Delicious food, fine wine and star performers will combine for the annual two-day Mordialloc Food, Wine & Music Festival.
A massive line-up of musicians – headlined by breakthrough Melbourne band Bonjah on Saturday and Aussie music legends Brian Cadd and Grace Knight on Sunday – are set to draw the crowds to Kingston’s two-day Mordialloc Food, Wine & Music Festival.
More than 35 food and drink stalls will offer gourmet delights including jambalaya, gumbo, Jamaican jerk chicken and Venezuelan street food favourite tequenos – a fried breaded cheese stick with melted haloumi – and you can quench your thirst with craft beers, sangria and lychee-infused beer.
The much-loved annual event is on Saturday, 5th March and Sunday, 6th March at Peter Scullin Reserve, Beach Road, Mordialloc. It will feature non-stop music across three stages, roving performers, gourmet food and wine stalls, rides, activities for the kids and more.
Mordialloc Food, Wine and Music Festival is renowned for attracting legendary musicians, up-and-coming bands, a mouth-watering selection of gourmet food, regionally-made wines and boutique beers.
In 2016 the City of Kingston will be introducing a Viking Feast featuring a spit roast feast, craft beers and locally-sourced produce that’s sure to tame the wildest of appetites.
The festival, which runs 11am to 10pm on Saturday and 11am to 6pm on Sunday, is expected to attract more than 40,000 people over two days to the magnificent Mordialloc foreshore. It is a family-friendly event with no BYO or dogs allowed.
While parking is available in Mordialloc around the festival site, patrons are encouraged to use public transport to attend the event.
The Mordialloc Food, Wine and Music Festival is an official event of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival and is proudly presented by the City of Kingston.
Entry costs $2 per person, or $5 for a family.
