James St Food & Wine Fest 2022

The annual James St Food & Wine Trail (Brisbane) is coming back to Fortitude Valley this Sunday 31st July, with the best local restaurants, wine and all things fine.

We’ll be front and centre at market day, selling custom gelato bars from our stall — whilst you stroll around enjoying Dj’s, children’s entertainment… living your best life. You'll be able to visit thirty two gourmet market stalls selling local food, wine and cocktails — so make sure to arrive hungry and thirsty.

This year we're rolling out a gelato bar menu, featuring two crowd-pleasing assortments based on every kid's favourite chocolate bars.

Salted caramel gelato and chocolate fudge, coated in a milk chocolate and rice bubble rocher glaze
