Event description
Gather & Graze with us to see off 2020! Enjoy South Australia's best cheese, food and beverages in a COVID-safe environment!

About this Event


Presented by CheeseFest Australia

We are thrilled to announce Gather & Graze, our new food, beverage and art festival for 2020!

Given the current COVID restrictions, and how they would affect everyone, instead of canceling CheeseFest&Ferment 2020, we put our heads together to create a scaled down version that brings everything that CheeseFest&Ferment has to offer (and even a little bit more)

It will be different, but special.

Gather & Graze!

We wanted to create a safe space where South Australians could access all the delicious delicacies that we have been missing this year. That means you will still have the most amazing selection of South Australian producers of cheese, food, beverages, and fermented goods.

The demo stage will be out in full force! We have a stacked line up of presenters (more on that soon!), plus you can live stream the demos straight to your phone on Facebook or Instagram!

Not to mention, free live music and inspiring artwork from local artists!

Plus, you will receive a free Reidel Glass and eco-friendly carry bag on arrival (you make keep these and take them home!)

You will also receive a token for one FREE glass of wine from Coriole Vineyards, our Wine Sponsor

Because of the scaled down nature of the festival, our COVID regulations are not as strict, however we do require you to read our COVID guidelines below and familiarise yourself with them, as they will be enforced strictly to keep you, your fellow attendees, our staff, stallholders, and the wider community safe.

What can you expect from Gather & Graze?

Australia's most amazing cheesemakers

South Australia's finest winemakers

Australia's most innovative food producers

Our local award-winning brewers and distillers 

Gather & Graze is your opportunity eat, drink, laugh and be merry! All in a safe space, with everything you want within reach. Whether you're a die hard foodie, a craft beer fanatic, a home fermenter, Australia's top wino or you simply want to enjoy the live music with your friends and family, Gather & Graze is what we have all been waiting for.
