Narrabri's food and wine festival, Nosh Narrabri, is returning in 2019 andlocals and travellers to NSW's north-west are invited to attend.
Showcasing the best in food, beverages and produce from across the region, Nosh is being held on Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1, with three big events over the two days.
The main Nosh event, the Food and Wine Expo, will be held from midday on Saturday at the parklands behind the Crossing Theatre, on the banks of Narrabri Creek.
Exhibitors will once again showcase food and beverages from across the region, and the creators who grow or make them.
"Nosh Narrabri showcases products by local growers, food creators and beverage makers: promoting sustainable food production, gathering the community together to celebrate the creativity and talent of others, and inspiring people to support local," president Darrell Tiemens said.
"Nosh is a not-for-profit event, run by a committee of dedicated volunteers - all of whom have a passion for Narrabri, regionally-produced products, and food and wine.
"Entry to the Nosh Expo will once again be free and open to all, so be sure to save the date, and most importantly, let your family and friends know!"
Following the expo, the 'Nosh On' Night will kick off in the evening, featuring entertainment and fireworks. The following day, the iconic Nosh Long Lunch will once again take place, with tickets to go on sale in the coming months.
Nosh Narrabri is proudly supported by the NSW Government, as part of its Regional Flagship Events Program.
The program is managed by the state's tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, and provides grants to events in regional NSW to support marketing activities aimed at driving overnight visitation and boosting local economies.
"This is a major coup for Nosh and secures it as a pinnacle event on the regional tourism events calendar," Barwon MP Kevin Humphries said.
"Events like Nosh play a cricital role for tourism in regional NSW.
"Nosh is a great community event, and its particularly important for the Narrabri community during times of drought.
"It provides an opportunity to us to get together to celebrate the local community, while showcasing our region and our products to visitors and providing a much-needed boost to local businesses and the economy.
"We look forward to welcoming visitors to Narrabri for another very successful event"
