It’s been a hot minute since Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival has graced our shores. But now, after a pandemic hiatus, South East Queensland’s biggest celebration of food and wine is back on the waterfront. For three massive days, tuck into epic eats and equally delicious bevvies to pair.
Popping up on the foreshore from Friday, August 19 until Sunday, August 21, this feastival for the foodies will not only please your palate – you’ll also be treated to ocean views and a spectacular sunset over the water. Tickets are on sale now.
This year’s lineup is the biggest yet for MBFWF, with more unique dining experiences, pop-up bars, live entertainment, celebrity chefs, local food vendors, fireworks, masterclasses and market stalls than ever before.
General admission tickets will give you access to six festival areas, whether it be finding your next favourite tipple from the Mr. Consistent pop-up bar or meandering around The Marketplace, browsing a selection of locally made goodies.
Take your foodie experience to the next level at The Kitchen as you’re taken on a culinary journey led by celebrity chefs such as Manu Fieldel, Miguel Maestre, Alastair McLeod, as well as Georgia Barnes and 4 Ingredient’s Kim McCosker and Dominique Rizzo.
Beer and music lovers will be in their element in the Brewfest area, where they can sample 20+ local and independent brewers such as Newstead Brewing Co, Easy Times, Straddie Brewing Co and more. Once you’ve got your cold one, challenge your mates to a game of foosball or enjoy the live music on the stage nearby.
Sweet tooths won’t go unnoticed either. In fact, they’ll be completely accommodated, with a whole area dedicated to Queensland’s best dessert makers. Here, you’ll find sweet treats and dessert cocktails galore as well as a special live cooking demonstration from Netflix celebrity chef Adriano Zumbo.
“This is my favourite time of year, when we proudly showcase the depth of talent and passion coming from our agricultural, fishing and culinary sectors,” Mayor of Moreton Bay, Peter Flannery, says. “We bat well above our average in terms of the quality of our produce and appreciation for cuisine. Moreton Bay has well and truly come of age and it’s time we made the nation pay attention to that.”
