For Those Who Appreciate Good Wine Food And Jazz
This is an exciting and entertaining free musical event with musical artists performing on three stages across the town center. Roving bands will also entertain locals and visitors.

Held annually, this year jazz, swing and blues artists will be performing over the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of February.

This is an opportunity for some of the local high school artists to perform as well as well known and international artists. This year's artists include Kimba and Ryan, St. Helena Secondary College Senior Jazz Band, Dukesy and the Hazards and many others.

Available over the weekend will be a range of tempting local food, wine and stall holders. For those unfamiliar with Eltham it is full of fabulous cafés, bars and restaurants. Some of my favorites include the Zen Den for casual dining and creative healthy food,

The Main for a large range of food and a drink from the bar, The Corner cafe for ice-creams and a cheap breakfast, The Eltham Tea house for Devonshire tea in a treed setting, Hamlets for wood fired pizza, Warehouse 266 for large lunches and decadent cakes.

Try the Sontaya Thai for an affordable Thai meal and The Little Drop of poison (previously the Lane café) for intimate socialising and craft beer or Eira Bar for a friendly smile, coffee or a glass of wine. For unique, upmarket meals try the Common.
