The festival featured the best of our regions food, wine, music and local history. The highlight of the festival was meeting local producers at the Twilight Market at Jubilee Park underneath beautiful autumn trees, moonlight and fairy lights. The spirit of the local community was well an truly on show with lots of fun, generosity and laughter being had. Avenel Meats and Bank Street Pizza kept festival goers fed with lots of delicious food, local wine producers Wine by Sam, Box Grove Vineyard, Fowels Wine, Tahbilk Winery were all present serving fabulous local wine which were perfectly enjoyed on a crisp cool Autumn evening.
