February date for 150km feast

Horsham Agricultural Society leaders have announced a date for the organisation’s inaugural 150km Feast, designed to reinvigorate the region’s events culture amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The society has pencilled in February 20, 2021, for the 150-themed under-the-stars outdoor dining and entertainment experience.

The feast, at Horsham Showground’s Maydale Reserve, will involve catering for 150 patrons, a 150-minute free drinks package and 150 metres of free camping. 

Society executive administrator Andrea Cross said she was confident if government restrictions continued to be lifted, the organisation could present a COVID-safe event.

She said the feast would be ‘a harvest festival like no other, celebrating good food, good wine and good people’.

“This community collaborative event will provide you a feast to indulge in some of the Wimmera and Grampians’ finest seasonal produce with a selection of ingredients sourced from within 150 kilometres of Horsham,” she said.

“Dine in our back paddock overlooking the river, under a canopy of stars in our unique hay-bale-styled dining room. Imagine a rustic setting of timber-topped tables in pods of 10, laid out in a deconstructed fashion adhering to a COVID-safe plan.”

Tickets at $150 will go on sale on November 12.
