Street Eats @ The Jetty – Coffs Harbour
Among just about everything else, COVID-19 has put the bite on food festivals during 2020.
Many still can’t be held but the return of Street Eats @ The Jetty on Saturday is a sign that things are gradually returning to normal. The long wait has seriously tested the patience of Sherry Price, one of the partners in Another Tasty Event, the business that organises many food-themed gatherings on the Coffs Coast.
“We’re beyond excited to be putting on a Street Eats event again, really looking forward to it,” she says.
About 16 vendors will be serving their treats to diners at the Jetty Foreshores, all of them relishing the chance to get back to what they love to do. The ongoing restrictions mean there will be no bar service this time around but the food, live music and the setting give families a few great reasons to get out and enjoy themselves.
“It’s been a hard period for the vendors, and everyone has had to reinvent themselves on what they can do,” Sherry says.
“Unfortunately we are missing a few vendors because of the borders being closed but we’ve picked up a couple of new ones and a lot of the old favourites are going to be there so we’re really excited and hope the weather gods are kind to us.”
Even though it is an outdoor event, there is still the necessity for everyone to follow Covid-safe rules to make the day as safe as it is fun.
“We will have hand sanitisers throughout the event area and we’ve spread out our vendors even though the Jetty Foreshore is a very big space,” Sherry says.
“Obviously if people are in a family group, they can be together, but everyone will need to be mindful of space between people.
“Bring a hat, bring your sunscreen, bring a chair, bring a rug, bring your family, bring your friends, and if you bring a dog, please keep it on a lead.”
When: Saturday, October 31, 4pm-9pm
