The beating heart and main event of the Taste Port Douglas weekend is without a doubt our vibrant Sheraton Festival Village which runs from 12 noon to 5pm on August 13 and 14.  Over two action packed days, you can indulge in hourly live cooking demonstrations on the Moffat Main Stage by more than twenty revered chefs including Manu Feildel, Colin Fassnidge and Adrian Richardson. 

Festival Village features pop up bars by the region’s best distillers and brewers, local producers, wine tastings, masterclasses, live music and roving entertainment.  

Junior foodies are well catered for with a kid’s program of face painting, watercolour painting classes, yoga and cup cake decorating.  While seasoned foodies can elevate their village experience by participating in a range of expert run masterclasses including a guided tasting with Shaw & Smith owner, David Le Mire MW, Sip & Paint art classes, cocktail classes by local distillers and much more. 

Foodies will feast on the village's 'Gourmet Lawn' all weekend long. Day one of the Festival Village celebrates a feast of pop-up food stalls with a host of guest chefs and local favourite eateries at the helm; while day two switches up to a wood-fired Fat Mango BBQ festival featuring six top chefs (George Calombaris, Aaron Ward, Ben Williamson, Bente Grysbaek, Jake Nicholson, Jerry Mai, Massimo Mele) who bring their flame game to Tropical North Queensland to cook sustainable meats, seafood and vegetables on custom BBQs built by local craftspeople Aussie Campfire Kitchens whilst celebrity chef Colin Fassnidge and legendary butcher Anthony Puharich stoke conversations as roving MCs, answering you firing questions on BBQ styles and philosophies.
