Cypriot Food and Wine Festival returns to Sydney after two years

·

After a two-year forced absence due to COVID-19, the longest running and largest community organised Food and Wine Festival is back on November 27, 2022.

Organised by the Cyprus Community of NSW Ltd, the Festival continues the tradition of the Ancient Greek world – the festival of Dionysus – that was held annually in honour of the wine god in Limassol, Cyprus.

The Festival Director and member of The Cyprus Club Board, Andrew Paschali, said: “Our ancestors brought ancient traditions, culinary and other customs to their new homeland and introduced the delicacies, foods, and beverages which over the decades have become part of this nation’s fabric.”

Since 1989, the festival has been held at The Cyprus Club in Stanmore.

The Festival’s opening is scheduled for Sunday, November 27 at 10.30 am with the Inner West Council Mayor, and a welcome to country ceremony from local Indigenous elders, and the Cyprus Community’s dancing school paying homage “dance of the wine harvest.”

This year’s festival will showcase local talent, Australian producers of food, wine, beverages, and young
and up-and-coming Australian producers supplying the local and export markets.

With a day-long entertainment cultural and artistic program on stage, sample bags, magazines,
children’s rides, games, Cypriot and Greek street food stalls, boutique wines, beverages, conserves
and much more, it is a foodies and wine lovers paradise! All welcome, entrance free.
