Festival to feed the soul

Mornington’s coolest food, wine and music gathering, The Peninsula Picnic, is back! Presented by Infiniti, and this year taking place on the first Saturday in April, it will be the perfect weekend event for foodies, music aficionados and families alike.

Headlined by Melbourne rhythm ensemble The Cat Empire, with a supporting line-up of rocking acts including Bob Evans (Jebediah frontman), Sydney folk angels All Our Exes Live in Texas and local up-and-comers nyck and Harrison Storm, the Mornington Racecourse is set to entertain on April 1.

Eight of the region’s best restaurants and five wineries have been handpicked to keep the crowds buzzing across the one-day festival, including Max’s at Red Hill, Merricks General Wine Store, Alatonero, Polperro, Montalto, Green Olive, D.O.C Mornington, Quely and Flinders Hotel all popping up to fill your basket and your glass.

Pitched among the pristine greenery of the Mornington Racecourse, seamlessly blending the authenticity of a food and wine event with the fun and energy of a live music festival, The Peninsula Picnic presented by Infiniti has built a name for itself as one of the best boutique festivals the state has to offer.  Organisers have expanded the event space for a greater audience, and more great real estate to spread your rug.

There will be no better way to spend your Saturday than with some mates, fresh food and wine and a comfortable patch of grass with The Cat Empire and the stunning Mornington Peninsula as your backdrop.

Tickets are on sale now and expected to sell fast, grab your group, pack your picnic blanket and head to www.peninsulapicnic.com.au to secure your spot now.
