Taste the Flavours of Mudgee

This weekend Mudgee will come alive for the annual Flavours of Mudgee Street Festival, taking place on Saturday 24 September.

A part of the Mudgee Wine and Food Festival, Flavours of Mudgee brings locals and visitors alike into the Mudgee CBD to join in on one big party with the region’s best local food, produce and wine alongside some great music and entertainment. 

There will be over 70 delicious stalls offering up a wide range of locally produced food, with everything from Nepalese momos to artisan icecream and Venezuelan cuisine, plus lots, lots more.

Of course there will also be a host of Mudgee’s award winning wine on offer, in a setting that can’t be beat with the clock tower serving as an iconic backdrop.

The Flavours of Mudgee Festival is a unique event and a celebration that’s not to be missed. Just makes sure to bring your appetite along because you’ll probably want to try a little bit of everything while you’re there.

Reserve your seat at Rylstone StreetFeast’s Long Lunch

Tickets for this year’s Long Lunch at the Rylstone StreetFeast go on sale from today and if don’t want to miss out on the best gourmet feast of the year then you better book your tickets in as soon as you get the chance.

Set in the main street of Rylstone, the StreetFeast is one of the region’s premier events, with the Long Lunch being one of its major highlights.

There is only limited seating to the Long Lunch, which people snap up quickly for the chance to sample some of the freshest seasonal local produce, set amongst the avenue of shady trees lining Louee Street in Rylstone.

Those who miss out on tickets to the Long Lunch can still enjoy the rest that the Rylstone StreetFeast has to offer though, including a fantastic mix of food, wine, markets, music, art and more.

Rylstone’s local cafes and hotels all join in on the celebrations too and you can stop in to try out the local fare while you stroll through Louee Street and enjoy all that the local shops and markets have to offer.

The event takes place on November 5, 2016 and it makes for a great day out. But if you really want to experience the best of the festival then remember to book in your tickets to the Long Lunch as soon as you can, because in past years they have been known to sell out very quickly.
