Gunnedah gets fresh with new Harvest festival

12 February, 2020

The date has been set for Gunnedah’s a fresh new food festival, Harvest Gunnedah, to be held on Saturday, October 3, 2020.

The inaugural Harvest Gunnedah will be held at Riverside Racecourse, Gunnedah and will feature a feast for the senses.

Gunnedah Shire Councillor and member of the Harvest Gunnedah Committee Colleen Fuller said there was a lot of excitement about the new festival.

“This will be a real opportunity for people from both inside and beyond our Shire to eat, discover and celebrate Gunnedah,” Cr Fuller said.

“We are hoping the whole Shire gets on board for this event and bring the best they have to offer to the table.

“The committee has been working hard to lay the foundations for Harvest Gunnedah. This will become a permanent fixture on Gunnedah’s calendar and we want to make the first one something to remember.”

Harvest Gunnedah will feature street food stalls, a produce market, live music and entertainment, children’s entertainment, demonstrations from local growers, celebrity chefs and lots more.

The festival will carry on the tradition of the well-loved former Porchetta Day. It has received seed funding of $17,000 through the federal government’s Building Better Regions Fund, along with $20,000 awarded to the Gunnedah Jockey Club through the Back to the Track program.

A website for the event is on its way, but you can already follow Harvest Gunnedah on its Facebook page where you can stay informed as the exciting festival plans take shape. More information will be available at the Gunnedah Autumn Markets at Wolseley Park on Saturday, March 21.
