PSA: Sydney Is Getting A Carbs Festival This Winter

It’s time to bust out your favourite pair of expandable-waist pants and reschedule your cheat day, because a festival dedicated to everyone’s favourite food group – grains (AKA carbs) – is happening in Sydney this Sunday. That’s right, it’s a grains festival to celebrate the most delicious foods available, so eat your fill and get ready to hibernate for the rest of winter.

We’re talking mouth-watering croissants, fresh-out-the-oven baguettes smothered in fresh butter, bagels with only the most delicious fillings, biscuits, pasta and beer.

Bakers from all over Sydney will flock to The Flour Mill in Summer Hill for Grains Festival 2018, to showcase all of their goodies.

Brooklyn Boys Bagels will be slinging their – you guessed it – bagels, The Bread and Butter Project, Sonoma, and Brasserie Breads will have a selection of their famed sourdough loaves available for purchase, The Bearded Bakers will be bringing their mouthwatering Knafeh desserts, along with a bunch more talented chefs, bakers, pasta makers and more.

And who can forget arguably the greatest carb of all? Alcohol. Cake Wines, Young Henry’s and The Grifter Brewing Company will be looking after the bar, so you stay nice and hydrated.

Grains Festival 2018 is all going down this Sunday, July 1. Entry is free. For more information, check out the Facebook event.
