A FOOD and wine festival in the Bankwest Stadium precinct is being planned to showcase the best produce in Western Sydney.
With Western Sydneysiders having endured a long and difficult lockdown, the Western Sydney Forage may be just the tonic as we slowly get back to doing the things we love.
Bankwest Stadium will become a centre of celebration for Western Sydney culture on Saturday, March 26 as the festival features more than 60 wineries, breweries, distilleries and food vendors from the west on a jam-packed day full of fun and flavour.
The Stadium’s western precinct will be transformed into one of Greater Sydney’s biggest Food & Wines shows with a host of stalls and outdoor dining at the event, which will also feature entertainment headlined by chart-topping ARIA Award-winning artists Sneaky Sound System.
The Western Sydney Forage will be a community event to bring back the joy to Greater Sydney, post-COVID lockdown. The event will run in full compliance of NSW Public Health Orders at the time with an approved COVID Safe protocol.
The day will run from 11am to 6pm with tickets to go on sale soon.
Bankwest Stadium Business Development Manager Jordan Kerry said: “We’re looking forward to bringing people back together again in a COVID Safe environment as we welcome some of the best food and wine producers in Western Sydney to the venue.
“Because it is Australia’s most culturally diverse region, Western Sydney features an amazing array of flavours and delicacies.
“There will be an exciting range of food and wine that highlights the flavours of local operators in the community, promotes local providores, and showcases NSW growers, producers and winemakers.
”We want this to be an opportunity for Greater Western Sydney to move forward and to embrace everything that is great about the region.”
Western Sydney Forage is delivered by the minds behind the highly successful Capital Food & Wine Festival, Capital Promotions Group.
