SATURDAY is set to be one of the tastiest occasions on the Fraser Coast calendar, with Relish Food and Wine Festival taking over Queens Park and the Mary River Parklands.

Relish - a celebration and promotion of local food and produce - was created to complement the annual Pub Fest extravaganza.

It's a not-to-be-missed event for Fraser Coast foodies and beverage lovers.

At 2pm, there will be a live cook-off between Dan and Steph Mulheron and ex-international meat guru Fraser Coast Regional Councillor Darren Everard, adjudicated by well-known chef Alastair McLeod.

To view the Relish Photography Exhibition, visit Gatakers Artspace, and there will be a Relish photography booth at the Banyan tree.

The family-friendly day also will have children's activities, including grassy work and junior chef, at the Mary River Parklands.

Heritage Gateway Museums will open in Wharf St, the Customs House Interpretive Centre from 11am - 2pm, the Bond Store Museum from 11am - 5pm and the Maryborough Military and Colonial Museum will also open.

Other events include the free music in the court yard, held at Janet's Art on Kent St, from noon until 1pm.

Witches Abroad will be on at 2pm and 7.30pm at the Brolga Theatre. Tickets are $30.
