    The inaugural five-day celebration features a program of curated events to celebrate the region’s local produce and those who bring it to life. Partake in creations from passionate chefs, talented distillers, brewers and baristas, cheesemakers and farmers, and artisan producers.

    Savour The Tweed will have a program of 20 distinctive events featuring local and visiting chefs with highlights including a First Nations welcome dinner and native food foraging, farm to fork menus and wild-caught seafood lunch, plus events showcasing healthy and sustainable food practices and ethical farming.

    The program is co-curated by Tweed-based chef and author, Christine Manfield, and local food advocate Amy Colli of Straight to the Source. It highlights the diversity and prominence of The Tweed as one of Australia’s leading food and drink destinations with farm tours, distillery and brewery masterclasses, long table lunches, storytelling, cooking classes, and local degustations.

    Savour The Tweed will be a signature regional event, created from the ground up, and I’m so excited to be collaborating with The Tweed’s impressive line-up of food and drink producers, leading chefs and cultural storytellers to celebrate the distinctive flavours and character of the region and to offer a program of immersive experiences,” Manfield said.

    “The Tweed’s growing profile as one of Australia’s leading culinary destinations is testament to the creative vision and hard work of the region’s chefs, restaurateurs, growers, distillers, brewers, food producers and First Nations talent who will all feature throughout the event program.”

    General manager of The Tweed Tourism Company, Sally Scott, adds: “As a five-day event, Savour The Tweed is the perfect long-weekend getaway for foodies who also want to experience the Tweed’s holiday highlights including the Tweed Regional Gallery and Northern Rivers Rail Trail in the hinterland to surf lessons and snorkelling with turtles from our seaside villages.”

    Mayor of Tweed Shire, Chris Cherry, said the event would provide the perfect opportunity to celebrate the Tweed’s incredible fresh food offering.

    Savour the Tweed is a key investment by Council to host a signature event that showcases our region and highlights our culinary strengths,” she said.

    “At Council we have aimed to carefully nurture the Tweed’s burgeoning agritourism sector over many years, culminating in what promises to be a fantastic food event in Savour The Tweed.

    “Events make the Tweed a great place to live and visit and we are proud to deliver Savour The Tweed with our event partners. This exciting new offering is part of our new Tweed Events Strategy which will be on public exhibition in coming weeks.”
