Feast on the Mornington Peninsula's best produce with one hell of a picnic.
It's time to break out those picnic rugs and farewell festival season in style, as The Peninsula Picnic returns for its annual celebration of food, wine and good times.
Taking over the Mornington Racecourse on Saturday, April 1, this year's lineup promises to be as impressive as ever, showcasing the region's finest epicurean delights, alongside a rather nifty musical offering.
Showing off their goods on the day — and ensuring bellies and wine glasses stay happily full — will be a hand-picked selection of local producers. Expect offerings from renowned wineries like Green Olive and Montalto, and dining hot-spots like D.O.C Mornington and McCrae's Alatonero, plus a series of cooking demonstrations and tastings headed by chef Adam D'Sylva (Coda, Tonka), introducing the best of the Peninsula Pantry farmers market.
Topping it all off, The Peninsula Picnic has landed a cracking lineup of live tunes, headlined by Melbourne's own Cat Empire. They'll be joined by the likes of Sydney folk outfit All Our Exes Live in Texas, Jebediah frontman Bob Evans, and emerging local acts nyck and Harrison Storm.
