There will be a wide range of food and cultural experiences on offer during Kangaroo Island’s FEASTival which begins tomorrow

Tourism Minister Leon Bignell said more than 500 people are expected to attend the week long feast which included fine dining, pop up restaurants and a garden dinner.

“More than 200 people are also visiting from interstate and overseas. Overall it is expected that thousands of dollars will be injected into the local economy,” Mr Bignell said.

“The value of the media exposure can’t be underestimated in promoting this world class pristine environment.

“This year’s FEASTival features wonderful food experiences set in some of the most spectacular settings in the world.

“This event also provides the opportunity to chat to producers of some of the finest food in South Australia.

“It is a great way to explore Kangaroo Island and at the same time visit iconic private homes and surrounding scenery.”

FEASTival founder Nick Hannaford said the event had the ability to educate the community.

“This year all the local schools joined the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation program and cooked selected dishes (with local chef Kate Sumner) for the FEASTival launch,” Mr Hannaford said.

This year’s program includes The Enchanted Garden dinner, The Hothouse, a number of Pop Up and Wilderness events and the SALife Table Surfing program.

FEASTival is held from May 1 to May 8.
