Bring your appetite (and your esky) to the Scenic Rim Winter Harvest Festival this Saturday – it’s going to be huge!
Producers and farmers from around the region will be at the Aratula Community Sports Complex, Carter Rd Aratula, for this celebration of the Scenic Rim’s farms, food and community.
Gates open at 10am and the first 1000 visitors through the gate will receive a free souvenir Scenic Rim shopper bag. This is Eat Local Week’s signature event and is a chance to eat and drink your way around the region – quite literally.
This year’s Winter Harvest Festival is the biggest yet – with 60 stalls (a WHF record!) selling everything from local vegetables to cheese, beef, bread, craft beer and even camel milk ice-cream.
Don’t forget there are free kids’ rides all day and plenty of lovely places to put down a picnic rug, or a chair, and settle in to enjoy the live music and cooking demonstrations.
The popular Kalbar & District Community Bank Tractor Pulling Competition is on at 2pm – who will pull the 12-tonne John Deere tractor in the fastest time?
