June 2020 UPDATE
During this most challenging and difficult of times, we want to give you a quick update on our thoughts and plans for the Bicheno Food & Wine Festival 2020.
At this point in time, we are crossing our collective fingers in the hope that the festival will be able to proceed (with social distancing measures in place) on the 21st of November this year. However, for this to be a reality we need three very important elements in place:
- Social licence from the community
- Government approval
- Adequate lead time
In the coming weeks we will survey the Bicheno community to ensure the festival is welcome in principle, and wait with baited breath as state and federal governments decide on how best to reintroduce public events back into our lives. But we can’t wait forever – we have set July 31st as the deadline for a firm decision on the fate of Bicheno Food & Wine Festival 2020.
We’ll keep you up to date with any developments – please keep an eye on your inbox and our Facebook page.
Until then – stay safe (and keep on washing those hands).
– The Festival Team
