Westfield Belconnen Truffle Festival Market Day

Westfield Truffle Festival Market Day will be held on 24 June at Westfield Belconnen featuring cooking demonstrations from local chefs, wine tastings, truffle hunt demonstrations, local market stalls, food sampling and free kids’ activities.

The ultimate foodie festival, now in its 9th consecutive year, is anchored in the high-quality produce and climate of the Canberra region. As principal partners, both Westfield ACT centres will transform into a truffle wonderland, focusing on the region’s fresh Black Winter Truffle. At shoppers can learn from Canberra’s top truffle farmers and taste their produce. 

Festival spokesperson and truffle grower, Damian Robinson said “We want to encourage more people to try truffle. The events at each centre will make truffles accessible to everyone and showcase simple and delicious ways that people include this special ingredient in their everyday cooking!”

The market day will be the perfect day out for families to experience the festival with free kids’ activities, face painting, balloon bending as well as ‘truffle talks’ where visitors can watch truffle dogs in action on a truffle hunt.

The Westfield Truffle Festival Market Days are held as part of the Canberra Region Truffle Festival, which is held from 1 June to 31 August throughout the greater Canberra region.

The market days will include chefs and personalities from the following Canberra region establishments; Pialligo Estate, Mount Majura Vineyard, Blue Frog Truffles, Pasta Queen, Contentious Character, Macenmist Black Truffles and Wines, Foodish, Turalla Truffles, Poachers Pantry, Wily Trout Vineyard and Tarago Truffles.
