Plan ahead to please your appetite this Taste Festival

The New England North Wests’ Tastiest time of the year is just a few weeks away so if you haven’t already, you better start planning which events, stalls, locations, restaurants and bars are going to be taking your order over the 10-days of Taste Tamworth.

There’s so much to do, see, eat, drink and enjoy over the popular festival, as foodies flock from near and far to enjoy the finest quality food, wine, produce and entertainment in the region and beyond.   

Michaela Stevens, Events Coordinator at Tamworth Regional Council said: “Tickets are selling, and events are booking up fast. We don’t want anyone to miss out on the delicious experiences of Taste, so plan ahead and remember to leave plenty of room to treat the tastebuds.”
