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!!


Starting on Friday with the Harvest Festival Launch Event, and continuing throughout the weekend, you can taste your way around a myriad of local eating establishments showcasing locally sourced ingredients and products. The Festival culminates in our Harvest (Against all the Odds) Long Lunch on Sunday.



On Saturday 17th, the Harvest Festival Market has all the ingredients you need, great street food, talks, demonstrations, short courses and festive activities.



Southern Harvest will also be holding our Harvest (Against All the Odds) Long Lunch fundraising event, and will be organising virtual as well as physical farm tours and workshops.


Why not treat yourself to a Harvest Festival weekend in Bungendore? Great Food, great Drinks, great Crafts, and when you’ve absorbed as much as you can, great places to have a Snooze!
