The Food, Wine and Sustainability Festival is a major community and tourism event on the Australian event calendar and takes place in the heart of Manly along The Corso and picturesque Manly Beach.
Now in its 27th year, the Manly Food, Wine & Sustainability Festival will showcase Manly restaurants and NSW wineries, and be supported by live entertainment including music on stage, roving music and entertainment, and cooking demonstrations.
Up to 15,000 food and wine enthusiasts from Sydney and NSW, interstate and overseas flock to Manly each day to experience this Festival.
The 2013 Festival will bring you a fantastic variety of entertainment including great music acts, the Northern Beaches Hospitality Challenge, Love Food - Hate Waste Cooking demonstrations by MasterChef contestant Jay Huxley and our Sustainable Hub.
We thank our entertainment sponsors 'The Old Manly Boatshed' and 'Hotel Steyne' for creating a great musical program.

We are looking for enthusiastic people to assist in a number of volunteer roles. For more information visit Festival Volunteers.
The easiest way to the Manly Food, Wine & Sustainability Festival is to use buses or ferries. If you do use your car we advise to park away from Manly’s town centre as the roads become heavily congested and parking close to the event can be difficult.
A road closure will be in place between 4.00pm Friday 31st May till 7.00am Monday 3rd June 2013 between the corner intersection South Steyne/Wentworth Street and the corner intersection North Steyne/Raglan Street.
To support the sustainability of the festival and local area, residents and general event goers are encouraged to walk, cycle or use the Council’s free Hop Skip and Jump bus service to Manly for the festival. Additional bike racks will be provided at North Steyne.
