The regional produce, flavours and creative culture of South East Queensland’s High Country will be showcased at Hampton Festival on Sunday 19 May. Held at Chapman Park, just 32 kilometres north from Toowoomba, Hampton Festival is known for its celebration of fresh regional produce and reputation as an artistic enclave.
The festival’s program will feature live music, a fresh produce market, art exhibition and more than 70 market stalls, food and wine exhibitors. This year’s event will also showcase Growers On The Green, a precinct within the festival dedicated to showcasing local growers’ produce where locals can meet and interact with regional farmers.
Now in its 17th year, Hampton Festival is a highlight on the Southern Queensland events calendar showcasing the region’s best produce, restaurants, wineries, providores and artists. Patrons will be able to watch the large sand sculpture created by Steve Machell come to life in the Growers On The Green precinct. The festival will also celebrate the region’s artistic culture with exhibiting artists including silk painter Lynda Georgeson, watercolourist Bruce Griffiths, leatherwork artist Bill Webb and horn and pewter craftsman Ross Plant.
