Scenic Rim Eat Local Week 2020 regretfully cancelled
Eating locally important now more than ever
Scenic Rim Eat Local Week (including the Winter Harvest Festival) has been officially cancelled for 2020, following ongoing advice from the Australian Government and Queensland Health authorities regarding mass gatherings, non-essential travel and COVID-19.
The small team at Scenic Rim Regional Council which coordinates Eat Local Week in collaboration with local businesses each year is naturally disappointed that this cancellation must happen.
But it is the right decision to put the health and safety of the Scenic Rim’s visitors, producers, tourism operators and the wider community first.
We would like to thank our sponsors, event organisers, food ambassadors, stallholders and the broader Scenic Rim Eat Local Week family for their support and understanding.
In these tough and constantly changing times, we can at least give ourselves something to look forward to by marking 2021 Eat Local Week in our diaries for 26 June to 4 July.
In the meantime now, more than ever, is the time to make the most of the abundant local Scenic Rim food still being produced right on our doorstep.
All of us have the opportunity to support our local producers and food businesses as they adapt to give us safe access to fresh, seasonal, high quality produce.
We as a team continue to look for innovative ways to support our region through this time.
We have published a full list of participants and sponsors who had committed to be part of 2020 events on our Scenic Rim Eat Local Week website so you can show your support for those businesses affected now, and into the future.
We look forward to being able to once again share the sights, sounds and tastes of our unique event when we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Eat Local Week in 2021.
We thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to an amazing 2021 Scenic Rim Eat Local Week. Put 26 June to 4 July in your diaries now!
Please stay safe and healthy.
