APPLY FOR FESTIVAL INCLUSION
After the success of the inaugural Fleurieu Food Festival last year, the committee is excited to open event applications for 2023. The Fleurieu Food Festival is a month-long culinary festival, to be held in August 2023 across a variety of locations including farms, cafes, restaurants, markets, wineries, breweries, distilleries, and community spaces. The festival showcases the Fleurieu Peninsula as an exciting culinary destination with a fresh, innovative and authentic approach. The festival presents events that embody excellence and quality of product, while reinforcing the image of the region as home to premium food, wine, and tourism experiences.
If you have a food related business in the Fleurieu you are invited to take part in the festival by including your event, special menu, tour, tasting, collaboration, workshop or market in the program.
