Eat Local Week will run from Saturday 28 June to Sunday 6 July right across the Scenic Rim region. The Winter Harvest Festival, Eat Local Week's signature event, will be held on Saturday 5 July in Aratula.

We would love to hear from growers, producers, retailers, vineyards, breweries or any other business that produces or uses local products who would like to participate in either or both events.

Eat Local Week and the Winter Harvest Festival were a huge success in 2013 with in excess of 7,000 visitors attending more than 60 events right across the region.

This year with even more promotion locally, in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, we are expecting another hugely successful event.

Eat Local Week:
Eat Local Week is a showcase of the food, wine and beverages that are locally produced in the Scenic Rim. This week long event was launched in 2011 and has grown in size and scale each year. Past Eat Local Week programs have featured a wide variety of events from fine dining experiences to free and low-cost activities for kids, locals and visitors including; farm tours, cooking classes, producer dinners, wine tastings, bush-tucker experiences and much more!

Every legally operating business located within the Scenic Rim Local Government boundary is eligible to apply to participate. All events however must display a strong connection to local food and/or food production, wine and brewed products. More information is available in the application form.  All applications will be assessed for suitability and you will be notified accordingly.

Winter Harvest Festival:
The Winter Harvest Festival is a one day festival for farmers, producers, locals and visitors to celebrate Scenic Rim's premium food and wine. The festival aims to take visitors on a taste trip around the Scenic Rim by presenting them with a wide range of locally produced food and beverages, housed in individual marquees/stalls offering their product for sale; tastings of their product; and tasting plates for sale. We invite applications for stallholders to promote quality Scenic Rim food products. More information is available in the application form.
