With spring finally at our doorstep, now is the best time to enjoy the beautiful sunshine with an array of local seafood at the upcoming Wynnum Seafood Festival, to be held in the centre of Wynnum on Edith Street between Bay Terrace and Tingal Road.
As Brisbane’s new signature seafood event comes to Wynnum’s foreshore on Saturday, 22 October, families and groups alike will be treated to an abundance of fresh catch of the local waters.
“We have our famous Moreton Bay bugs, mud crabs and bay, king and tiger prawns and spring is also a great time for Queensland oysters, scallops and wild caught fish such as reef fish and snapper,” says local fisherman Ian MacKenzie.
The event is a great addition to the area’s local event calendar with the plans in place to keep it as an annual event. Local Councillor for Wynnum Manly Ward, Peter Cumming says “Residents and visitors to the Wynnum Seafood Festival will have the opportunity to experience the bayside area’s unique charms firsthand while sampling the best of the region’s fresh seafood and local catch.”
Adding to the high-quality restaurants and cosy cafes in the area, the festival will have a wide array of activities lined up in the relaxed seaside village. Rides for the kids, and a diverse offering of independent boutiques, homewares, and retro treasures for the adults.
Running for one day only, the festival starts at 11am to 6pm. Families, locals, and visitors can expect an exciting program of free events, live music and entertainment.
Interested market stallholders and businesses wanting to get involved in the event and support the local community are encouraged to contact the festival organisers. The Wynnum Seafood Festival is presented by naming rights sponsor Niclin Group who are proud to support Wynnum’s vibrant local community and thriving local industry.
