Noosa foodie festival offers more events, more often

Best of region’s food, drink and entertainment on show throughout year.

Noosa's signature foodie event, the Noosa Eat & Drink Festival, will unveil a new format this year.

Traditionally the festival has been held over four days in May but because of the unstable environment caused by COVID-19, this year it will feature a series of events throughout the year.

It will kick off with two events in February and conclude with the four days of food, drink and entertainment in June.

The Noosa Eat & Drink Long Lunch (19 February, $250 per person):

Teaming up with the charity Youngcare, Noosa Eat & Drink is hosting a long lunch in the Noosa Woods parkland overlooking the Noosa River. With catering by Chef Ryan Fitzpatrick of The Ohana Group, premium wines by Penfolds and beverages by Bricklane Brewing and Pomona Distilling Co, the event will be a truly special day. Live auctions of money-can't-buy experiences will also form part of the lunch to help raise funds for Youngcare.

Sumptuous High Tea Soiree in the Park (20 February, $149 per person):

Nestled under a grand marquee in the picturesque Noosa Woods, this indulgent high tea experience will feature a delicious menu by Ryan Fitzpatrick, accompanied by a range of cocktails, bubbles, organic teas and coffees.

Autumn Fare (11-14 March):

Autumn Fare is a collection of bespoke events that will showcase Noosa’s restaurants, chefs, breweries, distilleries and producers. The program will feature long lunches, degustation dinners, sunset soirees, guest chefs, cooking classes and food and drink discovery tours.

Noosa Eat & Drink Festival (11-14 June):

Spread over four days, Noosa Eat & Drink Festival is an annual love affair of great food, drinks, live music and entertainment in one of Australia's favourite foodie destinations. More details to be released in March.
