Gunnedah's premier food festival, Porchetta Dayis held annually in September. Each year thousands turn out to enjoy a day of fine food, wine and entertainment.
Crowds bask in perfect sunshine to enjoy the tasty foodie delights on offer, including the famous porchetta (roasted pig) – the centrepiece of the festival.
Organisers estimate record crowds of around 5500 people passing through the gates, as they flock to food stalls to enjoy such dishes as home-made gnocchi, lasagne, bruschetta, pork rolls, Italian sausages, pizza, gelato, pasta and desserts, and Italian wine and beer also flowing.
With Italian and European music adding to the atmosphere, festivities like the Kid's pizza making and the new Punch and Judy Show are winners, while the traditional spaghetti eating competition has hungry festival goers eating pasta against the clock.
