The Bungendore Harvest Festival is an annual celebration of the integrity and freshness of the region’s local produce, cold climate food, drink and fibre. It explores and promotes how produce is grown in this region, where it is grown, where consumers may access it, how to prepare it, use it, eat it and drink it.
Harvest Festival 2020 was supposed to be the year of adaption, however it ended up being the year of cancellation. The extreme conditions that the region had experienced had already taken an enormous toll on our farmers and producers when COVID came along and added insult to injury. However, the delightful upside of all the struggle of the past few years has been seeing the local community pull together to adapt, rally and rebuild. The support for local food and farming businesses has been overwhelming and gratifying and we are certainly a stronger community that we were.
Harvest Festival 2021 will be CELEBRATION of this year’s bountiful harvest and the resilience of this amazing community.
We have also started PLANNING for a huge return in 2022!!
