The combination of fine food, great music and lots of foodie activities is sure to make for an enjoyable and relaxing weekend. The events take place in and around Murwillumbah and features live music, cooking demonstrations, a film, an array of locally produced foods including organic produce. And… not to forget another important festival ingredient… some great local wines to enjoy or taste.
