Get a taste of Bright n Sandy

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Sensational food, cool drinks, great music and the best view in Bayside - there’s so many reasons to enjoy Bright n Sandy Food and Wine Festival on Sunday 25 February 2018.

Join us at Green Point, Brighton foreshore from 11am to 7pm.

There’s delicious fare to suit every taste. From Asian street food to Portarlington mussels served French style, delicious Greek tasting plates and classic American BBQ.

Cool down with locally brewed beer, boutique wine or a refreshing cold pressed juice.

With more than 50 stalls, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Learn cooking tips and techniques from some of Melbourne’s top chefs at the Pantry Presents Demonstration Stage.  Featuring Helenic Republic’s Alex Xinis, the European Group’s Ian Curley, Adam D’Sylva from Coda and Daniel Wilson from Huxtaburger, the demonstration stage will provide inspiration for cooking up a storm at home.

Need a break from eating and drinking? Peruse the artisan market for handmade homewares, jewellery, condiments and gourmet delights.

Or groove to the smooth sounds of the talented performers on the entertainment stage. Music and entertainment is a big part of Bright n Sandy, with a beat for everyone including Folk, Soul, Latin and Jazz.

And for the kids, there’s children’s rides, cooking classes, face painting, arts and crafts and much more.

Check out the full entertainment and cooking demonstration program here.
