With over 140 events, you will be overwhelmed with options. Pirate Life is hosting a Beer Sensory Masterclass, the Autumn Harvest Feast which boasts a 3-course lunch, Mayura Station Rare Cuts featuring world-class wagyu for those meat lovers, or for those who aren’t there’s Seed & Soil which is all about plant-based cooking. But the event we’re most excited for – The Festival of Sausage In Bread, which of course, is all about the humble snag.
