What is the Real Food Festival?
With over 100 stalls, prepare to have your tastebuds tickled.
The Real Food Festival is a fantastic celebration of the wonderful variety of food that Sunshine Coast producers, manufacturers and restaurants have to offer, and a brilliant way to talk, taste and buy from them. With stalls, demonstrations, discussions, hands-on and other activities throughout the weekend, the Festival has something for everyone and is a great way for people to support the best of Sunshine Coast regional food.
At the Maleny Showgrounds all weekend September 8-9 9am-4pm:
Follow the food chain from paddock to plate while you taste, learn, and laugh… Proudly sponsored again by IGA Sunshine Coast, whose support is greatly appreciated, the Festival will feature more than 100 stalls showcasing good local foods and related products.
Four venues will keep you entertained and informed:
- The Real Food Kitchen, sponsored by The Natural Foodstore, features 10 cooking demonstrations showcasing the skills and passion of our talented Sunshine Coast chefs (with a couple of guests).
- Our Nourishing Ideas venue, sponsored by Jeffers Market, is the place to go for information and conversations about diet and the connections between food, illness and health.
- The Kids Arena, sponsored by Eumundi Markets,is where the action is: kids cooking activities, jumping castle, garden talks and fun activities that germinate a life-long passion for good food.
- Food for Thought is the issues venue – experts will discuss impacts on our food system, locally and globally, and what you can do to create change. This venue features two panel discussions at the end of each day with all speakers contributing their ideas on a topical question.
