NOTE: THIS EVENT IS IN THE PAST
SATURDAY 27TH AUGUST, 12PM TO 6PM
Set amongst lush green pastures, panoramic vistas of orchards and grazing country, Batlow is the final stop on the Winter Bites Festival event trail. This stunning township will celebrate the delicious local produce and beverages of their region along with an amazing music line-up, set to fill the winter air with beautiful tones.

After a successful first outing in Tumbarumba last winter, Winter Bites Festival continues in 2022 with rescheduled events set to go ahead in Adelong followed by Batlow. They’re all towns that were heavily impacted by bushfires during the summer of 2019-2020. The events are ticketed so make sure you grab yours, bring along your best beanie and get set for some delicious food and beverages and one incredible winter afternoon.
