Lismore’s annual celebration of street food and culinary delights, Eat the Street, has won a silver gong at the NSW Tourism Awards.

The food festival was named second in the events category behind the Parkes Elvis Festival, which is a major tourist attraction that has been attracting thousands of fans since it began in 1993.

City Centre Manager Jason Mumford said it was one of those times when you don’t mind coming second.

“I cannot believe some of the competition we beat to take second – it was a really amazing moment when Eat the Street was announced as the silver award recipient,” Jason said.

“The event’s success is testament to the Lismore Business Panel’s vision to develop a major event that activates our CBD by attracting more than 20,000 patrons. It is equally the strong community support that this event has had right from the word go that has made Eat the Street such a success.

“This type of recognition is a real shot in the arm for Lismore and we should all be proud. It also inspires us to build on what we have accomplished and to make Eat the Street not just a great signature event for Lismore, but a signature event for the whole region.”

Jason said the team behind Eat the Street is currently developing new additions for 2018 such as a progressive dinner and local food producer tours to build it into a three-day event.

“Strap in and certainly don’t eat for a week beforehand!” Jason laughed.

“Next year we are going to take Eat the Street to a whole new level.”
