The Gold Coast is finally getting its own signature food and wine event. The inaugural event will be held across the month of June at NightQuarter on the Northern Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast Food and Wine Festival will be a month long signature event to celebrate the quality and variety of eating experiences on the Gold Coast. The festival will offer gastronomic experiences, degustations, cooking demonstrations, workshops, cocktail making classes, wine and beer appreciation, a VIP Lounge, competitions and signature dining experiences.
The Gold Coast’s new foodie mecca, NightQuarter, will be the backdrop of the festival. It will be an event that not only showcases what the Gold Coast can do with food, but elevates the eating experience. There will be a particular focus on the theatre and the art of food…with performance art, sensory experiences and musical performances incorporated into the festival to pay tribute to the Gold Coast as Australia’s destination for entertainment.
The launch event will take place in the NightQuarter VIP space on the 3rd of June and will feature exclusive creative canapés from local Executive Chefs with commentaries on the inspiration of the canapés and the provenance of the produce used.
The event will see a collaboration with Executive Chefs from across the Gold Coast including chefs from QT Hotel and Restaurant Lurleens at Sirromet Winery; combinations of mouth watering experiences from the food vendors at NightQuarter who have already proven themselves to be trend-leaders in the Gold Coast food space; and local providors.
A diverse program of food events will be held every Friday and Saturday night in June from 4-10pm. Both Gold Coast locals and visitors alike will be able to immerse themselves in the experience of food and wine.
The event will run from 3 – 25 June at NightQuarter in Helensvale. The program will include various ticketed and free events. Tickets will be available from gcfoodandwine.com.au
