Taste Riverina Food Festival

In 2012, RDA-Riverina collaborated with a broad range of community groups to see the region’s inaugural Taste Riverina Festival roll out over a month-long calendar of events.

From 100 mile meals, celebrity chefs, wine events, food classes, food treks, agriculture tours and community garden programs, the event brought together all sectors of the communities across the Riverina and provided a great source of pride and excitement.

Events such as the Taste Riverina Food Festival have helped showcase the region’s leading industry – agriculture – and have contributed to a number of key priorities for the Riverina, namely youth leadership, skill and workforce development, and promotion of the region.

“From the ‘paddock to the plate’ there is much to celebrate in our region and the Taste Riverina Food Festival provided the opportunity to reinvigorate local perceptions and allowed the Riverina to increase awareness of the exciting nature of our leading industry, educating people regarding the key importance of the growing food and fibre industry to not only our region but also the nation as a whole,” Tom Watson, RDA-Riverina Chairman.
