Nosh Narrabri has gone from success to success since its inception in 2003.

The 2019 Nosh is in the advanced planning stages now, set down for Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1.

“It is easily the biggest event of its kind in the region” said Nosh president Darrell Tiemens.

“The last Nosh budget was $125,000. This year it will be just under $150,000.

“We will be focusing this year on primary production and the drought.”

The Nosh will comprise the ‘main day’ and the following Long Lunch day.

“During the Nosh day it will be a celebration of all things food and wine and the following day, Sunday, we will stage the famous Long Lunch” said Mr Tiemens.

“This is always sold out.

“Last Nosh we had 300 diners – this year we will have 350 seats available” he said.

“We have thousands of people attending, hundreds from outside Narrabri, to visit the Nosh.”
