Canberra Rejoice! The Forage is back in 2019

First established in 2014, ‘The Forage’ returns in 2019 having finally found a new home in Fyshwick.

Canberra’s only dedicated food festival, ‘The Forage’, showcases a wide range of local food products from cafés, wineries, breweries and food trucks. Accompanied by a wide variety of entertainment, the return of ‘The Forage’ in 2019 is the sign of a thriving foodie community in the ACT.

Hosting thousands of people throughout the day, ‘The Forage’ aims to give businesses, both new and accustomed, the opportunity to showcase their very best to the community in a festival-like environment.

‘The Forage’ brings some of Australia’s most unique food and drink to the nation’s capital, such as the Sydney ice cream truck “Pimp My Chimney” and their exotic take on ice cream, opening the Canberra foodie community up to things that may otherwise only be available in places like Melbourne and Sydney.

‘The Forage’ has stated that it’s primary commitment is to vendors as they state that their vision is to give the Canberra community an opportunity to sample what is available in the city and abroad, looking to provide a platform for vendors to reach a new audience which then aims to feed back into local businesses.

Canberra based brewery Capital Brewing are set to return with their range of unique beers flowing through the festival, with their actual brewery site now being housed right next door to the festival.

Located within the one area, ‘The Forage’ has outgrown its former venue at the Little National Hotel in Barton, with the triannual event having recently relocated to a new home at the Dairy Road Precinct in Fyshwick.

Occurring on April 6th, June 29th and October 19th, the festival is set for its biggest year to date with last years crowd estimates totalling over 8000 Attendees.

The new home on Dairy Road boasts a significantly larger space which should see the festival reach new heights in 2019.
