The inaugural Harvest Festival is set to celebrate local produce on the Coast, focusing on the unique region, its people and culture over the June long weekend.
Mr Ian Reynolds, Council Administrator, said that the festival will be the first of its kind for the Central Coast.
“We received a lot of interest from our local producers wanting to show off their farms, produce and generally showcase what our picturesque valleys and mountains have to offer,” he said.
“Our staff have been working hard with local producers to create a great program of events with a bit of something for everyone, from open farms to long lunches, bush tucker walks, live music, fruit picking and much more.”
The festival will take place over the June long weekend, with events being held across the Calga, Somersby, Peats Ridge, Mangrove Mountain, Kulnura and Yarramalong areas.
“The Festival is a great way to help shine a spotlight on these areas and their importance as tourism and economic drivers for our region,” Mr Reynolds said.
“The Coast is known for its beaches and waterways, but we are also surrounded by a hinterland full of hidden treasures which will be the centre of attention in June.”
