Melbourne, suck it up: those sunny summer days are officially over. Even the sunny autumn days are gone. Goodbye hot weather. It was four degrees when we got up this morning. Melbs, c’mon.
But still, if you're keen to live in weather denial as long as possible, we’ve found the perfect event for you. This weekend, Queen Vic Market is throwing a Taste Of Portugal Festival. Now that’s a country that doesn’t know the meaning of winter (we’re only a little bit bitter).
Forget your winter blues as you get lost in a bright, ass-shaking celebration of all things Portuguese cuisine, music, dance, history, language—you get the picture. You'll be able to eat flaky custard tarts to your heart's content, sign up for a chorizo-making masterclass, catch a traditional live Fado show or dance to some Brazilian samba rhythms. Our hips do not lie.
There’s a bunch of children’s activities taking place throughout the day as well, so rest assured the young’uns will be kept entertained. Meanwhile, you can eat your bodyweight in custard tarts and start planning that mid-winter Portuguese holiday...
When: Sunday 10 June, 9am—4pm
Where: Queen Victoria Market
