Fourth annual Maitland Taste Festival
Maitland will make its mark on the foodie map with this weekend’s fourth annual Maitland Taste Festival. The two-day event runs Saturday 10am to 5pm and Sunday 10am to 4pm. Formerly held in Maitland’s mall, this year’s event has been expanded to incorporate the wider city area. Not only will you be able to wander among stalls offering food, drinks and plenty more, but the festival also includes cooking classes and demonstrations, as well as wine and cheese masterclasses. Wineries taking part include Lovedale’s Allandale Winery, Rothbury’s Macquariedale Organic Wines and Pokolbin’s Drayton’s Family Wines and Mount View Estate, reports the Newcastle Herald.
