The 2020 Melbourne Food & Wine Festival has more free and accessible events than ever, but there’s one night that even money can’t buy a ticket for – and that’s the opening party at the Queen Victoria Market. But you can be there

We’re giving our newsletter subscribers the chance to win a ticket to the most exclusive event on the food calendar, the opening party on Thursday 19 March.

It’s your opportunity to join the best chefs in Australia at the launch of the 2020 festival, along with the festival’s international guests.

With a suckling pig feast by Melbourne’s master of the art, La Luna Bistro’s Adrian Richardson, plus drinks, chat and chef sightings ahoy, it’s the perfect start to Australia’s best-loved food festival.

And it’s not just you, either, but you and your whole crew. This prize gets tickets for you plus five of your pals – or the whole family.

Plus we’re throwing in six tickets to the sell-out event that’s been happening every year since the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival began, the Bank of Melbourne World’s Longest Lunch, happening on Friday 20 March at Treasury Gardens.
