East Village Gourmet Food Festival - next weekend

We're a couple days away from the start of Good Food Month so I trust Sydney has its collective stomachs ready for a month of eating, drinking, and other food and drink related activities.

I'm looking forward to next weekend's East Village Gourmet Food Festival (which has also undergone a name change) in Zetland's Joynton Park, free all day on Saturday, 5 October 2013.

The festival aims to bring together the community from the surrounding south Sydney suburbs, and will feature live music, activities for kids and dogs (yes, a dog playground!), an all-day outdoor bar, a pop-up long dinner in the evening and of course, food stalls.

The festival's hours have been extended on last year's, starting from 11am all the way through to 10pm so that the local community can share a meal in a great outdoor setting till late.

The awesome guys at Salt Meats Cheese will run the bar with cocktails, wine and craft beer. They'll also have a food stall along with Longrain, Gelato Messina, Foley Lane, Veggie Patch Van, Allpress Espresso, Dan the Man Cooking, Colin's Butchery, Coco-go-nuts, East Ocean Restaurant, French Oven, The Rocks Brewing Co. and more - from morning, and all night long.

Get tickets to The Long Dinner under the stars by Longrain

For the East Village Gourmet Food Festival's evening feature dinner, The Long Dinner, modern Thai restaurant Longrain is returning to feed the masses, right in Joynton Park under the stars.

Longrain will be serving a shared banquet meal of their signature modern Thai dishes at long communal tables under a marquee for 200 guests.

Tickets to The Long Dinner are available here at $150 per person (including a cocktail on arrival, and red and white wines with dinner).

Food, Booze and Shoes readers can get $10 off the ticket price by entering the promo code UNDERTHESTARS.

I attended the dinner (and festival) last year and it was a superbly classy and highly memorable event despite the elements. With festival season here, there's plenty to look forward to next weekend, and for the entire next month of Good Food Month.
