Pop the champagne because the tastiest event on the calendar is back in 2024, and tickets are now on sale.

Foodies are counting down the days until they can sip, eat, dance, shop at South East Queensland’s largest, tastiest, and most delicious celebration of food at this year’s Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival.

Over three scrumptious days (Friday, 23 – Sunday, 25 August 2024), foodies will make their way through the festival precinct, winding along Woody Point’s foreshore, famous for its spectacular sunsets and unparalleled ocean views across Moreton Bay.

More than 20,000 people are expected to visit the festival precinct to watch live cooking demonstrations, rub shoulders with celebrity chefs, listen to live music, and sample the delights of Moreton Bay’s amazing food bowl.

City of Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery says the Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival is one of the biggest foodie events on the South East’s culinary calendar. 

“Attendees can take in the sunshine along the Woody Point waterfront while they enjoy some of Australia’s best produce and most incredible chefs,” he says. 

“The three-day festival will be a true feast for the senses. Our City of Moreton Bay’s subtropical climate offers a bounty of produce, from pineapples, strawberries and raspberries to shellfish and beef, and they will all be showcased by some of Australia’s best chefs over three amazing days. 

“I encourage locals, and foodies far and wide, to book their tickets now – and even stay and play longer in our beautiful City of Moreton Bay.”

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) CEO Tash Wheeler is excited to announce the program of chefs appearing at this year’s festival. 

“This year we’ve got a delicious lineup of chefs across two cooking stages including Matt Golinksi, Adam Liaw, Brent Draper, Georgia Barnes, Kim McCosker, and resident local culinary genius Alastair McLeod, who will be making tastebuds salivate,” she says.

Tash says Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival is a reminder to visitors that Moreton Bay is Just Down the Road and should be on the top of the bucket list for those seeking top-quality food experiences, not just over the festival weekend, but all year round. 

“The festival is rapidly becoming a must-do event in South East Queensland and Australia, significantly boosting our City’s already booming tourism economy contributing to 4.2M visitor nights and cementing our region as a key growth opportunity for Queensland in reaching 2032 targets,” she says.
