Anticipation is growing for the June long weekend when Central Coast Council hosts a unique event promoting the hidden gems in the valleys and mountains.
The inaugural Harvest Festival will celebrate local produce on the Coast, focusing on this unique region, its people and culture over the long weekend – Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 June.
Council Administrator, Mr Ian Reynolds, said the festival will be the first of its kind on the Central Coast.
“We received a lot of interest from our local producers wanting to show off their farms, produce and generally showcase what our picturesque valleys and mountains have to offer,” Mr Reynolds said.
“Our staff have been working hard with our local producers, to create a great program of events with a bit of something for everyone from open farms to long lunches, bush tucker walks, live music, fruit picking, workshops and much, much more.
“Festival-goers will be able to chat to local farmers, taste their produce and enjoy the sights and sounds of this unique aspect of the Central Coast.”
The festival will take place over the June long weekend, with events held across the Calga, Somersby, Peats Ridge, Mangrove Mountain, Kulnura and Yarramalong areas.
“The festival is a great way to help shine a spotlight on these areas and their importance as tourism and economic drivers for our region.
“The Coast is known for its beaches and waterways, but we are also surrounded by a hinterland full of hidden treasures – which will be the centre of attention in June.”
