Catch the action at Hook and Vine

April 7, 2016 BY

LOCAL seafood specialists, winemakers, brewers, crafters and growers will gather at Torquay Common for the Sustainable Hook and Vine Festival on Saturday.
Delicious food will be the centrepiece of the day – including options for children and those who don’t like seafood – prepared by local chefs and restaurants in on-site, pop-up kitchens.
Varieties of wine, beer, cider, coffee and more will also be on hand to complement the available dishes, as well as an exciting line-up of performers. Local award-winning chef Matt Dempsey of Gladioli and Tulip restaurants is the festival’s ambassador for 2016 and will share his wealth of knowledge and experience in seeking local produce and the importance of sustainable practices.
Arrive early to see the live children’s entertainment on the main stage, followed by big-name local and interstate performers, ride the mechanical surfboard or slide down the giant inflatable shark. A sustainable marketplace will be open for perusal, with makers and shakers showing their sustainable wares and offering greener solutions for a wide range of products.
Don’t forget to bring a refillable water bottle (a Barwon Water Hydration Station will be on site), a picnic rug or camp chairs, and some warm layers.
The Sustainable Hook and Vine Festival is on Saturday April 9 at Torquay Common.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 concession, and free for children under 18. Pre-book tickets at trybooking.com/176090 to avoid queues.
Parking will be available at Spring Creek Reserve for a $2 donation to local charities.
