We love good food! The Hampton Festival started championing fine fare made from local ingredients long before the arrival of TV cooking shows and celebrity chefs. We're glad to see that the rest of Australia is catching up, and food is being put firmly in its rightful position as one of the most important aspects of our lives and the broader culture. Check out the Festival's wide range of food vendors, wineries, cafes and artisan producers, and head over to the Chef's Tent to see popular TV identity, Hayden Quinn, cook up a gastronomic storm.

The Hampton area is a rich breeding ground for artists, who draw from the area's natural beauty to inspire a diverse range of work. The Hampton Art Exhibition pays special tribute to our local creatives, and in 2016 we're thrilled to introduce some new features to our arts lineup including a display of mini canvases, Artists in Residence, and a broader focus on performing and other artistic pursuits. There will be a great mix of live music, headed up by 'The view from Madeleine's Couch', to enjoy while sampling food and wine, plus plenty more to inspire!
One of the underlying aims of the Hampton Festival is to foster a thriving farming culture in the "high country" north of Toowoomba. To this end, we're proud to support our farmers and edible gardeners by offering their goodies for sale at our ever-popular Community Produce Stall, in our cooking demos, and at our diverse range of market stalls. You'll find a cornucopia of fresh produce, eggs, honey, preserves, bread and much more. Call past, grab your ingredients for dinner and have a chat with some local growers while you're at it.
