Taste Coleambally Food & Farm Festival 2022
The Taste Coleambally Food & Farm Festival is a vibrant biennial event held over three days on the last weekend of October. The festival aims to educate consumers about primary production and the importance of water and agriculture to the town and within Australia.
The local food and fibre industries are showcased through a range of events and visitors have the opportunity to meet with the producers and suppliers of services to ask questions.
See firsthand how sustainable and innovative farming practices have become over time and dismiss any common myths about the industry on one of the farm tours.
Art exhibitions display talent from local artists young and old using a variety of mediums and the 50-mile meal showcases local produce in a diverse way over a five-course degustation.
A colour run through the pine forest that surrounds Coleambally is always a hit with both locals and visitors providing lots of laughs.
Sunday is the main festival day where special guest, Zecca Handmade Italian, uses local produce in cooking demonstrations and judges the Coly Cook-off. Heritage displays, a biodiversity centre, educational producer stalls, local entertainers, billy cart races and market stalls line the main street.
