Orange FOOD WEEK

Fri 5 April - Sun 14 April

‘The Food Basket of NSW’ comes alive to showcase our finest fresh produce and cool climate wines.

Orange F.O.O.D Week is Australia’s longest running regional food festival and has been acclaimed as one of Australia’s top ten food festivals. The 10 day community festival, held from Friday 5 April to Sunday 14 April in 2024, celebrates the Orange region’s diverse and high quality food and wine. It showcases the farmers who grow it, as well as the local chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and caterers that create extraordinary dishes with it.

What started out as an idea dreamt up by a small group of passionate local foodies three decades ago to showcase the provenance and rich diversity of the Orange region’s produce and to celebrate its producers and vignerons, has blossomed into a festival of national standing.

F.O.O.D Week is committed to championing the provenance of the Orange region’s produce, celebrating  local heroes and positioning the region as one of Australia’s most aspirational culinary tourism destinations – where every week is food and wine week.

Festival Signature Events:

Friday 5 April: Night Market, Robertson Park

Saturday 6 April: Sampson Street Lunch

Sunday 7 – Friday 12 April (exl. 10 April): Shine the Light on Producers

Friday 12 April – Sunday 14 April: F.O.O.D Train
