Donna Hay's Food + Wellness Festival launches in Bondi

Get set for a weekend of good eating and fitness at an iconic Bondi location

Celebrity cookbook author and television personality Donna Hay is bringing a three-day festival to Bondi.

The Food + Wellness Festival will be held in the beachside Bondi Pavilion from Friday October 11 to Sunday 13.

The festival will be a celebration of the good life, offering pilates classes, fresh produce markets from Kurrawong Organics, cooking workshops, cookbook signings, bottle-your-own olive oil stations, organic seedling giveaways, sunset drinks and free coffee all weekend.

“This three-day event is essentially my approach to food and how I try to live in this beautiful city of ours,” says Hay. “The guys at Kurrawong Organics helped create my vegetable garden at home, and the dishes we’ll be serving up are all about using food to refuel and re-energise. There’ll be a few treats too, of course. I’m all about balance.”

The event is free, although some events such as the Sunset Drinkssessions, hosted by Cloudy Bay wines, with matching canapés by Hay, are ticketed.

Vittoria organic coffee will be offered all weekend, for free for a gold coin donation that will go to the Two Good social enterprise scheme.
