What exactly is a food warrior? Find out at the 2015 Hampton Festival when we introduce guest presenters Rohan Anderson and Kate Berry, the dynamic duo behind the popular food blogs Whole Larder Love and Lunch Lady. Rohan and Kate grow, gather, hunt and cook in rural Victoria and will offer an insight into their grassroots lifestyle. They'll be followed by Festival fav Dominique Rizzo, who is planning to cook up a pure food storm with a Sicillian flourish. Drop by the Food Tent and get a taste of the good life.

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 2015 we're thrilled to introduce some new features to our arts lineup including a display of mini canvases, Art in the Park, and a broader focus on performing and other artistic pursuits. There'll be the usual mix of rootsy music 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 ingredients for your dinner and have a chat to local growers while you're at it.
