Eat the Street serves up delicious family fun

Thursday, 08 March

Eat the Street 2018 is on in the Lismore CBD this Saturday, 10 March!

Lismore’s annual celebration of street food won a silver gong at the NSW Tourism Awards last year and 2018 promises to be bigger than ever with more stalls, celebrity chefs and activities for all ages.

Former My Kitchen Rules and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Ash Pollard will MC the cooking stage and show off her culinary prowess while international Italian master chef Luca Ciano will hold two masterclasses throughout the day and share his kitchen secrets in a live cooking demonstration.

There are also kids cooking classes, live music and entertainment, smoothie bikes where you can pedal power your own smoothie, and of course a smorgasbord of food, drinks and fresh local products and produce to keep you tasting all day.

“The great thing about Eat the Street is it will go ahead rain, hail or shine – so bring the family and enjoy our annual street food festival,” City Centre Manager Jason Mumford said.

“Eat the Street just gets bigger and better every year and of course we are always refining the event to make it a better experience for food lovers. 2018 will definitely be the best year yet, and we are so excited to have Ash Pollard and Luca Ciano joining the fun!”
