With this year's event attracting record crowds to the Central Coast's hinterland region, Central Coast Council is looking for new event partners to join the Harvest Festival success story in 2022.

Council Director Community and Recreation Services Julie Vaughan said expressions of interest are now open for local businesses, groups and organisations to become a 2022 Harvest Festival event hub partner.

"A celebration of the Coast's spectacular hinterland communities, Harvest Festival has become a much-loved fixture on the Central Coast event calendar and continues to grow from strength to strength," Ms Vaughan said.

"With this year's festival drawing more than 48,000 locals and visitors to 29 event hubs over the June long weekend, the event provides a significant boost to our region's economy as well as excellent exposure and patronage for participating event partners.

"We're keen to continue to evolve our relationship with existing partners and invite new businesses and groups to further enhance this celebration of farms, food, friends and fun!"

The Harvest Festival event trail features a diverse range of experiences and activities across eight of the Coast's hinterland communities - Dooralong, Jilliby, Yarramalong, Kulnura, Mangrove Mountain, Peats Ridge, Somersby and Calga.

Expressions of Interest are sought across a range of offerings, including but not limited to:

  • ticketed farm tours and talks
  • pick your own produce experiences
  • tours and talks
  • Indigenous cultural experiences and bush tucker tours
  • art events and installations
  • live music events
  • family fun events
    cooking demonstrations
  • food experiences with local produce
  • obstacle course races/fun runs.

Council Administrator Rik Hart said Harvest Festival is brought to life by the unique experiences, tours and events offered by event partners.

"After a very successful event in 2021, which injected close to $6 million into the local economy, Central Coast Council is looking forward to the return of the much-loved Harvest Festival in 2022," Mr Hart said.

"The event shines a spotlight on the Central Coast's spectacular hinterland communities, as well as on the region's fantastic local produce, venues and experiences.

"Harvest Festival would not be possible without the contribution of local businesses, organisations and community groups and we look forward to seeing how we can continue to enhance this popular winter highlight."

Businesses, companies, organisations or community groups interested in being part of Harvest Festival in 2022 can complete an Expression of Interest by Monday 13 September 2021.
