Roll out your picnic rug, and relax to the sweet sounds of some of Australia’s finest acts, while taking your taste buds on a trip to heaven discovering the best food, wine and produce from Peninsula favourites, watch our pages for the full list of food and wine providers as announced.

The Peninsula Picnic enjoyed a sold out inaugural event, and why not, it was the most extensive food, wine and music gathering ever seen on the peninsula.

Returning March 20 they are planning a bigger line-up, a larger site, plus even more gourmet restaurants, decadent wineries, fresh local produce and quality artisan wares.

With a country harvest atmosphere, The Peninsula Picnic takes place over one unique day in the leafy and sea-salted surrounds of Mornington Racecourse, and is the recipe for that perfect regional escape or family day out.

“The Mornington Peninsula, about an hour from Melbourne, is beautiful with its boutique wineries, rolling hills and long beach walks. Increasingly it’s known for its gourmet food too. Put it all together and it’s a stylish place, indeed. With this new venture, it may just redefine the very idea of a simple Sunday picnic.” The Guardian

“The sight of discovering such quirky finds like witty signs to make you smile and food that had be created with love and passion and had you licking your lip has us excited for 2016!!” Wicked Child

“The first non-race day event at the racecourse was a complete success, with a sell out crowd of over 4,500…wine flowed from all four corners of the festival…The perfect weather, combined with some ice cold Pimms made the day one of the most unique and memorable festivals of 2015 … Keep an eye out for The Peninsula Picnic, because it is going to get bigger and bigger each year.” Adam Not Eve
