Food, Wine and Music

As parents, we're often searching for fun events to take the kids so we deserve to enjoy things that aren't tailored for the younger ones once in a while. The Food, Wine and Music Festival this coming Sunday is definately more for the grown ups - there are food stalls offering local produce and wine tasting.

We went a couple of years ago when the event was held at Belgenny Farm. This year the event is being held at a new venue, Belgenny Reserve in Camden. The event promised face painting and kids activities but if that isn't enough to keep them entertained, Belgenny Reserve is right next to the Camden cycleway so take the bikes and the kids can go for a ride. There's also a great little playground nearby. Once the kids are worn out from cycling and playing, pop your picnic blanket down on the reserve and enjoy some entertainment from cabaret showband, Family Von Trapp.

Make sure you take a full wallet and an empty stomach - you'll want to sample all the delicious food. If you're lucky enough to have them, take a couple of oldies along to keep an eye on the kids and your stuff while you browse the stalls.

The Food, Wine and Music Festival is on this weekend, Sunday the 21st of September from 10:30am to 3:30pm. The event is held as part of the Camden Festival, check-out the Camden council link to the left for more info.
