The Marysville Sparkling Wine Festival was held over four days during late October / early November. An annual event scheduled to coincide with the running of the Melbourne Cup. The main activities on the Festival calendar are the Australian Sparkling Wine Competition, where the best sparkling wines in a variety of classes are chosen, a Gala Dinner and the wine festival itself held on day Four.
The festival is a day of food, wine and entertainment held on Marysville Central Park, in the main street of Marysville and nestled in the surrounding hills. Sparkling wines, local food and produce can all be sampled. The hills come alive with the sound of live music, fashions on the field and cooking demonstrations.
