Not held since the 2009 bushfires, the State Government has contributed a $30,000 grant to support the return of this popular event.
The Grape Grazing Festival was first held in 1988 and ran over one day. Due to the success of the event it was extended in the late 1990s to run over two days, and was attracting over 20,000 visitors annually to the region.
The festival will return to the Yarra Valley in 2014 in a refreshed format, extending the event from two to three days, and showcasing the region's many food producers, restaurants, cider, beer and ale producers, accommodation providers, and of course their celebrated network of wineries.
With more than 60 events planned to run over the three days of the festival, there is surely something to interest everyone. The festival will be held from 14 to 16 February. For more information please visit the festival's website.
