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 Growers on the Green precinct to see, taste and experience how your food is produced.
art and music
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 always has an exciting line up of great artists. Experience one of the hands-on food and art workshops and new initiatives for 2019! The Festival encourages young artists and musicians who feature in the Art and Growers on the Green precincts. Enjoy a great mix of live 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 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, as well as a few treats, and have a chat with the local growers while you're at it.
Message from Minister for Tourism Industry Development, The Honourable Kate Jones MP
Welcome to the Hampton Festival 2019, set in the heart of Southern Queensland Country. This family-friendly festival celebrates all things local and offers visitors a taste of the laidback country lifestyle with some great local produce and music.
The Queensland Government supports the Hampton Festival and other key events because of the $800 million they contribute to our economy. Regional events mean regional tourism jobs – which are only created because you and thousands of other people have turned up to explore.
Thank you to the event organisers, volunteers, and supporters who have delivered this great event. I hope during your stay you can enjoy some of Southern Queensland Country’s unique tourism experiences, which I’m sure will leave you with some amazing Queensland memories.
The Hon. Kate Jones, MP
Minister for Tourism Industry Development
