Sydney's Inner West Launching Inaugural Food and Wine Long Lunch Series on 22 August 2015
Good food and wine and a special location in the Leichhardt Town Hall and adjoining outdoor area. What more could a great food and wine festival need. But there is more - long communal tables, stalls with great food and wine choices - and artisan merchandise. All this topped off by entertainers and cooking demonstrations by 'chefs with taste'!
Local artisans and businesses in the Leichhardt, Annandale, Balmain, Rozelle, Lilyfield and Birchgrove area will showcase their local produce that marks the Inner West as a premier Sydney food destination.
In 2015, the inaugural event on 22 August will be the lead-up to a 'long-long' lunch at the Norton Street Italian Festa on 25 October. Now in its 29th year, Festa is Australia's largest street festival regularly attended by over 130,000 visitors.
From 2016 there will be three annual Leichhardt Long Lunch Food and Wine Festivals. Each year the Series will close as a highlight of the popular Norton Street Italian Festa.
The new Series is an initiative of the Leichhardt and Annandale Business Chamber, sponsored by Leichhardt Council and organised by Impact Exhibitions and Events – the team behind Festa.
