The Taste of Kingscliff: Fashion and food festivals

THE Tweed is to add two new events to its festival calendar next year with Kingscliff to stage a fashion and music festival as well as its own food event.

Kingscliff Chamber of Commerce president Jayne Henry, addressing the chamber's monthly breakfast on Tuesday morning, said it would be the first festival in the region highlighting fashion.

"Most events locally are about food and music," said Ms Henry addressing the 50-strong crowd which included Tweed Mayor Barry Longland.

The fashion and music event will be held in April.

The Taste of Kingscliff will take place in December to coincide with the Kingscliff Triathlon and will be cross-promoted at the Tweed Food Festival in November.

The logo, featuring a snapper, was unveiled at the meeting.

"We have a vision to grow our events in the Tweed," Ms Henry said.

"We want to promote the region as a food destination and artistic hub."
