about the event

Sunday 8 October 2017

Rita’s Longest Lunch will be presented in a style where both the ladies and gentlemen parents, staff and friends of St Rita’s can indulge in their preferred culinary experience along one grand table. Food and wine lovers, contemporary food artisans and those who prefer a home brought hamper will delight in this day out on the Hogan Place of St Rita’s, enjoying time with friends and live music.

In its second year, we want to see dads and mums, aunts and uncles, grandpas and grandmas, neighbours and friends at the party ‘table’. There will be an array of Lucky Door prizes to be won, live entertainment, a bar stocking a selection of beer and wine choices; and the food can be as simple or as grand as your tastes and budgets allow.
