The annual AnnanROMA Food, Beer and Wine Festival is a community favourite that's been held at the The Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan for 12 years and is now held over two BIG fun-filled days.

The stalls and entertainment just get better and better. There's great food, wine & beer, and plenty of it! There will be new stalls, lots of shopping opportunities, and entertainment for those who want to just chill-out, and importantly, a dedicated 'kid-zone' with the beautiful Mt Annan Garden as the backdrop.

Eat. Drink. Try. Buy.
Who said you can't have Chimney cakes or Chocolate dipped cheesecake for breakfast? It' a great way to start the day!

Then move on and travel the globe without leaving Macarthur as the tastes of Italy, Asia, Greece, Turkey, America, Germany, Russia, Lebanon, Spain are brought to you.

Of course, no festival is complete without the great Aussie sausage "sanga" from the local Lions Club BBQ Truck!

Music and more
There is a jam-packed schedule of talented singers, musicians, and entertainers over the two days with activities spread out across three zones, bordering both Lake Sedgwick and Lake Fitzpatrick.

Lakeside Lawn will feature Eat Shop Love Lakeside Markets, Food Truck Frenzy and a family picnic area with roaming entertainers and performers.

Kids Zone has play areas for all. There's a mix of paid and free activities including hula hoop workshops, demonstrations, Inflatable Zone, plaster painting, face painting giant lawn games. Of course, there's heaps of space to run and play!

Marquee Lawn is the place for serious foodies and wine, beer & spirits lovers. With a plethora of stalls featuring winemakers, brewers, foods of the world, desserts, and distillers, your taste buds can explore the world and take them home without worrying about excess luggage!

Entertainment will be across all three zones over the two days and will include local favourites The Honey Sippers. The Urban Legends can be found on the Marquee Lawn playing sets on both days, while roaming entertainers may delight you wherever you happen to be.

For more action or just a giggle there will be Hula Hoop workshops and giant lawn games.

Experience VIP treatment
Why not make it an extra special day out? The new VIP experiences at AnnanROMA include VIP parking next to the event and an exclusive styled area with VIP only access.

Reserved for guests over aged 18 and over, this area is limited to 100 people per session, across both days.

Book your AnnanROMA VIP Experience

Planning
Make sure you get the most out of the festival by bringing a blanket to relax on, or a couple of fold up chairs you can sling over your shoulder. Don't forget sunscreen and a hat, and of course, a fold up umbrella or rain jacket just in case the weather decides to turn.

Transport
AnnanROMA attracts thousands of people over the two days, so public transport or an Uber, Taxi or Mini Bus might be an option.

There will be an Uber/Taxi and mini bus drop zone

The local buses have a stop outside the main gate and buses run regularly from Campbelltown Train Station. Or take any of the buses heading to Camden, Narellan or Mount Annan and just ask to stop at the Garden bus stop on Narellan Road.

If possible, plan your transportation options ahead of time and leave the car at home, or at one of the public transport stops.

Parking
There is parking within the grounds of the Mt Annan Botanic Gardens but with large numbers, it might be wise to either get there early or leave your car nearby and pick up an alternate form of transport.

For more information and to stay up to date with the latest news visit the AnnanRoma Facebook Page

If, for any reason, you can't make this event, don't worry. There will be more later this year - August 23 & 24, and November 22 & 23.

And .... the regular, monthly Mt Annan Lakeside Markets are on the last Sunday of every month.
