Showcasing Melbourne's food and wine culture, one of our favourite festivals is back from Friday 24 March to Sunday 2 April 2023. The MFWF is recognised as Australia's pre-eminent food and wine festival and this year the Food Hub is at Federation Square in the CBD. It's going to be the home of excitement and adventure with big names, bold ideas and delicious drinks over 10 days at the Main Square, Swanston St Forecourt Western Terrace, Hero ACMI, Victoria by Farmer's Daughters and Taxi Kitchen. Enjoy the Convenient Store where they'll stock a keen-eyed edit of food and drink, while showcasing the very best Victoria has to offer. Of course there's lots more at Fed Sq, you'll find listed here.

If you happen to be attending the MFWF at Fed Sq on Fri 24 Mar, enjoy Fed Live with Masked Wolf which will have you on your feet boogying to hip-hop beats. See the event page for full details and enjoy funk stylings, a rising Melbourne rapper, a South Sudanese Nairobi-born DJ, and a First Nations songwriter and rapper. As an aside, the Birrarangga Film Festival is also running at ACMI at Fed Sq from 23-28 Mar that showcases Indigenous storytellers. Enjoy the acclaimed The Drover's Wife and other films from New Zealand having its Australian premier and more.

Back to the MFWF, get your program here where you'll find lots of events you need to book yesterday already, as they're selling fast, and of course those that have already sold out, like the World's Longest Brunch and the World's Longest Lunch. However, you do have over 150 events happening all over the city, including Special Events. If you love your Surf and Turf, I'd get in quick for Audrey's at Cinder's Sensational Surf and Turf as they're selling out fast. If it's Thai food you're craving, Bangkok Street Food Festival could be the one to enjoy a cult Bangkok street-food vendor and three of Melbourne's most loved Thai restaurants. They are indeed the heavyweights heading for Drewery Lane - DoDee Paidang, Soi and BKK; all three favourites of mine.

If you'd like to justify indulging, you might enjoy a cheeky, gin-soaked walking tour with Oysters, Brothels and Booze in Little Lon. This is a 60-min walking tour that ends with an authentic 19th century Blow Your Head Off cocktail back at the distillery. For an event that sings the praises of strawberry from entrée to dessert, head for the Strawberry Field Forever Luncheon. See Left Bank Melbourne transform its terrace into a strawberry farm. See, feel, taste, pick and purchase your very own strawberries against the backdrop of the Yarra River and enjoy some great live music.

You might have missed out on the World's Longest Lunch, but you can still enjoy the Afterparty and keep the good times rolling. Head to one or more of the venues listed open from 3pm on Friday 24 March. The Arbory and Arbory Afloat, Bar Lourinha and more is on the list. Be sure to stay informed via the website, and stay updated via the Facebook page.

The good people of Werribee are getting in on the Festival action this year with a Westside Wander showcasing the fine things happening in their historic backyard. The MFWF Westside Wanders premise is simple; they gather an intimate group of food lovers and take them on a culinary tour of the Western suburbs' best restaurants, bars and cafés. Here you'll begin the good times at modern watering hole The Park, where you'll find no less than 30 taps pouring the good things, before hitting Tocca for pizza and an Aperol Spritz, and finishing on a high at Rosana Bistro and Bar with a dessert platter. There's much to discover at this Festival, so let the good times roll, celebrate our culture and have a great festive night out.
