Newcastle Food Month set to expand its footprint

Newcastle Food Month will return in April 2023 with plans unveiled to expand the event even further.

The third edition of the festival has been confirmed by organisers Newcastle Events and will again feature posh pop-up picnic Le Diner En Blanc.

“It has been our long-time dream to make Newcastle Food Month the leading regional food event in the country, and it’s with much excitement that we announce this, our third Food Month, putting us well on our way to realising that dream.” says organiser Louise Maher.

The program will include events for food lovers paired with wine, beer or gin, and music.

Venue options will range from hatted restaurants to cafes and pubs and French, Italian, Thai and seafood degustations.

The Roundhouse at Crystalbrook Kingsley, The Flotilla, Harrisons and The Signal Box will all host events during the festival.

Plate Date returns, with over 40 dining establishments offering a brunch, lunch or dinner, including a beverage for only $25.

Maher says: “It’s exciting to see so many early entries into the program, and we are well ahead of where we have been in previous years in planning. There is already something for everyone who likes eating out, and on any budget.

“Over the past two years we have enticed thousands of Novocastrians to dine out in our fabulous restaurants, and this will continue.

"We are committed to expanding our marketing and promotion into the Central Coast and Sydney to draw an increasing number of overnight visitors. In years to come we will turn our attention to the likes of Melbourne and Brisbane, to take advantage of our connections through Newcastle Airport.”

The program launch will take place on February 15. 2023 at which time the full month-long program will be available at
