We definitely have Christmas on our minds this weekend. You can expect to see us singing along, wrapping around, wandering through and swaying along to all the summer goodness and we highly recommend you do the same.
Here are 12 amazing things to do in Perth this weekend.
Friday 15 September
TWILIGHT HAWKERS MARKETS IN THE CITY
Guys! Tomorrow night is the last night to make it to the Twilight Hawkers Markets this year. They'll be back in 2018 but not until February so you'd better head down there tomorrow night and make the most of it. Click here for details.
DEEP HOUSE VINYASA AT YAB YUM YOGA
Yab Yum Yoga has moved into a new studio which has plenty of room for a bit of a dance party, so they're celebrating with the sixth edition of Deep House Vinyasa. DJ Anonymous Prankster will be spinning beats while you pose and dance up a storm. Get all the info here.

WREATH MAKING WORKSHOP AT FOX & RABBIT
If you’re going to attempt to be crafty at some point in your life, this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. Head to the ever-perfect Fox & Rabbit at the State Buildings on Saturday at 10am and learn the tricks of the wreath making trade. Benefits include gloating in glory every time anyone comes to visit you. Secure your spot here.
INTERIOR DESIGN WALKING TOURS IN FREMANTLE
If you're even a little bit into interior design, you need to get yourself on one of the two interior tours happening this Saturday. The morning tour starts at Leake Street Cafeteria for some of the best coffee in Freo and a quick zip around one of our all time fave stores, The Archive, before a few mystery locations and a gallery where you'll get to watch the artist at work, while the afternoon tour starts at Plata Bonita before hitting a few more interior hot spots and ending at Piggy Food Co for drinks and tacos!
CHRISTMAS MARKET AT PERTH CITY FARM
When the usual suspects from the farmers' markets join forces with locally crafted present ideas, you know it’s going to be a good one. Kicking off bright and early and going through until lunch, Perth City Farm will be going off this Saturday as everyone shops up a storm. Head here for all the details.
BREWERY BATTLE AT CABOOSE BEER BAR
Caboose's genius first birthday celebrations will see a 12 tap brewery battle between Innate, Nowhereman, Blasta and Feral and you’re the judge! Burgers, ping pong and Nintendo are just added bonuses from 2pm. Check out all the info here.
SYMPHONY IN THE CITY AT LANGLEY PARK
WASO is ensuring our December is full of picnic baskets, plastic wine glasses and Puccini and we couldn’t be more into it. Set yourself up on Langley Park this Saturday for a night under the stars listening to our blissful orchestra pump out all the treasures. Click here for all the finer details.
TASTE DON’T TOUCH FRIDAYS AT GAZETTE
Gazette has singlehandedly figured out the way to our heart: $10 Aperol Spritz. Nothing says summer more than a goblet of sparkling orange deliciousness (except maybe drinking it in Capri but hey, we can’t have it all). Head to Print Hall tomorrow,b read all about it here.
Sunday 17 December
CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT AT LANGLEY PARK
To do this week: learn the lyrics to Little Drummer Boy, Do You Hear What I Hear? and O Come All Ye Faithful because we all know they are the best ones and we plan to belt them out this Sunday for Variety (consider this your warning). Get all the info here.
PERTH MAKERS MARKET IN APPLECROSS

THE EAST POINTERS AT FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE
If three Canadians doing their thing on the fiddle, banjo and guitar sounds like your idea of a Sunday arvo in paradise then Freo Arts Centre is where it’s at! It’s free, in the front garden and starts at 2pm. Click here for all the details.
A WINE AFTERNOON AT DRIFT KITCHEN
Spend your Sunday afternoon drinking the pink stuff at Drift Kitchen as they take you through the second instalment of their tasting series. This weekend it's all about rosès from Australia and France. Yes please. Get the details here.
