April – Noosa Vegan Festival
Veg events are in. Fact. And Australia, home to the third-fastest growing vegan market in the world, knows how to put on a plant parade. Noosa Vegan Festival debuted in 2018, with stalls, speakers, wine tasting, cooking demos and the latest vegan products.
May - Noosa Food and Wine Festival
Still in Noosa, but this month there’s meat
Noosa's food festival is always a pleasure because they do such a fine job at keeping taste buds titillated. From food trails and farm tours to breakfast on the beach and over 50 winemakers, the set-up is as inventive as the food on your plate. And all this to a stunning Noosa Beach backdrop.
June – Haro Wine Festival
Get ready for a Spanish wine fight
Every year, Haro, deep in Spain’s Rioja region hosts a multi-day wine festival. At night, the cobblestone roads erupt into a huge street party, and at dawn, the ‘wine battle’ commences. A water fight of sorts, vessels of every variety are filled with red wine and thrown at fellow revellers.
July - Gilroy Garlic Festival
California’s riskiest kiss
Between the cooking comps and chef demos, sits Gourmet Alley. An enormous outdoor kitchen where vendors cook up garlic shrimps, pasta, breads, and in previous years, a questionable garlic ice-cream. The aroma of garlic sizzling on skillets is borderline inebriating.
August - The Maine Lobster Festival, USA
It’s cray cray!
Five glorious days to enjoy a slap-up lobster dinner, but also the perfect excuse to visit Maine’s busiest fishing port just 90-minutes north of Portland. With a Ferris wheel, races, parades and pageants, the lobsters are almost outshined.
September - Marathon du Médoc
A marathon worth training for
The annual Marathon du Médoc is a 26-mile "race" through Bordeaux’ Médoc vineyards, with 23 wine stops en route. There's also cheese, musical breaks and oyster tasting to keep your spirits up. Most partakers cross the line six hours later - on their knees and giggling.
October - Hawaii Food and Wine Festival
So much more than Hawaiian pizza
Three weekends of gourmet events across multiple exotic islands, Hawaii’s annual food festival attracts 10,000 attendees and 150 chefs. Chow down on various tropical tastes on Oahu, Maui and the Island of Hawai‘i.
November – Hong Kong Great November Feast
A food-fest and dim sum
Start stretching your stomach now. This one's a month-long line-up of gourmet food and drink events scattered citywide. From oodles of noodles to wine and whiskey walks, your belly says book now.
December York Christmas Festival
Dreaming of a white Christmas
Every November through to December, York’s medieval streets transform into a festive playground. With ice-rinks and Christmas markets, mulled wine flows and just-baked mince pies sit in every tea shop window.
