Host an Event

Truffle Melbourne creates and manages a series of events throughout the winter truffle season, and in 2017 we're inviting chefs, restaurateurs, venue managers, producers - people in the industry with a passion for truffles and their associated pleasures - to propose event suggestions for inclusion in the 2017 Festival Program.

Potential events may include truffle themed lunches, dinners (even breakfast or brunch!); product releases; roof-top parties; pop-ups at unusual venues (trams, boats, trains, planes!); competition events; travel packages (transport, meals, entertainment, perhaps at a vineyard or other regional venue); a brewery truffle event or event packages linked with other experiences. The only limit is your imagination!

We have an engaged audience that is looking for special truffle experiences. And this audience covers all price points- from $350 dinners at Vue de monde to a $25 truffle taste and drink. Most events last year were a sell-out, and all reached their minimum target guest numbers.

If your event is selected for inclusion in the program, we work with you to bring it to fruition. Truffle Melbourne's fee structure is fair, transparent and simple- making participation affordable and accessible.

  • 50 word listing and photo on Truffle Melbourne website with your logo and link to your website
