A final call has gone out for stallholder applications for the inaugural Harvest Gunnedah festival.
Harvest Gunnedah will be a feast for the senses, with attendee’s invited to eat, discover and celebrate Gunnedah. The spring event will be held on Saturday, October 2 at the Gunnedah Riverside Racecourse.
Chair of the Harvest Gunnedah Committee, Gunnedah Shire Councillor Colleen Fuller said over 30 businesses had already applied.
“There are a range of businesses from the local area, New England and the Hunter Valley, with breweries, wineries, distilleries and a wide range of food producers joining in the festivities,” Cr Fuller said.
“This is a perfect opportunity for food and beverage producers to showcase their products and expand their client base.
“In May we also announced Paul West of the popular television series A River Cottage Australia as our festival ambassador and this is sure to be a drawcard.
“Stall holder applications close on the 30th of July and we have room for more to join.”
Ideas for stalls include:
- Farm direct produce;
- Gourmet foods;
- Street food stands and trucks;
- Natural products;
