Submissions now open for Good Food Month!

Sydney and NSW regions: return of a much-loved event in October. Melbourne and Victorian regions: first-ever Good Food Month in November.

Restaurants, bars, food businesses and artisan food producers are invited to join what’s destined to become Australia’s biggest food festival family, with the relaunch of The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Month and the launch of The Age Good Food Month, both presented by Citi.

Good Food Month will highlight the incredible creativity, diversity, quality and innovation of each city’s metropolitan and regional food scene with signature events such as the iconic outdoor Night Noodle Markets, the Shoot the Chef culinary photographic competition and restaurant-based offers such as Let’s Do Lunch and the quirky Hats Off Dinners.

Participating venues will also create pop-ups and parties, kitchen garden tours and high teas, cooking classes, food forums and much much more.

In Sydney, Good Food Month makes a triumphant return after four years of operating as Crave Sydney International Food Festival. (Good Food Month in Sydney was first launched in 1998, making it 15 years old this year.)

“There are those who never stopped calling it Good Food Month which goes to show the affection for the name. Now Good Food is going national so this move reflects that,” said  festival director Joanna Savill.

With almost one million people attending last year’s month-long festival in Sydney, Savill anticipates Melbourne will embrace Good Food Month with equal gusto.

The Age Good Food Month will be strongly connected to The Age’s must-read Epicure section and in Sydney, to Good Food in The Sydney Morning Herald, as well as The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guides and goodfood.com.au, Fairfax Media’s fast-growing online food and wine destination.

To be part of one – or both! – of these exciting and vibrant celebrations of our dynamic restaurant and hospitality industry, please email goodfoodmonth@fairfaxmedia.com.au  to register your interest. Event submissions are now open via goodfoodmonth.com
