RIVERSIDE food and wine festival Cork & Fork Fest is returning to Albury next month.
Hosted by Borambola Wines, the festival is a free community event at Noreuil Park on February 15.
Cork & Fork Fest event manager Naomi Miller said the event had grown since its launch in spring 2017.
“We generally average 1500 people at Noreuil Park,” she said.
“We now have 16 food vendors, which helps keeps the queues down.”
Border food vendors will offer dozens of food styles including American barbecue, Indonesian barbecue, Syrian cuisine, woodfired pizza and paella from 5.30pm to 9.30pm.
Borambola Wines will supply its estate-grown wines, Tuckerbox hoppy lager beer and premium apple cider.
Festival-goers can listen to live music from The New Savages and Dane Kennedy Music.
The New Savages call their music Melbourne Hill Country Blues; their distinct take on the droning, rhythmic and hypnotic blues of the Mississippi Hill Country.
Since 2015 the band has played more than 300 shows and has recorded three EPs.
Wagga-based artist Kennedy, who grew up in western NSW, has used his life experiences and love of music to create an art of soulful heartfelt poetry.
He has toured Europe, Africa and the US.
Festival-goers can bring picnic blankets or chairs. BYO food or alcohol is not allowed.
Cork & Fork Fest will also return to Noreuil Park on March 15 after its November event was cancelled due to inclement weather.
