QUEENSLAND Urban Utilities is encouraging Winter Harvest Festival goers to wash down their tasty treats with some fresh, local tap water.

The Festival is the signature event of Eat Local Week and Queensland Urban Utilities spokesperson Michelle Cull said with an array of delicious local produce on offer visitors would be able to sample another local drop.

"Look out for the Urban Utilities team, which will be on site running water refill stations," Ms Cull said.

"Visiting all of the stalls at the festival will be thirsty work so what better complement to the food and wine than some of our tap water.

"Tap water is a healthy beverage choice and a great way to stay hydrated."

Ms Cull said the event showcased producers, suppliers, retailers and chefs from around the region and offered visitors the opportunity to literally eat and drink their way around the Scenic Rim.

"Make sure you bring along your reusable water bottle so you can fill up for free," she said.

"By carrying a reusable water bottle and choosing tap water you'll be playing your part in helping the environment by reducing plastic litter at the event.

"Turning to tap is also good for your hip pocket. While a one litre bottle of water can cost about $3, tap water costs less than one cent per litre."

The Winter Harvest Festival will be held at the Aratula Community Sports Centre on Saturday, July 6.
