2019 Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Fesival

The Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Festival is on Saturday 6th April 2019 with fantastic Bendigo wines, regional cuisine, live music and a great crowd.

The Bendigo Winegrowers Association puts on this celebration of Bendigo wine and food in Rosalind Park, in the centre of Bendigo. Local winemakers will showcase over 60 different wines that you can sample and indulge in while enjoying the city’s biggest alfresco wine garden. There will be plenty of food stalls and competitions, and live music from The Deans and The Funk Junkies.

The festive atmosphere, fabulous wine and regional food make for a fantastic day out. Grab your partner, or get a group together, and enjoy the autumn afternoon at this local Bendigo wine and food event. You can bring a picnic rug to relax in the park or opt for the VIP treatment with one of the private marquees.

Thanks to principal sponsor Strategem, and supporters City of Greater Bendigo, Coliban Water and Bendigo Tourism.
