    The Orange F.O.O.D Week (Food of Orange District) festival is Australia’s longest running regional food festival and has been acclaimed as one of Australia’s top ten food festivals . It’s one of the Orange region’s most loved events, appealing to both residents and visitors alike, and celebrates a significant milestone in 2016 marking the event’s 25th anniversary year.

    Starting from humble beginnings in 1991, the F.O.O.D Week Association was established by a group of passionate and committed local foodies as a voluntary organisation aimed at celebrating the local producers and produce of the region. The objective of the F.O.O.D Week Association since inception has always been to promote the diverse and excellent regional produce from the district across three local government areas – Orange, Blayney and Cabonne. Its prime function is to coordinate and run F.O.O.D Week – a gourmet festival showcasing the region’s food and wine, food producers, wineries, restaurants, chefs, caterers and cooks.

    As part of Orange F.O.O.D Week, the Association stages a number of major events which are designed to attract visitors to the region and promote the use of local produce. Orange F.O.O.D Week, held annually in April, is now recognised by Destination NSW as one of the flagship events of the state and has evolved to become a gourmet festival of national standing.
