From north to south, east to west, experiences to savour.

A world of adventure awaits you this Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, with the chance to broaden your horizons and your palate. Whether it’s eating or drinking, cooking or dancing, classical tradition or the latest trends, the chefs and restaurateurs, drinks makers, producers, community organisations and party people of Melbourne in the Special Events program, presented by Square, have something for you. 

If you want deep dives into deliciousness, this program is going to rock your world. Go big with events dedicated to wild ales, bubble tea cheese, sake, lobster, tofu, rum, rare spirits, sucking pig, tacos, grappa, tomatoes, Greece and Turkey, Brazil and Japan, Sicily and Venice. We’ve got Martini parties, a pairing of falafel and funk, Japanese-Peruvian cuisine, Lao-Filipino feasting, a pizza and lambrusco throwdown, and a whisky festival at a bowling alley.
