The stage is set for next Friday’s annual Twilight Tastings at Wauchope Showground, with a record number of exhibitors and family-friendly entertainment.

Organisers of the hugely-popular event say the list of food, beverage and market displays continues to grow beyond expectations, with the line-up featuring producers from near and far.

“The overwhelming success of last year’s event cemented it on the Wauchope calendar and this year we’ve added new entertainment and attractions for all ages,” Hastings Co-op’s liquor division manager Lisa Attkins said.

“It’s all about celebrating beer, wine, spirits and food in a relaxed environment where suppliers can share their products and locals can try something new.

“It’s also a great opportunity for people to talk with producers and suppliers, celebrate the area’s farm-fresh produce, enjoy tastings and exclusive offers and get together with family and friends.

“As well as being able to sample premium beer, wine, spirits and food, there will be live music from Hannah Pead and the Blue Hype band, a range of food, tastings from Timbertown IGA deli, a bar operated by Wauchope Show Society, children’s entertainment and Farmers Market stalls.”

The taste buds will be tempted by everything from chocolates, salamis, cheese and strawberries to award-winning wines, well-known spirits and boutique beers.
