Lake Macquarie's outdoor dining event, ‘Feast for the Senses’, is back in 2023!
The annual outdoor dining experience is back in 2023 as a part of Lake Macquarie Living Smart Festival – one of Australia's largest sustainability events.
Relax, dine, and dance under the stars at the event with all of the taste with none of the waste.
This year, Feast for the Senses has joined forces with Oz Harvest to bring you a feast that will leave you with full bellies and full hearts.
Lake Macquarie City Council Manager Arts, Culture and Tourism Jacqui Hemsley said the partnership with OzHarvest aligned perfectly with this year’s ‘War on Waste’ festival theme.
“There is a firm focus with this event on nothing going to waste,” she said.
Featuring a unique menu, with all of the food prepared by OzHarvest chefs using only sustainably sourced ingredients. The menu features vegetarian options to help protect our planet and any leftovers are packaged at the end of the event and redistributed to people in need. Nothing goes to waste!
Adding to the experience is live music and entertainment to enjoy from the incredible Hot Potato Band. So grab your loved ones and experience an unforgettable night together under the stars!
