We all know carrots are a dinner and snacking staple but can you make your carrots sing?
Head to the Winter Harvest Festival at Aratula on July 7 to see how you can turn your carrots into incredible musical instruments.
Musician and renowned carrot clarinet musician Linsey Pollak will play his carrot clarinet on the main stage and give the audience a demonstration on how to transform carrots into musical instruments. You will be amazed by the sound! He is also running two sold-out workshops in the Just Veg. Carrot Central Activity Tent, where he will show vegetable and music enthusiasts how to transform their veg.
The Winter Harvest Festival is the signature event of Scenic Rim Eat Local Week and will bring producers from across the region to the Aratula Sports Complex for a day of eating and drinking local. Live music, free kids rides and a tractor pulling competition are all part of the fun.
During winter the paddocks around Aratula and Kalbar in the Scenic Rim are brimming with carrots, which feed millions of Australians along Australia’s east coast.
Scenic Rim Mayor, Cr Greg Christensen, encouraged residents around south-east Queensland to come and feast on the Scenic Rim’s bounty of food and wine at the Winter Harvest Festival.
“The Winter Harvest Festival is an amazing celebration of the incredible bounty of produce which grows, and is made, in the Scenic Rim,” he says.
“It’s a relaxed, enjoyable day in stunning scenic surrounds. Visitors can eat their way around the region from one location, buy produce, cheese, olives, wine and craft beer direct from the makers and growers and learn a little bit more about the Scenic Rim’s vibrant farming sector.”
Remember the first 1000 people through the gate at the Winter Harvest Festival will be given a free reusable Eat Local Week shopper bag, perfect to fill with local goodies.
