In 2017 the Feast of the Senses Festival will take on a different format.   For the first time the Festival will be held a condensed period of six days incorporating just one weekend.    This will allow visitors and locals to the Festival to enjoy all events in a shorter space of time.

Showcase Events for the 2017 Festival will be:

Thursday 23 & Friday 24 March:

Food Trails #1 and #2.   These offer the opportunity to visit farms not normally accessible to the public, to speak with and learn about the methods used by local producers.

Friday 24 March:

International Food Fare  held at Warrina Lakes.  An evening of food and entertainment in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.   An opportunity to experience different cultures and local entertainment

Saturday 25 March:

Guinness World Record Attempt – World’s Longest Banana Split:   To be held at Calendar Park, home of Innisfail Leprechauns – Brothers Leagues Club.    Will involve a three week lead-in of workshops to create a major art installation that will be the framework in which the banana split will be made.     Attempt will be just over 8,000 metres – involving 40,000 locally grown bananas with cream and topping from local producers and lots of ice cream!!!

Sunday 26 March:

Market Day Extravaganza  highlighting the immense range of rare and exotic fruits and featuring around 100 stalls of local produce, as well as plenty of entertainment including activities and competitions for children, cooking competitions and community entertainment.   The Food Court will, as always, be a highlight of the day.
