Whats On This Winter
PLENTY TO ENJOY AT CASEY CORNUCOPIA
Immerse yourself in a phantasmic artscape to tantalize the senses at the Casey Cornucopia, part of the city’s Winter Arts Festival.
From June 25th to July 17th, 2022, Bunjil Place will be transformed into an intriguing wonderland celebrating local produce. The Cornucopia Garden, designed in collaboration with Bompas and Parr, will lead you through an exhibition of oversized sculptures amidst a world-first swirling edible mist.
Tempt your tastebuds at the Cornucopia’s pop-up market stall food hub. Featuring culinary delights from across Casey-Cardinia, the hub also offers a rare opportunity to meet local farmers and growers, artisans, sustainability experts and artists who will be hosting daily talks, demos, samples and workshops.
Book a tour to go behind the scenes and learn how the Cornucopia was created, as well as getting an inside look into how our local food is grown and produced. Go in for a once-in-a-lifetime experience with the Immersive Dinner, to be held on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd of July, bringing together the whimsical delights of the festival along with music and performance.
