Eat the Street serves up delicious fun for all ages

Wednesday, 05 February

 

If you love your food, art and music, then Lismore is the place to be on Saturday March 14 as the much loved Eat the Street festival returns for its sixth year with a new sponsor – NORCO.

“This year we are excited to announce that NORCO has come on board as the naming rights sponsor of the event,” Lismore City Council’s Acting City Centre Manager Nathan Dee said.

“NORCO is an iconic Lismore business and it is very fitting that they are now an integral part of the Northern Rivers premier food event,”

NORCO Chairman, Greg McNamara said this is a big year for the local dairy co-operative which is celebrating its 125th year of operation and was proud to support Eat the Street.

“Lismore has always been a big part of NORCO’s history and to now partner with an event that supports Lismore’s local food industry feels very natural,” he said.

Now in its sixth year, the event that runs from noon to 9pm, attracts ‘foodies’ and ‘culture’ buffs from far and wide and has become a highlight on the North Coast’s events calendar as a festival not to be missed.

Last year, the festival attracted more than 25,000 people and organisers are hoping for an even bigger crowd this year.

Mr Dee said the heart of the city will once again be closed to traffic and transformed into a sea of beautiful white marquees with over 50 fabulous food, wine, art & craft stalls.

Inspired by a world of street food styles, our local cafes and restaurants will showcase fresh regional cuisine proving fabulous tasting plates priced at $5 and $10. There are tempting treats from every corner of the globe, luscious libations from our region’s boutique beverage purveyors and stalls brimming with spectacular local product.

There will also be plenty of entertainment throughout the day with guest chefs cooking on stage and an entertainment stage with local musicians running throughout the event.

“Sit out on the street, under the trees, and try food from all over the Northern Rivers region, as well as handcrafted beer and gin, delicious desserts and so much more,” Mr Dee said.

“People love our Eat the Street food festival – it has become one of Lismore’s signature events.

Special ticketed events will be held in the lead up to March 14, such as the Farm Gate Tour, Progressive Dinner, Celebrity Chef Masterclass and more.
