The humble spud; comfort food comes to mind. Who doesn't love a good Potato Festival as the weather turns down the heat a few notches and leaves you hungry for something inviting and comforting. Head to the Festival on Saturday 30 June 2018 from 3pm to 8pm at The Mining Exchange Ballarat, 8 Lydiard St N, Ballarat. Entry is by gold coin at the door.

The humble spud has come a long way from just being baked and boiled. You'll be faced with the variety of dishes and various forms it has taken in its versatility. Who doesn't love a good crust of spud on a shepherds pie? Go beyond the familiar fries and potato salads, and think gnocchi, and more. Experience the potato in a variety of dishes and forms as the produce of the region is put under the spotlight. If ever you needed an excuse to carb load, here it is.

As part of the Ballarat Winter Festival, this is not the only event to enjoy. Check out the others on the website. There's the pie competition, the hot chocolate historical city walking tour, the red wine and a warm fire event, seasons of the dark, meat and malt, Hop Temple's Christmas in July, beer & brains, salumi & charcuterie festival and more, to whet your appetite. All happening in June/July 2018, don't miss out! Check it out!
