The inaugural Gold Coast Food and Wine festival will be held from 3 to 16 June at NightQuarter in the Northern Gold Coast.
The month-long event will celebrate the quality and variety of eating experiences on the Gold Coast.
The festival will offer gastronomic experiences, degustations, cooking demonstrations, workshops, cocktail making classes, wine and beer appreciation, a pop-up Sirromet wine lounge, and signature dining experiences.
There will be a particular focus on the theatre and the art of food with performance art, sensory experiences and musical performances incorporated into the festival to pay tribute to the Gold Coast as an entertainment destination.
The launch event will take place in the NightQuarter VIP space on the 3 June and will feature canaps from local executive chefs with commentaries on the inspiration behind the creations and the provenance of the produce used.
The event will see executive chefs from across the Gold Coast collaborate, including Greg Benney from QT Hotel, and Victor Marmysz from Restaurant Lurleens at Sirromet Winery.
