Australia’s First Ever Grains Festival is Coming to Sydney

Eat, Sydney / 20 June 2018

Carbs, glorious carbs! Grains Festival celebrates all things bread, bagels, beer, pasta, pastries and beyond.

A freshly baked miche sourdough loaf, a butter-laden croissant, a cold beer – is there anything better than carbs? Many would testify no (ourselves included) and now a festival dedicated to all things grains is landing in Sydney. It’s fittingly hosted at the flour mill on Summer Hill, which functioned as a fully operational flour mill from 1922 until 2009.
You’ll want to pencil Sunday 1st July in the diary, with the Grains festival kicking off from 10am to 3pm. If you thought for a moment that the event was dedicated solely to bread, which we wouldn’t be mad about, Grains Festival shall be showcasing everything from bread to pastries, biscuits, pasta, and of course beer artisans.
All the big names in carbs will be there, including sourdough lords Sonoma, plus the bearded baking kings Knafeh, and Brooklyn Boy Bagels, who’ll be dishing up their signature NYC style bagels. It doesn’t stop there either, with Brasserie Bread, The Bread and Butter Project, plus Amado’s Pasta and butter god Pepe Saya also making an appearance plus more.
To wash down all that delicious pasta and pastries, brewers including Young Henrys, The Grifter Brewing Company and Capital Brewing Co will also be there on the day. If vino is more your style, keep an eye out for Cake Wines.
If all that wasn’t incentive enough, punters will also be given the opportunity to enter an Instagram competition, where $5,000 worth of prizes are up for grabs. Just capture the most creative post in front of the site’s epic art mural.
Entry to Grains Festival is completely free and undercover, which means there’s really no excuse to head along and celebrate.
