Two events that are expected to attract foodies from far and wide will be staged at Munro Martin Parklands (MMP) later this year.
About 2000 people are expected to attend the Cairns Food and Wine Festival, which will showcase locally produced food and beverages.
The ticketed event will be on Saturday 9 October, from 4pm to 10pm.
The following weekend, MMP will host Backyard Makeover Eat Street, a not-for-profit, family-friendly, public event by The Doctor Edward Koch Foundation.
The event will include a variety of vendors selling food, an expo of non-profits showcasing their work in the mental health, entertainment activities and a family friendly film.
Funds raised will be directed into the foundation’s Backyard Makeover Program, a volunteer group that aims to improve mental, social and physical outcomes for residents and community organisation through backyard makeovers.
The resolutions above need to be ratified at the next Ordinary Meeting of Council, to be held on 28 April 2021.
