The HerCanberra team knows a thing or two about eating out—so when we say these six events are not to be missed, you know we’re probably giving you some good advice.

And while our beloved city certainly isn’t lacking in amazing cafés and restaurants, there’s just something extra special about a dedicated food and wine event, especially as the warmer weather rolls around.

From a Project Enoki pop-up to the world’s chicest picnic, this spring/summer foodie season has been stepped up a notch—our stomachs are already growling in anticipation.

Project Enoki by Sourdog Provisions

We all remember the delectable food Project Enoki brought to Verity Lane (hello, burnt Basque cheesecake) but now Gerald Ong and Esther Loke are re-visiting their top hits with a very special event: Project Enoki by Sourdog Provisions.

Featuring a fun tasting menu packed full of the South-East Asian deliciousness that made Project Enoki so popular, you can’t miss this opportunity to dig back into these Canberra foodie favourites.

Sunday 16 October | 28/64 Kelleway Ave, Nicholls | Tickets here.

Urban Wine Walk

A self-guided wine walk on a Saturday afternoon? Wine-not! Bringing the streets and laneways of Canberra alive as some of the best local venues transform into cellar doors, the Urban Wine Walk is a unique wine tasting experience.

Simply choose which venue you’d like to start at—with options including Midnight Bar, Bar Beirut, Grease Monkey and Hopscotch—and enjoy complimentary tastings of Australian wines, as well as a food voucher to use at a venue of your choice. All within walking distance of each other, there’s no bus on this wine tour, so make sure to take your comfiest shoes!

Saturday 29 October | Various locations | Tickets here.

Canberra Handmade Markets

Brownies, gin, cheese, coffee, donuts and more—the Handmade Markets are back this October to bring you the best of local produce and caterers. And with plenty to choose from, it’s the perfect time to re-stock the pantry (or indulge your tastebuds on the day).

Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October | EPIC Park, Flemington Rd, Mitchell | More information here.

The Forage

The ultimate showcase of Canberra’s Street food is back to fill our stomachs this November—and while the city location hasn’t been announced yet, one thing is for sure: it’ll be amazing.

Previously bringing foodies the tastes of Kusukusu Crepe and Waffle, Bare Bones BBQ, La Bancarella, Chimmi and more, expect the best street food, drinks and live music. Stay tuned for more info.

Diner en Blanc

Dry clean your white frock and dust off your best glassware, the world’s chicest picnic is back.

A sophisticated celebration of food, friends, and fine wine, Le Dîner en Blanc is coming to Canberra on Saturday 26 November at a new secret location—perfect for lovers of French food and wine.

For ticketed guests, a selection of French-inspired gourmet hampers are available for pre-order, and a curated list of French champagnes and wines (as well as non-alcoholic drinks) are also available for pre-order and will be waiting for you at the venue on the night of the event. Très excité!

Wine Island

Dreaming of a summer island getaway? Meet Wine Island, the ultimate wine lovers’ paradise.

Coming to Lake Burley Griffin from Friday 2 until Sunday 4 December, Queen Elizabeth II Island (formerly known as Aspen Island) will be transformed into a lush, green oasis for a getaway full of high-quality drops from Australian winemakers available and delicious food—promising to be the perfect complement to the summer heat.

And after a very wet winter, you have to admit that indulging in a chilled glass of wine from a sun-drenched bar has never sounded so good.
