South Burnett Wine and Food Festival still ripe for fun

THERE may be changes to where you can drink, but South Burnett Wine and Food in the Park Festival will still be a party.

Event organiser Paula Greenwood wanted to refute comments the festival would become a downer due to licensing changes.

"It's still going to be a great, fun, family day," she said.

Changes to the liquor licence mean revellers can no longer drink in every area of the park.

Ms Greenwood said the majority of the park would be open for drinking, with only a small area restricted from alcohol consumption.

"It is a large area, and it includes the food stalls."

"Don't be put off; it will be a fantastic day."

The changes were introduced because of bad behaviour at last year's festival, which resulted in 16 arrests.

This year's festival will feature eight wineries from the South Burnett wine region and beyond.

For those that are not wine lovers there will be a craft beer tent and munchies for 21 different food stalls.

Head to Memorial Park in Kingaroy on Saturday, March 12, from noon-8pm.
