Cittaslow Goolwa Smoke Off Festival 2018

The Festival will be held on Sunday 4 November 2018 on the RSL Goolwa lawns.

The Festival includes the annual Smoke Off competition, tastings and sales from major Langhorne Creek wineries, plenty of great food from local food producers and, of course, marvelous music from top local band Matt and the Maniacs.

Central to the day is the Smoke Off competition. This involves teams of local people who, using BBQs or other devices, smoke hams or other foods in a competition that is judged by local personalities. The teams judged as having the best smoked food are awarded prizes and trophies. In addition, some teams adopt various themes, set up colourfully decorated marquees and dress in appropriate costumes in support of those themes.

Entry is now open for teams wishing to be involved in the Smoke Off competition. An expression of interest form with full details is available here.

More information will be posted on this site as details are finalised. Contact is Michael Keen on 0402 896 049 or at

It promises to be a great day and a lot of fun. Put the date in your diary – Sunday November 4.
