Meadow loves local

Meadow prides itself on its inward-looking, outward-thinking localised offerings, with everything from the music, the food and drink stalls, film screenings, tree-planting program and volunteers all hand picked and carefully curated to support and celebrate Australian artists, voices, initiatives and businesses.

With a particular focus on promoting local vendors from the Surf Coast region, the festivals 2022 food and drink offerings include:

Pete’s Woodfired Pizza (Aireys Inlet), Perla Tacos (Torquay), Tin Can Alley Cafe (Lorne), Gypsy Burger (Torquay), Little Things Big Things Coffee (Torquay), Salt Brewing Company (Aireys Inlet), Heroes Vineyard (Pennyroyal), Great Ocean Road Gin (Aireys Inlet), Dinny Goonan Wines (Bambra), and Livewire Wines (Bellarine Peninsula), with festival favourites Hulms Pies (Colac) available at the bar alongside drink specials Wild Blackberry Negroni, Escape To The Country, and Nan’s Spicy Marg.

Local Otways artist from the small regional town of Gerangamete, Watty Thompson has taken out Meadow’s annual local band competition thanks to ForteWatty will have the pleasure of opening the festival’s proceedings with the first live set on Friday afternoon.

The sensory abundance wouldn’t be complete without the return of Meadow’s exclusive small screen cinema Glow Relaxo, presenting a wondrous selection of Australian short films.
