Newcastle Food Month returns bigger than ever

Over three difficult years, Newcastle Food Month has become a major success story. And with travel now back to normal, the event will return in April, 2024, for its fourth edition.

The food festival will again feature the posh pop-up picnic Le Diner En Blanc Newcastle (above) with more than 1,000 guests again expected to frock up for the 2024 event to be held in a secret location on April 6.

The month-long program will kick off on the weekend of Easter 2024 and takes in the New South Wales school holidays as well as the Anzac Day break at the end of the month.

Among the highlights will be those that feature wine, beer, gin, whisky, cocktails, music and cheese.

Festival goers will be able to dine in hatted restaurants and enjoy degustations with French, Italian, Thai, seafood and cocktail themes.

Roundhouse at Crystalbrook Kingsley, The Flotilla and its new offshoot Vecina, Humbug, Harrisons, Jana, The Elementa, Foghorn Brewery and Modus will all be hosting events.

Plate Date also returns, with an anticipated 50 dining establishments offering a brunch, lunch or dinner, including a beverage for only $30.

“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," says organiser Louise Maher. "There is already something for everyone who likes eating out, and on any budget.”

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

"Last year more than 80 businesses were involved in Newcastle Food Month and that’s a stat we are really proud of, keeping our economy focused on the great hospitality the region is known for.

"We are also 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 7. Keep an eye on
