After months of prep, we’re about ready to dish up a salivating menu of food drenched events for the entire month of April.

What’s all the fuss about? Newcastle Food Month (NFM) is 30 days of culinary worship featuring our local chefs, eateries and produce.  A homegrown scene that continues to grow from strength to strength in our backyard.

What’s on? More than 20 different events, 3 festivals and 1 major world renowned dining experience coming to Newcastle for the very first time. Fifty plus restaurants are also teaming up to give you, the people of Newcastle, a month of incredible dining experiences specifically designed for NFM.

Why are we doing it? Because we love food. And the City that is our home. We have an unwavering belief that food and dining is one of Newcastle’s greatest assets.

Our vision? In years to come we want Newcastle Food Month to become one of Australia’s most recognised regional foodie events.

A big shout out to the City of Newcastle who have helped us turn our concept into reality.

Here’s a taste of what’s to come;

Signature Event – April 10th – Put your Out of Office firmly on. This’ll be big. An event that has travelled around the world to Buenos Aires, Paris and New York is about to arrive in Newcastle.
