Calling all foodies - FEAST Campbelltown is back.

The Minto festival celebrating food and culture was launched last year to replace Riverfest and proved a great success.

Now back for its second go round, Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic said FEAST would be even better in 2019.

"I think more people definitely know about it now so it will be even bigger this year," he said.

"We have so many cultures in Campbelltown and this is a great opportunity to showcase them.

"Especially in Minto we have a strong sub-continental community, people from Bangladesh, Nepal and India, and this will highlight them alongside our other cultures."

Cr Brticevic said FEAST was a great opportunity to try new foods and get a taste of the many and varied cuisines available in the city.

He said Campbelltown Council was determined to ensure all parts of the city got to enjoy fabulous council run events.

"We're making a big effort to ensure that not everything is in Campbelltown," Cr Brticevic said.

"We've got events in Ingleburn and we held Love Leumeah, and now this one's in Minto.

"An exciting array of foods will be available to tantalise your tastebuds and it will be a fantastic day out for families with plenty of children's activities planned."

The event, which will be held at Redfern Park on Saturday, September 21 from 2pm-9pm, will also feature cultural performances.

Some of the best local Pacific Island and Middle Eastern chefs will give a live demonstration of their cooking prowess and will be on hand to pass on their tips and tricks of the trade.

A variety of food trucks and stalls will also feature at FEAST, while kids can have fun on the children's activity trail between 2pm and 5pm.
