Sample Food Festival
A Taste Of Northern New South Wales
Sample a taste of Northern New South Wales, is the premier food event for Northern NSW. It 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 New South Wales has to offer. The region’s top restaurants compete for the coveted “Gold Fork” awards and collaborate on a special luncheon.
Sample Food Festival 2018 presented by the Gold Coast Airport will be held 8am – 4pm at the Bangalow Showgrounds on Saturday 1st September 2018. $5 entry (kids free) $5 & $10 restaurant tasting plates. Over 150 local producers and lifestyle exhibitors.
