Northern Rivers Regional Food Celebration, Lismore 2010

The Northern Rivers is a place where food loves to grow and people love to grow it. Food based ecotourism and agritourism is destined to grow based on the region’s sustainability commitment and the spiritual connection to nature which lends itself to visitor experiences.


Over three days at the Northern Rivers Regional Food Celebration, visitors can enjoy local produce, meet the growers and producers, and discover the extraordinary biodiversity of the region.

The Food Celebration will have a theme of’ local’ for each day of the event designed around the matching local produce. The menus will be designed to be affordable and accessible for show visitor and shared at convivial communal tables with opportunity to learn more about the region.

The message will be to support and celebrate local food and to celebrate the seasonality.

The Food Celebration will also feature demonstrations by local chefs from some of the region’s highly regarded restaurants and schools will participate in a cooking competition, with young chefs cooking exclusively with local produce.

Held in Lismore from October 21 – 23.
