If you thought the shining star of Tamworth was the golden guitar statue, well look, you probably wouldn't be wrong. But the country music-loving town can also hold its own when it comes to delicious food. The Taste Tamworth Festival is the annual premier food event for the region, so take off your bootleg jeans and get on your elasticised pants — it's time to eat.
The event kicks off with the ever-popular Pop-Up Bar, where you'll spend a glorious evening with delicious canapes, local beers and wines and serenades by local crooners. Next is Taste in the Park, where you can join the 10,000-strong crowd in sampling the best regional food in beautiful Bicentennial Park.
Finally, slow it down a bit with the Farm Gate Trail, and take yourself on a self-guided tour of farms in the region to meet the farmers and sample their delicious fresh produce.
