Melb Food Fests and Events Final


Melbourne’s food festivals and events have exploded in recent times due to our thriving coffee and food culture. Cafés open (and sometimes close) at a rate too hard to keep up with. There are endless food crazes – first macarons/macaroons, then cronuts, smashed avo (not disappearing anytime soon), anything and everything with Nutella, and so on. So, it’s safe to say that if you’re a foodie living in Australia, Melbourne is the city for you. With a growing number of food festivals and events sprouting from Melbourne’s obsession with food, I’ve filtered a list of some of the best for you.

This list will be updated regularly, however if there is a Melbourne food festival or event that I’ve missed or should add, please feel free to get in touch at:

Buon Appetito!
