It's easy to dismiss the potato as just a humble food staple — but at The Great Trentham Spudfest, our starchy friend takes centre stage. Set deep in the heart of so-called spud country, Trentham — and its ochre-coloured volcanic soil — is renowned for producing some of Australia's best potatoes. And to celebrate the area and its many potato farmers, Saturday, May 4 sees the tightknit community come together to honour everything about spuds.

The festival is now in its 11th year and continues to grow — the small town of 1200 people saw more than 6000 potato-lovers show up last year. The festival is completely free to attend. Save your hard-earned cash for the many market stalls, farm-fresh produce and food trucks spruiking the spud in its many tastebud-tickling forms — think loaded fries, scones, soup, rostis, spirals and patatas bravas.

But the themed fun doesn't begin and end with edible treats. There'll also be games, including potato sack, potato cart and spud 'n' spoon races and even a 'photato-graphy' competition. Live music, cooking demonstrations and a hay bale maze are also on the bill.

The Great Trentham Spudfest will run from 10am–4pm on Saturday, May 4. For more information, visit the website
