One of Tamworth’s most popular family events is back again during the 2017 Taste Tamworth Festival. Taste in the Park returns on Sunday 30 April in the beautiful grounds of Bicentennial Park and this year, the focus is on families.
The event features a full day of sensational food and wine where visitors can sample regional food, meet the producers, watch cooking demonstrations or relax in the garden bar while the kids enjoy the ‘Bite Size’ food and craft area.
Tamworth Regional Council Manager Events Barry Harley said this year’s event will be a hit for families looking to enjoy a day out.
“There are many events throughout the Taste Festival where a call to the babysitter is in order, but Taste in the Park is different due to its dedicated kid zone, ‘Bite Size’.
“Bunnings will run activities such as pizza making and painting pots to plant herbs which make for a great take-home memento. Tamworth TAFE will be running a cupcake decorating station and there will be giant board games and a plaster painting craft stand.
“Of course, we have a fantastic range of produce with over 50 stallholders attending this year and a great mix of tastes to suit everyone ranging from coffee and cheese through to trout, wine and cider.
“Favourites such as Pat’s Lebanese Catering and The Pig and Tinder Box will be there plus we welcome a few new vendors including Upper Hunter Smokehouse, Falcon Grove Olives and The Plains Pantry. It will be a fantastic day out, to enjoy great food delicious wine and entertainment – a perfect way to spend a Sunday.
