The Northern Rivers Food Harvest Festival is all about connecting people with real food on real farms. The Festival provides locals and visitors with an opportunity to sample fresh and beautifully prepared food by renowned local chefs, hear how it is grown and pay homage to our much loved local food producers!

In 2019 we’re excited to be expanding the Northern Rivers Food Harvest Festival to a 12 day celebration – with an Opening Event at the soon-to-be opened Husk Distillers at North Tumbulgum, our inaugural Harvest Autumn Fair at the North Byron Parklands and the return of our Harvest Trail.

Between these key events, Northern Rivers Food members will be showcasing a series of local food tours, dinners and food experiences, from paddock to plate and seed to flower!


Highlights of the 2019 Harvest Festival include:

Behind the Scenes

The Harvest Festival is operated by Northern Rivers Food, a not for profit, industry body run by the people who are putting their heart and soul into marketing and developing food businesses from Grafton to Tweed. The Harvest Festival is the key fundraiser of Northern Rivers Food each year, all proceeds are directed back into NRF to be used to help promote and market the Northern Rivers food industry.

NRF have a whole team of volunteers behind the scenes who take time out of their own business to bring the Harvest Festival to life each year. View our Harvest committee here.
