The Taste of Tatura Food and Wine Festival provides an ideal opportunity for families to enjoy the day. The event is set down for March 3.
Tatura’s iconic Taste of Tatura Food and Wine Festival will go ahead this year, committee president Jock Richardson told Tatura Guardian last week.
The event, set down for March 3, was facing a gloomy future as reported by The Guardian in October last year, after a community plea was made by the committee.
Mr Richardson said at the time that unless more people were prepared to come on board to fill executive positions, the 2013 event and future events were in jeopardy. This followed a poorly attended annual general meeting.
‘‘If we do not fill these positions then we will not have an event,’’ he said in October.
The popular event has been running for 17 years and is not only one of Tatura’s major events but is also rated by Greater Shepparton City Council as one of the region’s major tourism events.
Taste of Tatura Festival is a celebration of food, wine and music, where residents and visitors have the opportunity to sample a delectable range of foods and enjoy the best regional wines in a serene atmosphere accompanied by the sounds of live music.
The annual event is a fantastic day that creates a great community atmosphere and showcases Tatura and the region’s fine array of food and wine. Children are well catered for with a variety of treats and activities to tempt and entertain.
