The inaugural Coffs Coast Food & Wine Festival has received a $225,500 funding boost from the NSW Government’s Regional Events Acceleration Fund.

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh congratulates Amplify Events on this important funding injection for the festival, which will be celebrated across various local venues from 4-13 June.

“The Coffs Coast Food & Wine Festival will become a significant event on our social calendar and it will be a major drawcard for local foodies and visitors who are set to spend up in local shops, cafes and businesses,” Mr Singh said.

“The festival will be a mixture of dining sessions, workshops and digital experiences, featuring live music and art installations to create an immersive, multi-sensory dining experience.

“This State Government funding will help take the festival and live music performances for each dining experience to the next level.”

Amplify Events director Dave Mansfield looks forward to presenting this festival for our community.

“We’re extremely excited to bring the Coffs Coast Food & Wine Festival to life right across the whole region from Bellingen to Woolgoolga and locations in between, culminating in a multi-day food and music festival at Jetty Beach House, Coffs Harbour,” Mr Mansfield said.

“It’s been a really difficult time for hospitality businesses over the past few years, and the Coffs Coast Food & Wine Festival aims to shine a light on the fantastic food scene in the region and showcase top restaurants, bars and producers to both locals and domestic visitors.

“With the support of the NSW Government, this event will be a great opportunity to celebrate and enjoy the best that this region has to offer.”

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said the Regional Events Acceleration Fund is supporting the growth of existing regional events and attracting new major domestic and international events to regional NSW.

“Money rolling out right across regional NSW is helping local events go from strength to strength, helping put regional NSW on the map,” Mr Toole said.
