Wandi Nut Festival
Wandi Nut Festival - Bright Autumn Festival
Saturday 29th April 2017
The Wandiligong Nut Festival celebrates our local growers, the end of harvest and the fabulous varieties of nuts and other fresh produce available in our cool climate during Autumn. The only nut festival of its kind in Australia!
The venue is Alpine Park, Wandiligong, nestled among heritage trees and gums with Morses Creek ﬂowing close by. Come and enjoy local stallholders, cooking demonstrations, roasted chestnuts, food and wine, music and games for children.
In April and May, walnuts, hazelnuts and chestnuts fall in orchards, backyards and along the lanes of Wandiligong. Heritage apples litter the grass verges and blackberries twine through the fences. Residents and visitors gather this windfall to create jams, pastes, soups, or simply to gorge. The Wandiligong Nut Festival is your opportunity to join us in celebrating the harvest.
Wandiligong is a small, semi-rural settlement of about 400 people located approximately 350 km north-east of Melbourne at the foot of the Victorian Alps. The festival, begun in 2001, was initially a low-key, local affair but has now grown to include a market, art, music, and food and wine events.
