Organisers expecting a bumper crowd at Winter Harvest Festival 2022

The Winter Harvest Festival is back, bigger and better than ever, serving up a delicious day of family fun at the Aratula Community Sports Complex on Saturday 2 July.

The long-running festival will cap off a huge Scenic Rim Eat Local Week program for 2022, starring over 125 fun and flavoursome events from 25 June to 3 July.

Division 6 Councillor Duncan McInnes is thrilled to be welcoming revelers to the festival after a two-year hiatus.

“The Winter Harvest Festival will be the cherry on top of this year’s bumper Eat Local Week program, and we are raring to go,” he said.

“The whole Scenic Rim is looking stunning, the weather forecast is looking great, and we have the best-ever line-up of stall-holders and entertainment, ready to host a fantastic day out for the whole family.”

Gates open at 10.00am and visitors will be able to sample the delicious offerings and have a yarn with more than 40 local stallholders including:

The event attracted over 12,000 enthusiastic attendees the last time it was held in 2019, and with 2020 and 2021 having to be cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic, organisers expect to top that number this year, with people keen to get back to what they have missed.

“The Winter Harvest Festival truly has something for everyone,” Cr McInnes said.

“From tasting tables to food trucks, rustic bars overflowing with beer, wine and spirits, a fashion on the field competition, cooking demonstrations, live music, kids’ entertainment, and the always-competitive Bendigo Bank Kalbar & District Community Bank Tractor Pull event testing people-power against a 12-tonne tractor!”

“The Winter Harvest Festival brings the best of the Scenic Rim’s local producers, suppliers, retailers and chefs together for an excellent celebration of our region and I look forward to showcasing Aratula and the Scenic Rim to both locals and visitors next weekend.”
