East Malvern's humble Central Park isn't quite as grand as the one in NYC, but it'll certainly be tastier with the East Malvern Food and Wine Festival coming to its green lawns on Sunday, November 18. The weather will (surely) be warming up by then and it'll be a wise call to spend a day in the park — especially when you add 20 Victorian wineries and a handful of breweries into the mix.

Go along to taste vino from Bendigo, Rutherglen and Heathcote regions, beers from Cheltenham's Bad Shepherd Brewing Co. and the Yarra Valley's Coldstream Brewery, and taste till your heart is content and you've forgotten tomorrow is Monday. Four Pillars will also be there slinging G&Ts, Mr Black will be shaking espresso martinis and there will be a bar dedicated to Aperol spritzes.

Food-wise, there'll be snacks from Riserva, as well as pop-ups from Nepal Dining, Richmond Oysters and an ice cream stall where you can really go all out and treat yourself.

You'll be able to stock up on artisanal produce and, if you or your mates have kids, you can send them to a magician masterclass. Meanwhile, your other (furrier) kids can score some doggie treats from the Canine Wellness Truck.

The event is free to attend — you'll just need to buy your food and wine as you go.
