It is with great sadness and regret that we postpone the Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Festival in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your support of the Bendigo wine region. We intend to hold the festival later in the year at this stage. We will work with all our fantastic patrons to refund pre-purchased tickets in the coming weeks and we will make contact with you. Thanks for your patience during this time.
The Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Festival is on Saturday 4th April 2020 with fantastic Bendigo wines, regional food stalls, live music and a great crowd. Harvest will be over for Bendigo's winemakers and it will be time to celebrate with wine and food in Rosalind Park, in the centre of Bendigo.
Local winemakers will have more than 80 Bendigo wines for you to enjoy in the city’s biggest alfresco wine garden.
Rosalind Park is transformed into an open air wine garden with local wine, food stalls, lawn games, competitions and live music from The Deans and The Funk Junkies.
The festive atmosphere, fabulous wine and food make for a fantastic day out.
Grab your partner, or get a group together, and enjoy the autumn afternoon at this Bendigo wine and food event. Gates open at 11am and the festival concludes at 4pm. Entry is via Sidney Myer Place.
You can bring a picnic rug or take a group in one of the VIP marquees.
