Bungendore is the place to be this April
This function will give you a whole weekend to eat, drink and experience the glorious produce that comes from this region.

Bungendore is at the centre of the Southern Harvest region and is a region rich in diversified farming, gourmet foods, cold climate wines, brewing and distilling, and high-quality fibre production.

For one weekend each year, you can celebrate, explore and promote the freshness of the food which is produced in the region.



This year it will be held on 26th to 28th April 2019 till 9 pm in Ellendon Street.

The festival will explore how produce is grown in this region, where it is grown, where consumers may access it, how to prepare it, use it, eat it and drink it. The festival goes over a full weekend and visitors are encouraged to stay overnight and experience all the region has to offer.
