Saturday 28 July, Olympic Parade, Bankstown will be transformed into a foodie heaven with dozens of stallholders lining the street to cook food from around the world.
My Kitchen Rules judge,
Colin Fassnidge, will headline the festival as its celebrity chef.
He will carry out three cooking demonstrations and share his culinary secrets, as he prepares some mouthwatering cuisine.
City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor,
Khal Asfour, said the event, now in its 14th year, would be unmissable.
"Bankstown Bites is always a fantastic day out for the whole family and I encourage everyone to come along," he said.
"Whether you want delicious food from Canterbury-Bankstown and the greater Sydney area, fun rides for kids or to see professional chefs in action, Bankstown Bites will be the place to be."
Bites Food Tours will also return this year, where groups will be escorted around Bankstown to receive samples from the best food joints in town. Bookings can be made by clicking on the button in the Food Tours section below.
New to the festival will be the
'Spice it Up' area, outside Bankstown Arts Centre, which will feature spicy-themed performances and activities.
Last year, more than 10,000 turned up to the event.
Mayor Asfour said it was one of the best Bites festivals ever held, with this year expected to be even bigger and better.
"I am proud we’re able to feature some of the City’s top restaurants every year and not only show our residents, but also people far and wide, just how incredible the food scene is here in Canterbury-Bankstown," Mayor Asfour said.
