In addition to the SpringFest program of events, Feathertop's cellar door, Providore and Alfresco Restaurant will be open as usual so visitors are welcome to stay for lunch and soak up the carnival atmosphere.
Organiser of the event, Courtney Rossiter, said “the response from local businesses has been so positive. We are excited to be launching a new event that showcases the range of food and wine experiences that we do here at Feathertop.”
“It's going to be a great opportunity for the community to shop locally and enjoy the excellent produce that we have available right here in Bright and surrounds. We're also excited about the exhibition space we have for local creatives where they can showcase their talents; and with loads of entertainment for the whole family, we look forward to welcoming everyone for a fantastic spring day out!”
