NORTH East food and wine festivals are taking a cautious approach after Victoria extended the lockdown in Melbourne on Wednesday.
Glenrowan's Trails, Tastings and Tales festival, which is usually run over the Queen's Birthday long weekend (June 12-14), has been postponed until October 9 and 10.
Trails, Tastings and Tales spokeswoman Jennifer Booth said the three-day festival usually attracted more than 1000 patrons.
"With the restrictions in place and extended lockdown in Melbourne it's not feasible to run a festival of this kind right now," she said.
"For the safety of everybody involved we've decided to postpone our event until spring."
