Melbourne, get your muscles on and muscle along to the fourth annual mussel festival. Hosted by South Melbourne Market, the weekend-long event is promised to boast five tonnes (that’s 5000 kilograms for the mathematically challenged) of delicious fishy goods. Be shellfish, there’s enough to go around after all.
Running the weekend before Labour Day over 11 and 12 March, you’ll have Monday to recover from post-mussel feast soreness. Live jazz music and plenty of wine (a must on any weekend, so mussels warrant a few extra glasses) are promised to accompany plump mussels from Port Phillip Bay.
Prepare for a cracking, shucking and slurping good time.
When: Saturday 11 March & Sunday 12 March
Where: South Melbourne Market
