City of Ryde will re-stage its annual Cork & Fork by the Riverside food and wine festival on Sunday 2 July after the cancellation of the original 21 May event due to dangerous high winds at the Kissing Point Park, Putney, site.

Stall holders, artists and sponsors have been sent invitations to participate in the rescheduled event, with stall holder permit fees to be rolled over to the new date.

Benefits to artists and sponsors will continue to be honoured where practicable.

The rescheduled Cork & Fork - which showcase’s boutique wine from the Mudgee and Hunter Valley regions, locally made spirits, craft beer, food trucks, gourmet food products, bespoke items, and great music - will be staged between 10.00am-4.00pm at Kissing Point Park.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have a new date for one of our most popular annual events,” said City of Ryde Mayor Clr Sarkis Yedelian OAM.

“On behalf of Council, I’d like to apologise for the inconvenience that was caused by the cancellation of the 21 May event. But the on-site safety of community members, stall holders, artists, and sponsors must always come first.”
