About Nosh

Nosh Narrabri is a bi-annual food and beverage festival, held in Narrabri in the heart of north western NSW.

Nosh aims to showcase products produced by local growers, food creators and beverage makers: promoting sustainable food production, gathering our community together to celebrate the creativity and talent of others, and inspiring people to support local.

Nosh Narrabri is being held on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 August, on the banks of Narrabri Creek (the parklands behind the Crossing Theatre).

Three events make up Nosh Narrabri:

·      The Food and Wine Expo – Saturday, 12pm-5pm;

·      The ‘Nosh On’ Night – Saturday, 6:30pm-late, featuring iconic Aussie rockers Mental as Anything; and

·      The Nosh Long Lunch – Sunday 12pm-5pm.

The Food and Wine Expo is open to all, with free entry. Tickets are currently available for the ‘Nosh On’ Night: to purchase, click here. Tickets are now sold out for the Nosh Long Lunch.

Nosh Narrabri is a not-for-profit event, run by a committee of dedicated volunteers. All funds raised go towards future Nosh events, and supporting important local causes. In 2017, surplus funds raised will be distributed to local charities, including Youth Shack and Shared Table, to help support local youth, and provide food to those in need.

History

Nosh Narrabri began as Nosh on the Namoi in 2003, as a small festival to showcase goods from local producers of fine food and wine. The inaugural festival had 27 stallholders presenting products as diverse as olives, ice cream, wine, crayfish, smoked trout, beef, herbal tea, locally produced pasta, preserves, chicken, oysters, preserves, condiments, caterers and restaurants.

The 2003 event launched the products of Tall Poppy (condiments and processed local produce) and Bellata Gold (Durum pasta), both of which went on to great success, being stocked in many regional and metropolitan outlets including David Jones. 

The response to the inaugural event was overwhelmingly positive and Nosh on the Namoi was set to become a regular event for the Narrabri region. Over the past 14 years, thousands of locals and visitors have attended Nosh, which continues to showcase products produced by local growers, food creators and beverage makers.

In 2017, a new committee revamped Nosh on the Namoi into Nosh Narrabri, with the overarching aims of promoting sustainable food production, gathering the community together to celebrate the creativity and talent of others, and inspiring people to support local.

Nosh Narrabri remains a not-for-profit event, run by a committee of dedicated volunteers. All funds raised go towards future Nosh events, and supporting important local causes. In 2017, surplus funds raised will be distributed to local charities, including Youth Shack and Shared Table, to help support local youth, and provide food to those in need.
