2015 Sunshine Coast Real Food Festival

For lovers of good food, who want to know how to nourish themselves and their family, the Real Food Festival is a joyful annual event that brings together all elements of Sunshine Coast food in a weekend of learning and celebration.
With demonstrations, conversations, workshops, exhibits and hands-on activities, the Festival has something for everyone. We’ve got entertainment throughout the weekend with some brilliant street performers, and a reusable show bag full of deals and offers.
Don't forget to enter the major prize competition for a luxury package worth more than $1,500, which includes accommodation and meals at either of two multi-award-winning Spicers properties: Clovelly Estate in Montville, and Tamarind Retreat in Maleny.
