Sure, you’ve been to music festivals, truffle festivals and wine festivals, but have you ever been to a CURRY festival?
Make no plans for Sunday 2 September and tell mum to chuck her roast in the bin. Things are gonna get spicy.
The line-up of vendors ensures it'll be a lick-your-lips kinda day (and we're not just talking about the spice), with Curry Up Now, Delicious Mauritius, Babaji's Kitchen, Taka Taka, Mobile Chakula and Hells Breath all cooking up a storm. Think chicken curries, lamb curries, duck curries and heaps more, spanning Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, even Japan. There’s also veggo options for all you non-meat-eaters, salads, deep-fried treats and a whole bunch of other good sh*t.
Entertainment is taken care of. You can munch on curries while watching Bollywood dance numbers and Mauritian live music. There's also stilt walkers and African drumming. Not enough? What about a singing Sri Lankan chef, because that’s a thing.
If chilli isn't your friend, there's gonna be a lot of milk-based stuff to quench the fire. The whole thing kicks off at 10am on Sunday.
When: Sunday 2 September, 10am - 4pm
Where: Dandenong Market, Clow St & Cleeland Street, Dandenong
