Eat the Street events you just can’t miss

THERE is much more to Lismore's 2020 Norco Eat the Street festival than just food.

As well as the festival itself on Saturday, March 14, there are also a number of ticketed events being held before and during the festival.

Progressive dinner

At various locations on Thursday, March 12, from 5.30pm-9pm. Tickets $135.

The first Eat the Street event on the schedule is a progressive dinner, priced at $135 per person.

Participants begin at the Lismore Workers Club to enjoy a cocktail and canapes before heading to select venues across the city.

The evening includes a three course meal spread over venues at Miss Lizzie's, La Baracca and The Bank, with one course and a matching drink at each venue.

The ticket price includes a coach which will transport diners to each venue throughout the evening.

Additional beverages can be purchased on the night at your own cost.

Farm tour

At Lismore Visitor Information Centre before moving to various locations on Friday, March 13 from 9am-3pm. Tickets $125.

Participants will have the chance to tour some of the region's local farms and speak to the growers and producers while tasting products in an exclusive farm tour.

Farm tour participants will witness the practices of growing contemporary "dry land" rice at Nimbin Rice, Arabica bean coffee at Byron Aromas Coffee and traditional Australian bush foods at Wattle Tree Creek.

The farm tour includes breaks to sample an array of local produce and refreshments and concludes with a gastronomic long table lunch at Eltham Pantry.

The tour will depart from and return to the Lismore Visitor Information Centre.

Join Australian celebrity chef Georgia Barnes and make a delicious meal with fresh, seasonal and local ingredients at one of two exclusive masterclasses on March 14, priced at $90.
