Truffle Kerfuffle

Festival Village

22 to 23 June 2019

An all weekend celebration of one of the world's most luxurious ingredients, fresh black truffle. The Festival Village is the vibrant hub of Truffle Kerfuffle weekend; a unique chance to indulge in black truffles at their freshest, minutes from where they are unearthed.

10am - 5pm Saturday and Sunday

The Festival Village at idyllic Fonty's Pool is the place to smell, taste, buy and learn about black truffle and Southern Forests wine and produce. Explore and taste your way through the regional marketplace, buy fresh truffles and gourmet products, sample Southern Forests wine, cider and produce, and dig into delicious truffle-laden food. You'll meet and learn from farmers, truffle growers, winemakers and talented chefs, enjoy live music, cooking and truffle dog demonstrations. Feeling lucky? Try your hand at a game of bocce or tombola for a chance to win fresh truffle. Bringing the kids? We have family activities including a kids truffle science station and the Kids Cooking School with Sophie Budd.

Your Festival Village Ticket includes all weekend repeat entry plus a wine tasting glass and tote bag to stash your goodies! Build your experience by booking add-on experiences like truffle hunting, dining events and food and wine masterclasses.

No Festival Village ticket required if you are attending a Brunch, Chef's Cabin or staying at Fonty's Pool Chalets & Campground, Soul Camping or WA Wilderness Glamping.


Tickets on sale now.
