Goomeri Pumpkin Festival

From gourmet pumpkin foods, to country classics, and traditional festival favourites, the Goomeri Pumpkin Festival 2017 will be sure to cater for all food-lovers...

Local businesses such as the The Grape & The Olive, Goomeri Cafe and Restaurant, Joe's Grand Hotel, the Pumpkin Pie Café, Foodworks, Liberty Service Station and BP Service Station all have food available.

Come along to Dickinson Park where you will find the Pumpkin Festival Food Hall located in the SES Building. The Food Hall offers a BBQ and sells an array of pumpkin-related foods such as pumpkin pie.

If you're in the mood for more traditional country-style fare, walk a little further down Dickinson Park to the camp kitchen, specialising in damper and billy tea.

In the Lions Park you can find the yearly favourite pumpkin sausages. Look out for this specialty barbeque sausage stall, next to the Information Centre.

THE PUMPKIN SOUP VAN

Don’t forget to look for the famous Pumpkin Soup Van located beside the Food Hall in Dickinson Park.

Be sure to enjoy this pumpkin delicacy, made to our secret recipe and served with complimentary bread!

Over 400 litres of our delicious pumpkin soup are made each year by our hard-working volunteers for the festival.

 

GOURMET DESTINATIONS AND THE CELEBRITY CHEF STAGE

The Gourmet Destinations precinct of our festival highlights a select group of local producers, proudly displaying and promoting their products grown within our region.

To showcase our products, we have gathered a team of great local chefs, who will be cooking with a selection from these growers and producers, including; Matt Golinski (Food Ambassador for Gympie Regional Council), Jason Ford (Food Ambassador for South Burnett Regional Council) and Dan & Steph (MKR Winners).

Taste testing of their dishes will be up for grabs and then you will be able to buy the ingredients direct from the producer to take home and replicate their recipies!
