Now in its eighth year, the event has grown from a small boutique event to a much larger festival featuring around 50 stalls. The events location in Dunningham Park, right in front of North Cronulla beach, has helped make this event a success.
Great Australian wines will be available over the weekend, including those from the Hunter Valley, Mudgee, Riverina, and Margaret River regions. Beers and cocktails are also available.
To concume alcohol at the event visitors must purchase a souvenir festival glass for $2 and tokens ($1 each) which can be redeemed at the wine stalls.
The wineries will determine the number of tokens per glass based on the type of wine, however the following can be used as a guide:-
1 token = small tasting of the wine
3-5 tokens = a full glass of wine, beer or a cocktail
Jazz and Shiraz, is not just about food and wine. Music is an equally important part of the proceedings. Each year organisers provide a great line up of free music and entertainment, and this year is no exception.
Talented jazz musicians DIG will be sure to get visitors grooving on the Saturday. The Ritmo Arch, Leanne Paris, Miss Donne and the fabulous James Valentine will also be on stage.
Visitors to the event on Sunday will be treated to performances by Mr Percival, The Strides, the Kirrawee High School Jazz Band and Johnny G and the E Types (Memphis Soul Revue).
For motor enthusiasts a colourful car display will take place in the Plaza across the weekend from 10am daily. While in the Plaza be sure to visit the Pavilion stage, where a selection of blues, roots, funk and rock music will be performed thanks to local music venue the Brass Monkey.
