Crave Sydney International Food Festival (October 1-31) presented by Citibank is one of five anchor events in the NSW Master Events Calendar created by the NSW Government through Events NSW. In 2009, an estimated 320,000 people attended more than 430 events across October and this year’s festival promises to be even bigger!
This international food festival offers something for everyone – large scale food events; intimate dinners cooked by some of the world’s leading chefs; authentic food experiences in Sydney’s culturally diverse suburbs; family activities on and around Sydney Harbour Bridge and islands.
From the seriously big international headline acts – the world’s number one chef, René Redzepi, at Sydney Opera House and the extraordinary World Chef Showcase line-up at Star City – to a raft of fabulous events in restaurants and neighbourhoods across the city and regional NSW, the Food Festival has a broad range of events.
People can try Breakfast on the Bridge (October 10) or a picnic on a Sydney Harbour Island (October 4, 9-10, 16-17, 23-24), spend a spring evening with friends and family at the Night Noodle Markets (October 11-15, 18-22) or eat at a list of top Sydney restaurants offering great value Let’s Do Lunch menus (throughout October).
Alternatively, take in a cooking class, a cocktail, a beer and a pie (the new Good Pub Grub event) or get sizzling at Barbecue Madness, on the opening weekend (October 2).
As always, the Festival closes with the Sydney Food and Wine Fair in Hyde Park on October 30 – celebrating 20 years of giving from our city’s restaurant community and food suppliers.
