Hot on the heels of the recent Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival, the City of Moreton Bay is about to embark on another culinary adventure with the Tastes of Moreton Bay Feastival starting soon.

It will be a month-long celebration of flavours, landscapes, and culture that will take visitors on an even deeper journey with local producers from September 1 to October 1.

This feastival is not just about savouring extraordinary dishes; it's a transformative experience that immerses attendees in Moreton Bay’s culinary and agricultural tapestry.

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) CEO Natassia Wheeler says the Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival was a triumph that showcased the excellence of local chefs, producers, distillers and brewers, and the Tastes of Moreton Bay Feastival enables locals and visitors to continue the culinary journey.

“This Feastival is an embodiment of our commitment to celebrating local produce and producers, fostering a deeper connection between our community and the food that sustains us," she says.

The Feastival offers a range of events, from free gatherings highlighting local artisans to ticketed experiences that allow patrons to partake in interactive workshops, guided tours of farms and vineyards, and unforgettable long-style lunches and dinners.

Food & Agri-Business Network (FAN) CEO Nicole McNaughton says the feastival celebrates the dedication of the region’s farmers, producers, and chefs.

“It provides a platform to showcase the passion of our Moreton Bay growers and makers for their produce, industry and region. This Feastival is truly a tasty mix of all of Moreton Bay's best ingredients," she says.
