A Festival of all things Marmalade
The 2018 Australian Festival of Marmalade will celebrate the winners of the Australian Marmalade Competition and all things citrus. Come and enjoy Spring in the beautiful grounds of Beaumont House, which will be transformed into a citrus paradise, offering citrus plants for sale, information on Riverland citrus, how to grow citrus and practical demonstrations of cooking with citrus.
Visit the dining room of Beaumont House and see the amazing range of marmalades entered into this year’s competition and attend the presentation of the 2018 Australian Marmalade Awards by our major patron, Jane Hasell-McCosh, of Dalemain Estate, Cumbria, in the United Kingdom, inventor and presenter of the incredibly successful World’s Original Marmalade Awards and Festival UK for over twelve years.
Under marquee cover Riverland citrus guru, Ian Tolley OAM, will talk on how to grow citrus in our own backyards, including some unusual varieties, and will answer all your citrus questions. Culinary Historian, and one of our judges, Allison Reynolds, will give a presentation on Top Tips for marmalade making. There will also be a demonstration of the marmalade making process on hand.
Red Robin Coffee, Retro Refresh food-truck and Beaumont Devonshire Teas will provide all your refreshment needs. Music and a variety of craft and marmalade-themed stalls (including marmalade for sale) will keep you entertained in this beautiful garden.
Cost: Adults $10, Concession $8, NTSA members $7, competition entrants and children 15 and under free.
