For this free community event, this year's theme is 'Local Heroes'. The event will feature all local chefs across Western Sydney showcasing their signature dishes and with over 40 stalls of varieties of food and beverages, you're going to want to come to this event on an empty stomach!

Not only will you get to stuff your face with all the delicious food on offer, you will get to learn from celebrity chef Paul West (Lifestyle Food's: The River Cottage) and the 2011 My Kitchen Rules winners Sammy & Bella, some handy cooking tips that could turn you into a full blown 5 star chef. For the kids as well, there will be a pizza making workshop running throughout the day and plenty of activities for the young ones to enjoy themselves.

Another fantastic instalment of the day will be the focus on "Make, Eat, Grow". As the name suggests, it will be an informative part of the day about home-grown ingredients and their use and the event will be showcasing a delicious array of edibles, beverages and produce all from local Western Sydney. 'Gardening Australia' (ABC) will have their very own Costa Georgiadis featuring on the day who will be presenting a number of sustainable gardening demonstrations to fill you in with all the information you would need to start up your very own ingredients garden.
