Kiama Artisan Food Festival

The Kiama Artisan Food Festival, to be held at the Kiama Showground and Pavilion on August 11 and 12, is an all too rareĀ  opportunity to join in a celebration of our best local produce and cuisine. Saturday night features a 50 km dinner and on Sunday there is a market, workshops, kids cooking classes, live music and more.

The 50 km dinner is the inspiration of indigenous chef, Mark Olive, who brings the vibrant colours and earthy tastes of ancient outback food to the contemporary dining table. Award-winning caterers, Culinarius, are joining with Mark to feature the best of our fresh local produce in a three course showcase dinner with matching wines.

Mark will share with guests his approach to cooking inspired by watching his mother and aunts prepare meals and developed through training and working in acclaimed restaurants across the globe.
