Lilly Street Lasagne Bake Off | Saturday 25 November
Lilly Street, Fremantle
If you think you’ve got what it takes to win a lasagne-baking contest, here’s your shot. The residents of Lilly Street hold a lasagne competition every year, which the whole street gets closed off for, making it one big lasagne party. If you don’t live on Lilly Street though, fret not—there is an Off-Lilly Street category where non-residents can enter, as well as an Out Of The Box category, for anyone who has a unique quirky twist on the traditional lasagne. Click here for more details.
Etsy Made Local Market | Saturday 25 November
State Theatre of WA
Etsy Made Local will be hitting the Perth Cultural Centre for another glorious year. Featuring a multitude of stalls from talented WA Etsy sellers, live music, a pop up bar and a brilliant festive vibe, this is your annual celebration of all things WA handmade. To find out more click here.
