We love food just as much as we love music, so it’s pretty exciting to see the Peninsula Picnic returning in 2016 with another huge line up of delicious food, diverse wines and of course, great live music. The Mornington Peninsula has always been known as a hot spot for food and wine & the lovely people behind The Peninsula Picnic know how to throw an event – so how could you go wrong?

This year’s event will be held on March 20th and will feature wines from the likes of Montalto, Crittenden Estate & Paringa, as well as a butt load of food stalls to keep you well fed throughout the day; we recommend DOC or Max’s but the list is endless. And of course, once again, visitors will be treated to some fresh, live music from the likes of Darren Middleton, Missy Higgins, Timberwolf, Kim Churchill and Ruby Whiting! Full line up of it all down below – see you there!
