Kyabram is set to host the first ever ‘Beneath the Gums’ Food, Beer and Wine Festival.

The festival, organised by local charity foundation The Gift and Kyabram Football Netball Club, is due to take place next month.

A wide range of local food and wine stalls will participate with beer, wine, cider, pizza, indian, gourmet potato cakes and spring rolls, vegetarian and gluten free risotto, gelati, soft serve ice cream, strawberries and cream, cheese, biscuits and a barbecue.

There will also be live music with Kyabram-born Jayne Lilford, Darrelle Bassett and Jess and Aaron DeLuca playing alongside well known singer Tayler Hocking.

Ms Lilford is best known for reaching the top 10 in 2012’s X Factor competition and all performers are playing for free.


The festival will be on the same weekend as the annual Poker Run event and the Vintage Engine Rally.

Event organiser and The Gift chairwoman Liz Dillon said she was confident the festival would fit in.

‘‘A lot of people are in town and a lot of people get to the Sunday and think ‘oh, we have nothing to do’ so we thought this event would back it up perfectly,’’ Ms Dillon said.

‘‘It’s going to be a very busy weekend for Kyabram and there will be a lot of people in town, so now they have a wide choice of what they want to do.’’

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to The Gift and the Kyabram Football Netball Club.

The Gift is a not-for-profit organisation that raises money to help people within the Kyabram district who suffer from cancer.

The organisation has raised about $150000 per year since forming.


The festival will be on March 16 at Kyabram Recreation Reserve, Unwin St.

Tickets cost $25 per person, under-18s are $5 (with a legal guardian present) and under 12’s are free. Shuttle bus tickets are $10 and will run between Rochester, Tatura, Mooroopna and Echuca. Times will be made available closer to the date.
