Full steam ahead for foodie festival

Posted: 11am 16 Jul 2021

Organisers of Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival are counting down to the event on July 30 and 31 and August 1, working closely with Queensland Health to deliver a COVID-safe event and reassuring ticket holders.

It follows news this week of new COVID-19 cases and the extension of restrictions until July 23.

At this stage, the festival team is confident this year’s festival will go ahead but is monitoring the situation closely and working with Queensland Health.

Festival organisers want to assure ticket holders, or those keen to buy tickets to Saturday and Sunday, that if the unthinkable happens, the event will either be postponed or full refunds offered (minus the booking fee). Ticket holders will be contacted directly via email.

Tickets are not necessary for the free launch party on July 30.

Anyone planning to attend the festival and launch party should visit the website, subscribe and follow the Facebook page for festival updates.

The festival will adhere to all COVID-19 requirements in a bid to keep the community safe, while hosting an event that will provide some much-needed relief in what has been a topsy-turvy year.

Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival is the signature event of the six-week Tastes of Moreton Bay program, and will be held at Apex Park, Woody Point.

From unique dining experiences, cooking demonstrations, pop-up bars, live entertainment, food trucks, fireworks, masterclasses, and market stalls; the 2021 festival program has the recipe to satisfy everyone’s palate.

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) has partnered with Moreton Bay Regional Council, Tourism & Events Queensland and sponsors to deliver the event in a new, bigger, COVID-Safe location, which will capitalise on Woody Point’s stunning sunsets.
