Feast on locally sourced produce and culinary delights at Western Sydney Parklands

Western Sydney Parklands’ popular Food Fest kicks off again on September 8, bringing 50 stalls from the best of the Western Sydney food scene straight to the Lizard Log Amphitheatre.

The free event will feature cooking, food and gardening demonstrations, as well as an entertainment area for the kids. Grown-ups also get a bit of fun, with a local brewers’ marquee and live entertainment throughout the day.

‘Homegrown’ is this year’s theme, highlighting the cultural diversity of Western Sydney as well as an expanded produce market, sourced from the Parkland’s very own Urban Farm Precinct.

MasterChef judge and home-cook extraordinaire Matt Preston will headline the festival, showing off his skills with a live cooking demo for those hoping to grab a tip or two. Joining him are the Shahrouk sisters from Family Food Fight and Western Sydney’s famed butchers Joe Papandrea Quality Meats, among other local food heroes.
