What is Newcastle Food Month and what can you expect

In November 2020 we announced that a brand new event was on its way in 2021. Not able to give too much away at the time, we are now excited to be able to share with you what you can expect from Newcastle Food Month.

So what is Newcastle Food Month? 

It’s all about the city of Newcastle and the food scene that continues to go from strength to strength. 

Organisers, Newcastle Events have spent the last six months working on the full concept, that being a high quality program of events that you can eat your way through celebrating Newcastle's fabulous food scene. 

Interested to know how the idea for Newcastle Food Month came about we spoke to organiser Louise Maher to get some more details.

Louise explained, "Firstly we're doing this because we love the City that is our home, and have a great belief in food and dining out as one of Newcastle’s greatest assets.
"In years to come we want Newcastle Food Month to become one of Australia’s most recognised regional foodie events.”

But what can you expect exactly when April 1st rolls around you ask?
