Time Out says
Treat yourself to great food, wine and music in scenic Mornington
UPDATE 28/03/2020: The Peninsula Picnic has been cancelled following government bans on events following the COVID-19 outbreak. Guests can hold onto their ticket which will be valid for next year's event or receive a refund via the website.
Roll out your picnic rug, and don't bother with the food: The Peninsula Picnic is back. On Saturday, March 28, Mornington Racecourse will be transformed as the region's biggest food, wine and music event brings the Mornington Peninsula's restaurants, wineries and producers together.
Music at the 2020 Peninsula Picnic will be led by ex Powderfinger frontman Bernard Fanning. Joining Fanning will be newcomers from Sydney Caravãna Sun and Hollow Caves as well as Melbourne musos the Meltdown and the Fremantle-based duo Mama Kin Spender.
Make the most of the country harvest atmosphere and see what the local chefs, restaurants and wineries have brought along with them by way of nibbles and tipples. Some of the region's best producers, including Jackalope’s Rare Hare, Montalto, Green Olive at Red Hill and Tuck’s Ridge, will set up shop. There will be wines from Prancing Horse, Willow Creek Winery and Ten Minutes by Tractor, which is making its Peninsula Picnic debut. Not into wine? Gordon's Pink Gin Bar and St Andrews Beach Brewery will also be in attendance serving gin cocktails and craft beers.
Pack a few shopping bags before you go, as there will be a marketplace selling fresh local produce, wines, and homemade and artisan wares. The Peninsula Picnic is a family-friendly event. Tickets on sale now.
