Spicy news: James St Food + Wine Trail Returns this July!

And just like that James St Food + Wine Trail (JSFWT) is back.

Calling all the gourmands, feeders, family, friends and people that just like to eat – our food community will reclaim the street with four days of food, drink and fine times from Thursday 27 – Sunday 30 July 2023. 

Our neighbourhood is undeniably home to the densest collection of Queensland’s (and we think Australia’s) most celebrated and awarded restaurants and venues – all in one place. In July every year, this impressive food fraternity of great chefs, charming restaurateurs and many very good eggs unite to make our food fantasies come true. 

How does it work? JSFWT is split in two parts:

The prelude: TRAIL DAYS – Thursday 27, Friday 28, Saturday 29 July 2023

Three delicious days of programming, when the experts step into action with in-venue events including one-off champagne menus, pizza parties, live DJ sets, long lunches, cook ups, limited-edition products and exclusive rooftop events in and around James St venues. Note, some activities are ticketed, some are available first-come-first serve and some are open for you to turn up and dig in. 

The main event: MARKET DAY – Sunday 30 July 2023

Over 7,500 square metres of our prime street, laneways, gardens and outdoor spaces from McLachlan to Arthur St makes way for alfresco fine dining, live entertainment, kids activities and spontaneous dance parties in the sunshine. This is the one day of the year when our James St’s top chefs and mixologists all step out of the kitchen and onto the street to collectively serve the community one giant feast. Market Day is free to enter and open for all to enjoy.

We are hungry and excited… and judging by the calls, comments and emails you are too, with some eager attendees already scheduling an RDO on the Monday following Market Day.

We love a plan – plan your JSFWT now via the full event schedule here.
