What’s new, what’s returning and who’s coming to Noosa for the Noosa Food & Wine Festival 2019? Deb Caruso has the INside word!

The Noosa Food & Wine Festival is happening again from 16-20 May 2019 and whether you are looking for beachfront brunches, dinners with celebrity chefs, live cooking demonstrations, hinterland trail experiences or a party under the stars, the 2019 program has it all. Here’s our round-up of what’s new, what’s returning and who’s coming in 2019.

What’s returning

The iconic Noosa Main Beach events return in 2019 with a series of brunches and sunset parties taking place. Events to be hosted under the beach tipis include old favourites such as the Festival Opening Party and the Beach Sundowner Closing Party; and exciting new events to tempt and treat with names like Well Nourished, Blush + Bubbles (think French Champagne, Bellinis and Bloody Marys) and Club Crusoe on the beach!

Noosa’s best restaurants and bars will be collaborating with visiting chefs and winemakers, creating unique events across the Festival. Visiting us in 2019 to work alongside our fabulous local chefs includes the crème-da-la-crème of Australian food royalty such as Alla Wolf-Tasker, Alessandro Pavoni, Alastair McLeod, Bruno Loubet, Giovanni Pilu, Jo Barrett, Jock Zonfrillo, Paul Carmichael, Neil Perry and more. There will be a range of hinterland tours which will take guests out and about discovering beyond the beach and WOHO returns to celebrate women in hospitality with Christine Manfield, Imogen Czulowski and Alanna Sapwell at Wasabi on Sunday.

The Long Lunch on Hastings Street will take place on the Saturday and the Festival Village returns for Saturday and Sunday featuring Tastes of Noosa, Cooking Demonstrations, Wineries, the Producers Market and much more.

What’s new

So much goodness is happening in 2019 with Beyond the Beach events providing some truly memorable events including the Modern Australia lunch with Jock Zonfrillo, Clayton Donovan and Alastair Waddell with resident forager and pioneer of the Australian bushfood industry, Peter Hardwick.
