Celebrate local food, farming and fibre

This is shaping up to be a fantastic weekend!

Join us for a weekend that promises to put Bungendore on the map as an identity for food, farming and fibre related activities.  The Bungendore Harvest Festival will promote integrity and freshness in the growing, breeding and production of produce in the Southern Harvest Region.

On Friday 28th April, linger over meals showcasing locally sourced food and beverages.

On Saturday 29th April, the streets of Bungendore will come alive with stalls, talks, cooking demonstrations and other activities. The Festival will take place in marquees along the footpaths in Ellendon Street and at participating businesses. Stalls along Ellendon Street will include fresh seasonal produce and meat from local farmers, food preserved from local harvests, local wines for tasting, other local food delights.

On Sunday 30th April, explore the region and discover Bungendore’s potential as a regional food destination. Participate in farm and winery tours, sample Bungendore’s freshest and finest local food at cafes and restaurants, and attend courses and demonstrations. If there’s something that takes your fancy, we suggest you book now to avoid disappointment.  Click on the links to find out more about events.
