  • Rather frustrating that dates cannot be set in advance when so many other events do. Some venues have busy calendars and currently we are left with facing the choice of taking confirmed bookings from enquiries now, or losing those bookings and holding several dates waiting (and waiting) for dates to be confirmed by the MFWF organisers. The Long Lunch events can only be held on one specific day during the MFWF. Does anyone have any idea when the organisers might actually decide to confirm the 2019 dates?

  • Yes how do we apply to be part of the 2019 Melb food and Wine Festival?
    We are wanting to stage an even on the 17th March 2019 showcasing the produce grown in our Shire.
    Ou produce goes into a lot of top restaurants in Melbourne and we would really like to promote our wines meats, and other produce in the Loddon Shire.
