One of Queensland’s most iconic events, the Ginger Flower and Food Festival will return to The Ginger Factory for its 22nd year in January 2018. The festival promises to delight the senses, with three spectacular days of food, flowers and entertainment celebrating the best of the Sunshine Coast region and the 75-year history of Buderim Ginger.
From Friday 19 to Sunday 21 January 2018, the Ginger Factory will burst with colour, showcasing an exquisite range of ornamental gingers and heliconia’s, which thrive in the Sunshine Coast’s sub-tropical conditions. A stunning array of over 3000 plants will be available for sale to festival goers.
Lifestyle and foodie presentations, as well as cooking demonstrations from renowned chefs will run across the three days. Sampling of Buderim Ginger’s new ginger beer ranges will be available, including new flavours and their latest alcoholic tipples.
The event is a must-do for foodies, green thumbs, ginger beer lovers or those wanting to soak up the festival vibes in one of Australia’s most enviable climates.
The festival will pay a special homage to the long Australian history of Buderim Ginger. Today’s booming business started off as a small farming community and ginger growers’ cooperative, expanding over time to one of the world’s largest suppliers of ginger products and beverages.
The 2018 Ginger Flower & Food Festival is a free all-weather event that all ages will enjoy!
