The biggest Forage ever

HerCanberra Team

Your waistlines have been given a reprieve since August 2016 but it’s now time to get them stretchy pants out of storage for the biggest Forage yet!

We’ve written extensively in the past about our love of The Forage and its unique fusion of street food and drink, music and entertainment, all neatly gathered in the carpark of the Little National in Barton for one delicious afternoon.

This autumn’s Forage will be taking place from 2-7pm on Saturday 8 April, so pop it in your diaries, now.

Because this autumn Forage’s line up is too big to pull into an article, we’re simply going to show you what deliciousness you’re going to experience on the day with a few words that sum up what you can look forward to.

If your mind is blown by the sheer amount of street food you’re looking forward to at The Forage, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

To make the absolute most of your day, why not turn The Forage into a destination foodie staycation? After a full afternoon of full on eating and instead of rolling yourself to your car, you’ll simply take the elevator to your room and relax on Little National’s specially made mattresses while taking in the panoramic views from your window (which takes up one whole wall of every room).

Put a movie on, relax in your Scandinavian-inspired bathroom pull on that fluffy robe. Heaven.

On Sunday, wander downstairs for a light breakfast at Maple + Clove across the road or walk 10 minutes to the lake for a leisurely stroll.
