From little things big things grow is the perfect way to describe the Numurkah Foodbowl Festival, which returns again this October with a jam-packed lineup of entertainment, food and community.

The festival began in 2007 and has grown thanks to the tireless work of the committee and a dedicated team of volunteers.

Festival director Jamie Lea said the weekend would have something for everyone.

"We're really proud of how the Foodbowl Festival has been received by the community and by visitors, and we love seeing so many people coming into Numurkah to see what we have to offer," she said.

"It's a great example of what regional towns can do when there's passionate people involved and a vibrant community."

Food, wine, theatre and live music are once again on the menu, with the weekend kicking off on Friday October 14 with a pop-up gallery along Melville St. Then there's the chance to wind down at the Monichinos and Music event at the Numurkah Golf and Bowls Club, featuring wine tasting and music by Michael Brennan.

Saturday will kick off with the Lions Market and a Trash and Treasure market, and community celebrations and festivities in Melville St.

A free skate workshop will be held by OwnLife Boarding, along with live music from all around the region at the Youth Stage and Skate Competition.

Saturday night will feature the all-you-can-eat Rhythm and Brews Chilli Fiesta, a Rock & Roll night at the Wunghnu Tavern, Mediterranian Food Night at the Numurkah Hotel, Parmas of the World at Waaia Hotel, and family friendly movies in Numurkah Town Hall.

Sunday will kick off with a Food Swap at Newman Square, and the return of the hugely popular Long Slow Brunch on the Broken Creek.
