The combination of a long weekend for Canberrans and Victorians, some beautiful weather and the lure of some of the finest food the Sapphire Coast has to offer, once again created a foodie festival made in heaven.
For the seventh year running the festival has attracted big crowds and 2019 was no exception. Within 10 minutes of the official opening time queues were starting to form around Eastwoods and Wild Rye's.
The sectioned off bar area around Longstocking Brewery proved a popular stopping off point with hay bales for seats.
Anthony Osborne, of Sapphire Coast Destination Marketing said it was good to see some new producers involved at the festival.
It is the second year of the road closure which Mr Osborne felt worked well.
"We know from our contacts with the accommodation industry that this festival is a driver for tourism and we have been told that people will book for the following year," Mr Osborne said.
