October is fast approaching and two feasts or events that tourists can enjoy are stated below:
Good Food Month
Now, this has to be the most exciting food festival one can go to. Why? It is because it is the biggest food festival in the world that is why. It happens for one whole month in all of Sydney! This festival represents all types of dining from fine-dining dinners to family lunches and all types of street food eating. It does not really matter if you are a chef, a regular diner, a food critic or just a plain old Joe. What is important is that you bring your appetite to the city during the month of October and just enjoy munching on the best flavors Sydney and the world has to offer.
The Good Food Month Festival is the Australians of Sydney’s way of welcoming spring. Tourists and foodies go to this city and participate in more than 500 food events that the festival offers annually. It all started in 2008 when it was still known as the Crave Sydney International Food Festival. The very first weekend of the festival opens with an event called The World Chef Showcase. It gathers some of the best Chefs from all over the planet to facilitate cooking demonstrations with food tastings.
Some of the most sought after segments of the event are the Breakfast on Bondi wherein foodies from all over the world can enjoy the sunrise along Bondi beach’s shores while enjoying filling breakfast food. Then there is the Night Noodle Market, which is held on the grounds of Hyde Park. The park is transformed into an Asian street food market that caters to noodle and dimsum lovers.
This year, Good Food Month will happen starting on a Thursday, Oct 1 until Saturday Oct. 31.
Sydney Rides Festival
