From 1st May - 31st of May, we’ve asked our venues to put their best toasties forward! You’ll be able to experience all the flavours and creative combinations during this year’s Plate Up Ballarat season...
Keep yours eyes peeled for our toastie mascot, flags & signature toastie wrap - exclusively designed by local street artist Travis Price.
When you see a Toast Of Ballarat poster in a venue window, head inside to take a bite. We think this new addition to the festival is sure to bring much joy to your tastebuds!
