Fun: Kate Sadler, Hayley Walker, George Hood, Jess Edwards, Danielle Amos, Alex Neale, Stacey Day and Georgie Shortt enjoy the 2016 Taste.Naracoorte’s “Taste the Limestone Coast Festival” will be up against some strong competition next February, with a major music festival being held in Mount Gambier on the Saturday festival day!
However, the Naracoorte Lions organising committee believes that “Taste 2017” has a great deal to offer patrons and at far less expense than the Mount Gambier event. Entry for Taste remain the same at $10 per adult, with less for youth and concessions, against around $100 for the other event.
Local Taste patrons will still receive almost eight hours of music and the chance to try food and wines from around 25 different outlets, while relaxing in the shaded lawn areas of the Naracoorte Town Squares!
The other components of the extensive Taste Festival are all in place, so starting with the Travel Expo on Thursday February 9, through to the race meeting on Sunday February 12, all of the favourite activities will again be on offer!
As in previous festivals, Lions try to celebrate the high quality of local produce as well as bringing in new tastes to the region.This year, three new providers will join the Taste family: Oparina Wines from Padthaway, The Cide Project from Kalangadoo and Coffin Bay Oyster Events from the West Coast of SA.
Negotiations are still underway with a few more specialist food providers, so there may be more to announce in the near future! A list of all providers, sponsors, supporters, and entertainers will be published early in the New Year.
Taste will be once again supported by a major Taste Travel Raffle, this time sponsored by helloWorld Travel and the Spirit of Tasmania. First prize will be a trip on the magnificent “Spirit of Tasmania” from Port Melbourne to Devonport and accommodation in Tasmania .
Lions hope to continue to make this a family friendly festival, so as well as the regular children’s tent for the younger children, this year there will be a travelling magician who will move around the festival area providing entertainment for young and old!
Taste Festival profits will be donated to the Naracoorte Hospital Maternity Unit and other community projects.
