Twilight. It’s when the heavenly shades of night are falling. That magical time of day that lies between daylight and darkness; a time when the light from the sky appears diffused and often pinkish. Twilight is stunning, making it the perfect time for Maldon to host their annual dinner.
That’s right, the Maldon Twilight Dinner (and highlight event for the Maldon calendar) is back for 2019 and is set for Saturday January 12.
For one night only, tables will line the iconic Main Street of Maldon, declared Australia’s first Notable Town by the National Trust in 1965, transforming the streetscape and creating an utterly unique visual spectacle.
As the day slowly turns to night, attendees indulge in the fabulous food from local providers, wine from the region and enjoy wonderful entertainment from international opera artists in the street as the sun sets on the horizon. As the light diffuses in the sky, guests will soon dance the night away with the tribute band BABBA who will be performing all the iconic music of ABBA.
Bringing everyone together for one night for a sit down meal, the dinner runs from 6pm until 11pm, ensuring you get the most out of your experience under the stars while celebrating everything local. Tickets for the dinner are $60 which includes a food hamper filled with the very best in local produce, including cheese, a baguette, local cherries, charcuterie, mouth-watering chocolates and of course your main meal. Wines can be purchased on the night, but please note the liquor license does not permit BYO.
What started 14 years ago as a way to showcase Maldon’s cafes and producers (under the original name of Tastes of Gold), the Maldon Twilight Dinner has since grown to three times the original size, seeing more than a thousand visitors come from the local community, around Victoria, interstate and even some internationals. Don’t miss your chance to wine and dine at twilight this January.
The theme this year is Masquerade so pop on your best mask and enjoy a night under the stars in historic Maldon this January. Call Pam on 0417150709 to secure your place.
