After forcing to close literally hours before opening due to Perth's snap 3-day lockdown then forcing to postpone again due to heavy rain, Perth's first ever Chicken and Beer Festival is FINALLY going ahead and we're already licking our fingers in anticipation. Mark your diaries, the fun kicks off from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 June at a brand new undercover location—Robinson Pavilion at the CLaremont Showgrounds.
With four awesome sessions over the weekend, you can stroll around the grounds while feasting on every sort of chicken your heart desires and knocking back a few frothies.
We're already drooling over all the wonderful chicken-y delights on offer, from New Orleans and Korean fried chicken to yummy bites from Indonesia, India, Jamaica and more. Don’t stress if you aren’t a carnivore, plenty of vendors will be offering up mouthwatering vego and vegan options too.
Hopheads, we haven't forgotten about you. You'll find a fabulous selection of over 60 beers from breweries such as Pirate Life, Balter, Colonial Brewing Co (and many many more), to wash down all that delicious chicken. If beer isn’t for you, there’s also going to be bars dedicated to cider, wine and cocktails (plus alcohol-free drinks for the little ones).
Still not enough? Well, how about carnival games and rides, bumper cars, and a silent disco for all you party people out there. Don’t forget that they’re also showing the footy on giant screens too, so you won’t miss out on anything.
Tickets for the new dates are available for purchase now. If you've already got tix, they'll be automatically transferred to the new sessions.
