Celebrating International Friendship Day
Words by Kylie Knight

It’s International Friendship Day and our friends at Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival are running a two-for-one promotion today to celebrate. Here’s the details

The promotion enables festival-goers to buy two General Admission tickets or two VIP Oasis tickets for the price of one to be used on Sunday, August 6.

That means you and your bestie can go to the festival for half price.

Head to the Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival Facebook page for details. The offer expires at midnight tonight.

About the festival

Over three scrumptious days (August 4-6, 2023), more than 15,000 people are expected visit the festival precinct, watch live cooking demonstrations, rub shoulders with celebrity chefs, listen to live music and sample the delights of the Moreton Bay’s amazing food bowl.
