Fifty food & drink vendors coming to TasteFest!

On Saturday 1 April

Lions Club Taree will host Tastefest on our beautiful Manning River Foreshore from 10am to 9pm. 

After a couple of rough years, including floods and a last minute change of location last year, TasteFest on the Manning is back in 2023 with a vengeance.

This year, the event will showcase nearly 50 food, wine, craft beer and spirit vendors, and other yummy gourmet offerings, as well as fabulous food from vendors out of town.  

We are really excited about a large range of new vendors who are joining us for the first time.

So come on down and tantalise your tastebuds with a great variety of different foods and drinks to try.  For a gold coin donation, we guarantee it’s the best value day out in the area.

TasteFest Entertainment – The 80’s Show

The Manning RiverStage will be buzzing all day with muso’s including popular local faves The Trapps and Matty Zarb.  

The headline act for Saturday evening is The 80’s Show which hails from Sydney.  

The greatest tribute to the greatest decade!  If you like Bon Jovi, ACDC, U2, INXS, Bryan Adams, then this is THE show for you!

So squeeze into your acid wash jeans, pull up your leg warmers, pack a picnic rug, grab your fave food and drink from one of the TasteFest vendors and sit back and bop away to all those fun 80 hits with your friends.  

The 80’s Show starts at 730pm so don’t miss it!

TasteFest Producers Dinner, Friday 31 March

The Producers Dinner was a huge success last year so we are doing it again, hosted in conjunction with Taree Quota Club.  

Chef Laurent will be master of the kitchen and his menu will highlight our wonderful Barrington Coast local produce.  

Tickets to this dinner sell quickly, so keep an eye on the TasteFest Facebook and Insta socials for further announcements.  Tickets are limited to just 80 and will be for sale via Eventbrite.

An event like TasteFest takes many many hands, but special thanks must also be made to our sponsors Mid Coast Council, Barrington Coast, Valley Industries, Ray White Manning Valley, JR Richards, National Australia Bank, Toby Uglow Painting, MaxFM, 2RE and Tinonee Bus Company.

We hope to see you on the 1st April for a terrific day of foodie fun!  (And let’s hope the weather gods are kind to us this year.)
