The 18th annual Taste of Tatura Food and Wine Festival will be held at Mactier Memorial Gardens on Sunday, March 3 from 11
Held in the heart of Tatura, the festival is a celebration of the food, wine and entertainment the region has to offer.
Committee spokesperson and sponsorship co-ordinator Paris Room-Batters said the festival was a not-for-profit event made possible by the support of local businesses and community members, in particular, prominent employer and naming sponsor Unilever.
She said the festival would not be possible without the support of local businesses and this year there had been significant support from Greater Shepparton City Council, Tatura Milk, Dawes and Vary, URS, SKM, Rodney Printers, Tatura Engineering, Valley Funerals, Tatura Hot Bread and Hilltop Golf and Country Club.
Mrs Room-Batters said the committee had been impressed with the level of support from local businesses.
‘‘With only a month till the event, there is still plenty of time for more businesses to sponsor the event,’’ she said.
‘‘This year, along with our champagne, chardonnay and shiraz packages, we are also offering businesses the opportunity to donate goods or services to be offered as door prizes and raffles.
‘‘More than 1500 locals and visitors are expected to attend this year’s Taste of Tatura Food and Wine Festival; sponsoring the event is a great way for companies to promote their businesses among the community.’’
