’t your style, don’t sweat it. You can always join in on the Rise & Nourish sesh where you’ll yoga on the beach for an hour of power. Yassss!
We know one thing is for sure, this year is set to be their very best, and we can’t wait for our fave festival to just get here already.
