Food and wine fun

Food, beer and wine-lovers rejoice—City of Onkaparinga’s annual celebration of local food and wine is headed back to the west end of Beach Road, Christies Beach next month.

Beachside Food and Wine Festival is scheduled to return on Saturday 11 February (4–9pm), offering festivalgoers the chance to sample some of the region’s finest food, wine, beer and spirits as the sun sets at one of SA’s most beautiful beaches (see list of stallholders below).

Entry to the all-ages event—which will be held at Rotary Park, Grundy Terrace, Beach Road and the foreshore—is free, with children’s activities until sun-down, live music and cooking demonstrations accompanying the plentiful food stalls and bars on offer.

The event MC will be 'Jenna with the Pink' with live music from Funk Fusion and the Wildside.

For the safety of patrons, temporary traffic restrictions will be introduced around the event zone and surrounding areas. Disabled parking will be available at the northern end of The Esplanade.
