Drink Art Food Torquay

Drink Art Food Torquay festival is a three-day celebration of the very best of local produce and is running again from October 6 to 8. This is an annual event, with each day celebrating the local produce; including food, art, beverages and music. Each day will present something new and exciting for the attendees, with the weekend kicking off with the Bells Beach Brewing Bus on Friday night, the Torquay Celebration on Saturday and concluding with the Bell Street Fiesta.
