When it comes to food, we like it served with wine, beers and music. And that’s exactly what we’re getting when the Western Sydney Forage festival featuring takes over CommBank stadium. It’s bound to be a curious culinary journey with 60 wineries, breweries, distillers and food vendors getting in on the act to tantalise your tastebuds.
The food and wine festival has secured one of Australia’s best onstage and live talents of the past couple of decades, Sneaky Sound System, to perform alongside a whole host of other to-be-announced acts. Born in a basement in Bondi, the Australian dance music group are Aria Award winners and their 2006 debut single remained in the Top 100 of the ARIA Singles Chart for 73 weeks. Recently, the group has released hit songs like Do Ya Thing, Can’t Help The Way That I Feel, WE BELONG, and Tell The World, which is certainly what you’ll be doing when having found the beer, wine, spirit or tasty morsel that has you salivating for more.
When it comes to the food, wine, beer and more, Western Sydney Forage is keeping most things under wraps for now. Slowly, though, they are releasing information on who will be joining the festivities in Parramatta. For now, we know that Dope Fusion will be on the premises with their mouthwatering street eats and they will be joined by the Blue Mountains’ small-batch distillers Karu Distillery as well as cocktails made from Shoalhaven’s Tara Distillery.
You’ll also be able to step back in time when it comes to desserts as Classic Soft Serve will be serving up their delicious sweet treats. We’ve also heard that there’ll be market stalls on the day as well, so you’ll be able to pick up some tasty goodies to take home.
The food and wine festival is fun for the whole family, with Children GA tickets available for those aged 13-17 and kids 12 and under allowed in for free (so long as they’re with a paying parent or legal guardian).
Western Sydney Forage festival featuring Sneaky Sound System takes place on Saturday 26 March from 11am to 6pm for a full day of eating and drinking.
