The Great Trentham Spudfest 2020 — CANCELLED
Show your love for the humble spud at this out-of-town potato party.
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.
The festival is now in its 13th 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 so you can save your hard-earned cash for the many market stalls, farm-fresh produce and food trucks serving the spud in its many forms. Think loaded fries, scones, soup, rosti, 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, along with a sustainability expo showcasing environmentally-friendly products and services.
