THIS is not the time to worry about the waist-line with the Noosa International Noosa Food & Wine Festival kicking off on Thursday.

Over four indulgent days notable chefs and winemakers, industry legends, media personalities, foodies and families will converge in Noosa to celebrate anything and everything culinary.

Most events will take place in the Noosa Heads Lions Park and include celebrity chef cooking demonstrations, culinary and produce exhibitions, riverside picnics, a special mini garden by the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Foundation, forums, debates and a food critics' competition, food from some of Noosa's favourite restaurants and wine from 60 of Australia's top wineries presented in a new village wine marquee.

The entertainment starts on Friday night with performances from PocketLove and Don't Fret before the dynamic Anthony Callea performs.

It continues over the weekend with retro-queens the Fabulous Singlettes, hip Latino band, Martini Club and X Factor Favourites Audio Vixen plus international stars Sneaky Sound System.

The Sunbus shuttle will run from collection points at the Noosa Junction Transit Centre and The J on Friday afternoon from 4.30pm and all day Saturday from 9.30am and 10am on Sunday.

Tickets ($65) can be purchased at the gates on the day.
