Tastings on Hastings is back for its 15th year! Our region’s premier culinary and cultural festival will once again ignite the senses on the weekend of October 27-29, 2017.

This year, the Tastings on Hastings Main event will be held on Saturday 28 October from 12noon until 8pm on the western end of Town Green.

This one-day extravaganza will combine day and night time festivities previously held over two days.

Our more intimate event foot print combined with our festival line-up will provide for an energetic atmosphere that will have the whole family buzzing.

The Main Event will include a line-up of our region’s favourite producers, foodies, breweries, wineries and makers. And on top of that we have an awesome live entertainment line-up and will be welcoming Matt Golinksi back to our shores to showcase one of our region’s favourite produce – oysters!!

If you attended our Tastings on Hastings festival over the weekend of 27 – 29 October, 2017, we’d love to get your feedback about your experience. Keep an eye out for our friendly volunteers who will be conducting these very quick surveys face-to-face.

Tastings on Hastings is the NSW North Coast’s premier food and wine festival drawing exhibitors and patrons from Greater Port Macquarie and surrounding regions and attracting visitors from regional NSW and Sydney.

This fantastic weekend event showcases our region’s farmers, artisans, food producers, wine growers, brewers, restaurants and cafés and attracts up to 20,000 people.

Born from the Hastings Farmers Markets, Tastings on Hastings’ core objective is to highlight and promote the farming, fresh produce, gourmet products, local artisans, wines, beers, chefs, restaurants and cafés of the local region.

In 2017, we celebrate 15 years of local culinary delight. Over the many years the event has grown to become one of the most recognised and patronised events on the regional calendar.

Tastings on Hastings is proudly owned and produced by Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.
