Maximum Chips 2021 — POSTPONED
Eat all the chips you can manage — whether you prefer fries or crinkle-cut slivers of hot potato.
UPDATE Tuesday, August 3: The MFWF's Winter Edition program has been postponed due to current COVID-19 restrictions and will now run from October 1–10. New dates for specific events will be revealed in the coming days — we'll keep you posted here. See the MFWF website for further information on the postponement. For more details on Victoria's current restrictions, see the Department of Health and Human Services website.
Is there anything more glorious than the humble chip? Whether you prefer fries or wedges, shoestring or crinkle-cut, plain or chicken salt — once you start, all you want to do is keep munching.
Luckily, at Melbourne Food & Wine Festival's Maximum Chips event, you won't have to stop. For one potato-filled night at Shed E in Queen Victoria Market, chips are the only thing on the menu. Eat to your greasy heart's content, with all-you-can-devour crinkle-cut spuds, classic shoestring, French fries and fluffy potato gems from 5–7pm or 7.45–9.45pm on Friday, August 20.
Your $35 ticket includes multiple varieties of chips and as much of each as you can handle — plus sauces and other condiments, of course. You'll also receive a drink upon arrival, but bring your card to purchase more as it's a cashless event. Entertainment is on the agenda too, while you're scoffing down all those primo potato pieces.
