If there’s one thing regional NSW knows how to do, it’s make a bloody good meat pie. And if you’re looking for somewhere to immerse yourself in all things pastry, you’ve found it, at the Southern Highlands’ annual Pie Fest.
After a roaring success last year, Pie Fest is back. And it’s bigger, better and meatier than ever.
It’s all going down at the Bong Bong Racecourse in Bowral this weekend, where between 10am and 3pm each day, visitors can taste, purchase and enjoy a pie or two, while sampling some local beer, wine and cider in the beautiful Southern Highlands.
You better believe it’s going to be a good time, with daily pie-eating contests with prizes to be won, a bunch of market stalls to peruse, and – most importantly – more pies than you can poke a stick at.
Plus, it’s where the best pies in NSW and the ACT will unite to be showcased, tasted and critiqued. And at the end, one lucky baker will reign victorious.
Tickets are $5 per person, and can be purchased online, or at the gate. Grab yours here to beat the queues and maximise your sweet, sweet pie-eating time.
