The Feast High Country Festival 2019 program launched today on feasthighcountry.com.au

This year’s region-wide salute to the High Country’s renowned food and drinks features 40 events that will celebrate  the region’s outstanding natural beauty as well as its talented growers, producers, makers, brewers and chefs.

Feast High Country Festival is in its seventh year in 2019, taking place around the region from Friday 3 to Sunday 19 May.

More than 8000 visitors are once again expected to attend Feast Festival events which this year include village bonfires, grand dinners and picnic lunches, classes, guided tastings, winery tours and walks and horse rides in the great outdoors.

Tourism North East has commenced some marketing activities in line with the program launch today, with remaining campaign activity ramping up late March following the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival. The Feast High Country Festival marketing campaign will be live across various digital channels targeting key consumer segments, as well as out of home, social media and email marketing.
