Winter Harvest Festival

Experience Winter Harvest Festival in all its glory as it relocates to the picturesque country town of Kalbar. It’s the essence of Eat Local Month in one unforgettable, flavour-filled day!

Our Scenic Rim Food Ambassador chefs, growers, producers and flavour artisans come together to showcase the region’s produce with cooking demonstrations, engaging displays, and workshops.

Take a leisurely stroll through 60+ local produce stalls, enjoy tastings of this season’s harvest, sample local wines, beers and spirits, say hi to the team from ABC Brisbane, and don’t miss the World-Famous Tractor Pull!

Foodies will enjoy the demos and talks at the Homestead Kitchen stage featuring Scenic Rim Food Ambassadors Alison Alexander, Cameron Matthews, Javier Codina and Josh Lopez, and the option of a ticketed masterclass at The Pavilion.

There will be live music with Lyric and Silk & Oak at the Roots & Revelry Stage and plenty for the kids to do at the Sprouts Play Patch, which promises a world of fun and learning about farming and nature for the little ones. For the bigger kids there’s the excitement of the Junior Tractor Pull Competition!

The Green Gatherings Grove is the perfect spot to sit for awhile enjoying delicious dishes from our ready-to-eat vendors.

Remember to bring an empty esky (or three!), pack the kids, rally your friends, and prepare for the ultimate farm gate experience – it’s an event that simply cannot be missed!
