Celebrating a decade of deliciousness in 2021, Scenic Rim Eat Local Week will be held from June 26 through to July 4, with prelude events staged in Brisbane and the region. It is the biggest program in the event’s 10 year history with over 125 events across 48 locations.
Scenic Rim Regional Council Mayor Greg Christensen said he was thrilled events were selling out already, and urged people to buy tickets to their favourite events now.
“After being postponed last year, Scenic Rim Eat Local Week is back and proving to be so much more than just tasting our amazing local food and wine. The event showcases the region as a leading destination, driving tourism, fostering community pride and generating ongoing economic benefits. In 2019 Eat Local Week generated nearly $2million for the regional economy, and we look forward to doing this again this year. Tickets sales are showing that people really are after a range of experiences, from the marque dining adventures, to cooking classes, kids activities and overnight stays and tours,” he said.
