NOSH Events

“Nothing brings people together like good food”

Nosh Narrabri aims to showcase products produced by local growers, food creators and beverage makers. Nosh brings the community together to enjoy - and celebrate - the best produce from across the region.

Nosh in 2017 was made up of three big events over two days – Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 August – the Food and Wine Expo; the ‘Nosh On’ Night; and the Nosh Long Lunch.

On Saturday afternoon, the family-friendly Food and Wine Expo ran from 12pm to 5pm in the Nosh market square. The Expo featured a wide range of food and beverage exhibitors – from locally-produced fish and yabbies and organic fresh vegetables, to gourmet handmade cookies and pale ales. People sampled pickled cherries, snacked on a selection of macadamia and pecan nuts, and selected their favourite olive oil to take home. There was also live music, "The Cook-Off" competition (which was definitely a crowd favourite!), our home-brew and cheesecake competitions, and plenty of kids entertainment too. The Expo was open to all and free to attend: everyone could bring their friends and family!

Saturday night was the ‘Nosh On’ Night, which ran from 6:30pm until late. The market square was converted to a family-friendly concert space: people brought their chairs and picnic blanket and grabbed a space for a night of entertainment by local performers and major headliners, the iconic Aussie rockers Mental as Anything. General admission tickets were just $45, with a VIP experience available for $100. 

Sunday afternoon was the Nosh Long Lunch, where 300 diners were treated to a five-course French-themed long lunch in partnership with Relish Catering and NW Marquee & Events. Tickets sold out in less than 48 hours via our online ticketing system. 

Nosh is a family-friendly and easy-access event, suitable for all ages and abilities. Should you have an infirmity or disability that requires special assistance or access, please contact us prior to our event via [email protected] to discuss your specific needs.

The next Nosh Narrabri Food & Wine Festival will be held in late August, 2019.
