"There'll be an array of restaurants, hands-on food and beverage experiences, live music and more.

"It is one of the most popular events in our program, a food and wine lover's oasis.".

The Gourmet Village is family-friendly - children under 16 will receive free entry all weekend. Western Australia Gourmet Escape, previously known as Margaret River Gourmet Escape.
