Seasonal, regional produce is on the menu for many an event during this year’s Jumpers and Jazz in July Festival.
The annual, Winter Dinner, will once again provide festival goers with an opportunity to taste and experience the Southern Downs with a regional feast in the historic Town Hall. The Queensland College of Wine Tourism and their head chef, Andrew Simpson, are set to deliver a celebration of the very best of our regional, seasonal foods complimented by local wines and beers. Diners will be entertained by the amazing talents of the Con Artists, an 18-piece Jazz ensemble from the Brisbane Conservatorium of Music.
SOURCED Southern Downs Flavours will feature at this year’s Warwick Credit Union Saturday Stroll ‘n’ Swing, providing Festival attendees with an opportunity to taste and take-home the food, wine and flavours sourced from the Southern Downs and Granite Belt Region. A collaborative partnership of The Wife Creative and the Southern Downs Region Council, Sourced has been created as a platform to share the bounty of produce from the region and promote the agritourism sector and the experiences associated. The relaxed café-style atmosphere, will give food fans an opportunity to shop, sit and savour the region’s produce whilst they watch the Festival pass by.
A festival favourite, Hot Pots, will once again warm the souls of all who attend with an opportunity to purchase hand-made pottery bowls, full of complimentary winter soups. And the live jazz by the Blue Violets will keep toes tapping.
New to this year’s program line-up is Party on Palmerin, a long lunch being offered by Brysons Place. Diners will take a seat at the long-table in Palmerin Street, amidst all the fun of the Warwick Credit Union Stroll n Swing on Saturday 30 July, and enjoy a 3 course meal and beverages.
And of course Warwick’s cafes, restaurants and local hotels will have menus full of winter-warmers to delight one and all.
