About Sample Food Festival and Events
Sample Food Events is a boutique food and events consultancy connecting food, producers, chefs and foodies for unforgettable tastes and flavours.
Our flagship event, Sample Food Festival, a taste of Northern New South Wales, is the premier food event for Northern New South Wales. Find out more about Sample Food Festival 2021 here. Sample Food Festival takes place on the 1st Saturday in September at the Bangalow Showgrounds, in the Byron Bay hinterland. Since our debut festival in 2011, farmers, producers, chefs and a whole range of creative individuals from all corners of the region, have come together to share their wares, their passion and their knowledge.
Each year foodies from far and wide have the opportunity to “sample” the best food and beverage, Northern Rivers and beyond has to offer. The region’s top restaurants compete for the coveted “Gold Fork” awards and collaborate on a special luncheon. Stall holders will also have the opportunity through a targeted networking program to create new business relationships and further strengthen local business industries.
The 10th Annual Sample Food Festival has been postponed due to the current COVID-19 situation in NSW and we will be announcing the new date ASAP. Join us at the Bangalow Showgrounds for $5 and $10 tasting plates from the region’s top restaurants as well as some of the best beverages Northern New South Wales has to offer, market stalls, live music, guest chefs and more to be announced including pop up events.
