About The Truffle Kerfuffle

A Most Indulgent Weekend

The ultimate winter getaway, the Truffle Kerfuffle is a weekend-long food & wine festival in the heart of Australian truffle country, Manjimup, Western Australia.

Join truffle hunters as you unearth the prized truffles, explore the vibrant Festival Village, tasting your way through phenomenal produce & delicacies, all the while sipping on world-class Southern Forests wine. Take your seat at the long table, indulging in truffle laden feasts prepared by some of Australia and the world’s best chefs.

The truffle is the third most expensive ingredient in the world, of which Manjimup is the largest producer in the Southern Hemisphere, with over 20 producing trufferies in the Shire (providing a huge 80% of the annual production). Needless to say, we go through *a lot* in just one decadent weekend.

Truly the most indulgent weekend of the year… ⁠

About Truffle Kerfuffle Inc.

Truffle Kerfuffle is directed by the Truffle Kerfuffle Incorporated Board, a volunteer group of community-minded individuals who bring skills, knowledge and networks to the organisation, collectively working towards producing a world class event that shines a light on the Southern Forests and Valleys region, its produce and revered truffles.

Truffle Kerfuffle was created in 2010 with the aim of bringing together the truffle industry, farmers, producers, wineries and the community to highlight the region’s extraordinary agricultural industry, exceptional produce, tourism experiences, unique forests, landscapes and developing business opportunities.

One of the event’s principal objectives is to promote the truffle industry locally, nationally and internationally to help drive economic activity. It also is lure to bring visitors to the region during the winter season.

Welcome Message from Truffle Keruffle Inc.

from Chairman Jeremy Beissel

Welcome to the 2024 Truffle Kerfuffle festival in the beautiful south west pocket of the Southern Forests, the most prolific truffle growing region in the Southern Hemisphere.

The region, while synonymous with truffles, produces exceptional quality fruit and vegetables, over 50 different kinds. Truffle Kerfuffle is a showcase of the region’s bounty and a dream festival for food lovers.

Events are not possible without partners, sponsors and suppliers who I’d like to sincerely thank for their ongoing support of Truffle Kerfuffle. We are particularly grateful to the small, family-owned local businesses who support and participate. It’s not always easy to take time away from a business, but I’m heartened that they do year in, year out, seeing the value of Truffle Kerfuffle to the economy, liveability and hospitality of this region. It is a mega team effort that we are able to deliver Truffle Kerfuffle and drive tourism into the region each winter.

I’d also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Tourism WA who provide significant financial support through the State Governments Regional Events Scheme.

The volunteer board members of Truffle Kerfuffle Inc, supported by Mellen Events, commit much of their free time, knowledge and skills, to ensure the festival’s success, often whilst running their own businesses. It is an honour to be the chairman of the board and work alongside such a dedicated and talented team.

Truffle Kerfuffle simply would not exist with your support. We are immensely proud of Truffle Kerfuffle and we love seeing people happy and coming together over great food and wine. We can’t wait to welcome you.

We are blessed to call Manjimup home and we’re thrilled you’ve chosen to spend a weekend with us.

Jeremy Beissel, chairman, Truffle Kerfuffle Inc.
