Off the back of a sell-out event in 2018, The Peninsula Picnic returns with an unprecedented line-up of Australian music acts, local restaurants, wineries and producers, bringing together the best of the Peninsula to Mornington Racecourse for one day only. Led by indie rock five-piece The Rubens, playing alongside beloved songwriting legend Sarah Blasko, indie prodigy Tia Gostelow, Latin outfit San Lazaro, and up-and-coming folk artist Fraser A. Gordon, music-lovers will be wooed by the mix of indie sounds, folk rock and soulful tunes across the day. The culinary line-up features regional greats and some new faces, including Jackalope’s Rare Hare, Montalto, Green Olive at Red Hill, Max’s Restaurant, Tucks and many more. Wines from T’Gallant, Prancing Horse, Quealy and Kerri Greens, beers from Yak Ales and Pimm’s cocktails will keep picnic-lovers cool and satiated for a day of dancing and culinary delights.
In addition to the smorgasbord of live music throughout the day, there will be sessions with top winemakers, market stalls from Peninsula artisans and kids’ activities to help you while away the hours among the pristine surrounds of Mornington Racecourse.
A true celebration of local wine and food talent, The Peninsula Picnic seamlessly blends a foodie festival with cellar door tastings, a farmers’ market and the sweet sounds of some of Australia’s best songwriters.
