Tasting Australia festival called off


The Tasting Australia gourmet festival has been postponed in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The South Australian Tourism Commission has made the decision to push back the annual event, scheduled to comprise more than 140 events, which was set to be held from March 27-April 5.

Organisers of the wine and food celebration have announced they are working towards a revised date in October or November.

The decision follows Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s announcement that non-essential mass gatherings of more than 500 people would be cancelled from Monday.

“The decision also follows concerns that a number of our international and national talent were assessing their ability to participate in the festival at this time, and some had already indicated they were unable to travel,” festival director Simon Bryant and Events South Australia executive director Hitaf Rasheed said in a statement.


“We are planning to reschedule Tasting Australia for spring 2020. We will look to finalise those plans within the next week and share them publicly as well as directly to all ticket holders and event stakeholders.”


All ticket holders will have the opportunity to transfer the date of their tickets or receive a refund.
