Canberra's Street Food Event
The Forage Is a showcase of street food (and other food products) by our local cafes, food trucks, wineries and breweries. Our mission is to give our local businesses (established and new) an opportunity to get creative and showcase and feed our community in a festival style environment.
Bringing everyone together in one location, gives our Canberra community an opportunity to sample what is happening in our city. For our vendors, it gives them a platform to engage with the public and encourage follow on trade. It’s all about feeding back into our local businesses!
This street style food and entertainment event is run seasonally (Three times a year) and is a one of a kind in Canberra. The Forage has a strong commitment to delivering a high quality entertainment program, giving our local musicians/dancers/models exposure and the opportunity to move and groove in front of a live audience. You won’t be disappointed with what The Forage has in store at the up-coming Enlighten Festival from the 11th until the 14th of March 2022.
Since our establishment in April 2014, we have formed strong relationships with our vendors, partners, volunteers, entertainment network and the broader Canberra community. Through this, we have built a foundation that enables us to bring our city together at a unique and creative event.
*please note: although our foundation is built on local businesses, we also think our surrounding regions are really cool too. We encourage those who are regional to be part of our event. This ensures a broader offering for our community and a taste of what can be experienced outside of the Canberra border.*

We call Canberra the ‘capital of collaboration’ and it’s for good reason. You can't get a more collaborative city than this amazing town.
Without the support of our amazing partners, our event simply wouldn't exist. They support, assist and go out of their way to make sure The Forage is top notch! Thank you will never suffice.
