21 Dec Ginger Flower & Food Festival
Join us from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th of January 2020, for the Ginger Flower and Food Festival! Now in its 24th year, the festival promises to delight the senses with three spectacular days of food, flowers and entertainment celebrating the best of the Sunshine Coast region.
The Ginger Factory will burst with colour and flavours, showcasing an exquisite range of ornamental gingers and heliconias, which thrive in the Sunshine Coast’s sub-tropical conditions. Popular presenters Soil to Supper’s Cath Manuel and Horticulturalist, Paul Plant will again share their words of wisdom during the informative garden talks over the three days.
The Festival will be packed with an exciting line-up of Sunshine Coast chefs, including local favourite, Matt Golinski and new additions, Lisa Maher from Makepeace Island and Dylan Campbell – resident mixologist from Sum Yung Guys. They will be highlighting all that is fresh to the Sunshine Coast and how these ingredients pair so well with ginger.
All the food and fun that the Ginger Factory is famous for will also be on offer, including their Ginger Town shopping, Ice-Creamery, Live Bee Show*, rides* on Moreton the ginger train and Overboard boat ride.
