Relish Food and Wine Festival information available

A LIST of activities and attractions on show at this year's Relish Food and Wine Fest is now available on the new website www.relishfrasercoast.com.au.

Relish is held on June 8 and combines fantastic food and local produce with beautiful streetscapes, Queen's Park, Mary River Parklands and the mighty Mary River.

Fraser Coast Regional Councillor for sport, recreation, open spaces and events Darren Everard said the new website would give visitors a taste of things to come.

The council received funding from Tourism and Events Queensland to help grow the event into a regional showcase using Maryborough's historic Portside District as the backdrop.

Tickets cost $10 per person and can be purchased online and include:

  • Free wine sampling from visiting wineries
  • Entry into the Food Lovers Cooking Marquee
  • All day entertainment
  • XXXX Gold Mini Retreat
  • Live Life Healthy Section
  • A limited edition Relish Wine Glass (polycarbonate) for the first 1000 customers

Cr Everard said highlights this year include a new Live Life Healthy stall demonstrating, bush tucker demonstrations hosted by Kingfisher Bay Resort, international wine tasting sessions and food and beer matching sessions.

"It's transformed the traditional Pub Fest weekend into two days of fantastic food, wine and culture."
