Join this year’s menu of live music and an incredible array of local Yarra Valley food and wine at the Cuban Jazz Festival Harvest Picnic with the new location of the Yarra Valley Racecourse. The unique festival returns this October 23, 2016 with a bigger line-up, a larger site and will feature some of Yarra Valley’s finest gourmet restaurants, decadent wineries and breweries, and fresh local produce. In its 13th consecutive year the festival takes place over one unique day among the stunning surrounds of the Yarra Ranges from 11am till 6pm and is the perfect recipe for that perfect regional escape or family day out.

Set to be the best year of entertainment yet, this year's festival is introducing the Food and Wine Avenue under The Elm Trees, showcasing some of the finest food, wine and produce from the Yarra Valley. Patrons are encouraged to relish in some of the region's best food including, Zonzo Estate's wood fire pizzas, Cold Stream cheese platters, Yarra Valley gourmet spit roast and BBQ or authentic Cuban sandwiches, Indian cuisine from Babaji's Kitchen and Yarra Valley's finest cakes and strawberries.

To top this off patrons will discover first class wines from Zonzo Estate and De Bortoli, beer from Hargreaves Hill, and cider from St Ronans Cider and Coldstream Brewery - or they can head to the Yarra Valley Racing Cocktail Bar for something a little more impressive whilst enjoying the live performances overlooking the scenes of the Yarra Ranges.

The annual event will have guests of all ages exploring all four stages showcasing a blend of live entertainment including soulful beats from jazz bands and live percussion, bongos, sax and vocals from the R&B and Commercial House performers. Starting the day will be ‘The New Monos' on the Main Stage; followed by one of Melbourne's most talented eight piece Latin band ‘Quarter Street' with the popular Melbourne Salsa dance team performing alongside them - the original founders of the modern Melbourne Salsa dancing scene.

It's time to roll out your picnic rug and relax to the soulful sounds from some of the finest Cuban, Latin and Columbian bands while taking your taste buds to heaven discovering some of the best food, wine and produce from Yarra Valley's favourites.
