Australia’s beloved eating, drinking and tourism experience, Tasting Australia, has announced its return for 2022, and we’re already excited.
The event, presented by RAA Travel, will take place from Friday, 29 April to Sunday, 8 May. The 2022 event will be the 16th edition of Tasting Australia and will once again showcase the very best South Australian produce, producers, and regions.
After a one-year hiatus due to COVID in 2020, more than 53,000 people came through the gates of Town Square in Victoria Square/Tarntanyangga, and over 90 events were sold out across Adelaide and regional South Australia during the 2021 event.
Premier Steven Marshall recognised the importance of Tasting Australia to the state.
“South Australia is well and truly on the map for our abundant food and beverage scene,” says Marshall.
“Tasting Australia helps to tell the state’s food and beverage story and build our reputation as a must try culinary destination. It is all about offering unique experiences and showcasing the state’s rich regional landscapes, and I am thrilled to see what is in store for the festival in 2022.”
Festival Director Simon Bryant says that autumn feels like the ideal season to host Tasting Australia.
“During autumn, produce is at its peak, our winemakers have just finished vintage and there’s a beautiful sense of enjoying the state’s harvest,” says Bryant.
Established in 1997, Tasting Australia is the country’s longest running eating and drinking festival. The 2021 edition ran from 30 April – 9 May and featured more than 40 local and national chefs, winemakers and other culinary experts, with events spanning across 11 regions from Adelaide to the Barossa, Fleurieu Peninsula, Riverland and Kangaroo Island.
