Noosa Eat & Drink Festival to return in 2024


The Noosa Eat & Drink Festival is set to return in 2024 for the first time since the pandemic.

Set to run on May 30 to June 2, the festival will feature its signature events including a Long Lunch, beachfront events on Noosa’s Main Beach, a plethora of restaurant events and the return of the Festival Village.

The festival will also welcome back a line-up of celebrity chefs who will be doing cooking demonstrations in the festival village, and hosting lunches and dinners in Noosa’s restaurants.

“We are so pleased to have the festival returning, in its full capacity, in 2024,” said Tourism Noosa’s Acting CEO Susan Ewington.

“The event has been a highlight on Noosa’s event calendar for more than 20 years and we look forward to welcoming festival visitors back to Noosa.”

Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe welcomed the return of one of the Sunshine Coast’s most well-known events, saying it is expected to support more than 12,000 bed nights.

“The Noosa Eat & Drink Festival is an absolute favourite on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar and it’s terrific that this iconic event is back in 2024, I’m sure even bigger and better than ever before,” Hinchliffe said.
