Stanthorpe Apple & Grape Harvest Festival 2022
Apple picking, wine fiestas, berry farm tours, grape-stomping sessions, leafy gardens — you'll find them all southwest of Brisbane.
February 23, 2022
If you watched Parks and Recreation, then wished you could be Leslie Knope, agreed that waffles are the best way to start the day, started celebrating Galentine's Day and wished that you could attend a harvest festival, congrats — that's the perfect reaction. Most of those are easy to achieve, too, other than wanting being the show's protagonist. And, by heading to Stanthorpe between Friday, February 25–Sunday, March 6, you can easily tick one of them off of your list.
Every two years, the town throws a huge party, celebrating all the food and drink that the Granite Belt region has to offer. The Stanthorpe Apple & Grape Harvest Festival is the end result, and it's promising everything from apple picking, wine fiestas, berry farm tours, grape-stomping sessions and leafy gardens again in 2022.
Other highlights include farmers markets, art exhibitions, a big free street party to kick things off, brewery tours, a gala ball, a fun run, busking championships, fireworks, an apple pie competition and movie screenings. You'll also be able to peer at a wall of fruit, because why not?
2022 marks Stanthorpe's 150th birthday, too, if you need another reason to make the almost three-hour drive southwest from Brisbane for a weekend or two.
