Echuca-Moama will once again come alive to the sounds of jazz during the annual Riverboats, Jazz, Food & Wine Festival, which is expected to draw large crowds from 13–15 February 2009.
The unmistakable atmosphere of Echuca-Moama’s heritage and the mighty Murray River will be energised as the air fills with a combination of incredible jazz music, the aroma of gourmet foods and the buzz of happy people relaxing with a glass of delectable local wine.
Festival spokesperson, Rachael Thomas said that the weekend will see a stella line up of bands over the three days, “After going strong for more than 10 years, the 2009 Festival will incorporate several fresh, new elements into what is already an extremely popular regional festival.
“The Festival’s feature event will be Jazz on the Murray @ Morrison’s, a six-hour event which includes a full program of jazz entertainment, mouth-watering local food and wines and family entertainment”. Ms Thomas said.
The 2009 Festival also incorporates the Tisdall Winemaker’s Jazz Dinner, Riverboat Ramble, Oscar W’s Winemaker’s Lunch, Rendezvous at Radcliffe’s, Jazz in the Clubs, the Big Jazz Brunch, as well as a number of winery showcases and a Teddy Bear’s Picnic for the kids.
The Festival celebrates the region’s quality produce, wine and culinary talents, as local chefs and winemakers showcase some of the best tastes the Murray has to offer.
Much of the Festival’s key events are within walking distance from each other, with attendees free to wander through the streets, soaking up the atmosphere and savouring the flavours.
