Real Food Festival

 The Real Food Festival is returning to Maleny in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland and this year it's going to be bigger, better and lots of fun!
Last year over 4000 visitors flooded through the gates so the 2012 Real Food Festival has been extended to two days to give more people more opportunity to participate.
2012 Highlights

  • Over 100 stalls covering a wide range of food and food-related interests from primary producers to prepared food
  • Cooking demonstrations featuring talented local chefs, together with high-profile guest chefs
  • Dedicated kids arena with pizza-making, plant potting, farm animals and entertainment
  • Wellness Space with advice on eating for good health
  • Food for Thought talks on subjects such as the Carbon Tax, organic vs local, and preparing food for babies
  • Live entertainment with seating on hay bales under the Big Red Tent
  • Growing, harvesting and cooking with bushfoods
  • Book signings with high-profile authors
  • Food as Art component with short films, workshops on creative writing, edible books and short food films
  • The Real Food Festival is about authenticity: all food on display has been grown or produced in the Sunshine Coast bioregion according to the interconnected Slow Food principles of good, clean and fair.  You’ll be inspired by our passionate producers and chefs, and have a fun family day out.

Come to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland for the weekend: visit a farm, participate in a cooking class, walk in the rainforest, shop in delightful mountain villages and try our excellent cafés and restaurants.  Choose from a range of accommodation options including luxury spas, B&Bs and motels.

Best of all, come and see where good food comes from and follow the food chain from paddock to plate.
