Gascoyne Food Festival back on for 2020

Published on Friday, 17 July 2020 at 9:44:00 AM

The popular Gascoyne Food Festival has been reinstated after it was called off earlier in the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thanks to the State's hard border, easing of restrictions and the lifting of gathering limits, the iconic festival is now able to go ahead with a number of smaller satellite events throughout the region to showcase local produce and individual venues.

The festival's headline event, the iconic Long Table Lunch, has been transformed for 2020 into an evening of canapes on Friday, September 11 in Carnarvon.

The festival program will also include the popular Gascoyne Growers Markets, Australia's Biggest Barbecue, guest appearances from MasterChef alumni Brendan Pang and Derek Lau and a cultural food market at Gwoonwardu Mia Cultural Centre.

The festival is taking place during August and September 2020 and is supported by the State Government through Tourism Western Australia's Regional Events Program and the Gascoyne Development Commission.
