The deadline to book tickets for this year’s Wine & Food In The Park festival launch dinner has been extended to Friday, March 10.
Bookings were originally planned to close on Monday, but on Tuesday organisers decided to extend the deadline a further three days.
The reason for the extension is that they have over-catered for the evening.
“We originally planned to have 100 guests and we will be catering for that many people,” dinner organiser Dianne Hannant said.
“But dinner bookings have stalled in the past few days, which means we now have too much food.”
The evening, which will be held at the South Burnett Machinery Club shed on Geoff Raph Drive at Kingaroy Airport, will feature live entertainment by international artist Sue Ray and her father Owen, one of the founders of the Countdowns.
Guests will also get to enjoy an exotic 19-course meal of continuous canapes prepared from local produce by award-winning South Burnett chef Mike Giles.
And South Burnett wines will be available all evening along with beers, spirit mixers and soft drinks.
Dress will be optional cocktail attire, and the Machinery Club’s shed will be specially decorated for the occasion.
There’ll also be vintage cars in the grounds for guests who’d like to be photographed with them.
Tickets to the dinner are $90 per head, but group bookings for 10 are now also available at a discounted price of $72 per head.
“We’d hate to waste any of this gorgeous food,” Dianne said.
“So anyone who makes a group booking before Friday can get a 20 per cent discount for helping us out.”
Tickets for the dinner can be booked online.
