A Truffle Affair (cancelled)

  • Bookings required

To our ticketholders,

We have sadly had to make the decision to cancel 'A Truffle Affair' due to the extended Melbourne lockdown. Unfortunately due to the seasonality of truffles, the event isn't suited to a later time in the year. Ticketholders will receive an email from Melbourne Food and Wine Festival (MFWF) to confirm a full refund of your ticket. We thank you all for your support and we hope you can all make it down to the Market in the near future to show your support to our incredible hospitality venues.

Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at smm@portphillip.vic.gov.au.



This event is now sold out!
