If your idea of a good time includes gourmet bites, live music and a good dose of drinks, you're in luck—there’s plenty for you to check out around town this weekend.
Here are all the best things to do in Perth this weekend.
Sip On A Free Aperol Spritz
There’s no greater way to celebrate easing restrictions and the warmer weather than by sharing a cocktail with your mates. And it’s even sweeter if said cocktail is free. That’s right, the legends at Aperol are slinging 100,000 free Aperol Spritzes this weekend. Simply order a pair of Aperol Spritz to share with a friend at your fave bar or restaurant, and Aperol will cover the cost of one of them up to the value of $20. Picnic-goers, or those that prefer to enjoy a refreshing Spritz at home, can purchase two Aperol Spritz Ready to Serve packs from a bottle shop and redeem one of the packs up to the value of $24. To score your free cocktail, simply register here.
Taste All The Wines At UnWined Subiaco
UnWined Subiaco returns this Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 October, with 200+ boutique wines from 35 wineries to explore. Some of our favourite local breweries and distilleries will also be down for the day (if you somehow manage to overdo it on wine) as well as plenty of yummy food stalls to keep you well fed. Throw down your picnic rug and settle in.
Saturday 23 October
Craft Your Own Gin At This Republic Of Fremantle Masterclass
Odyssea and Republic Of Fremantle are teaming up for an epic gin masterclass where you’ll get to learn all about their award-winning gins, the process behind them and then try your hand at distilling your own bottle to take home. After class soak up those beachside vibes with a few of Oddyssea’s famous cocktails and nibbles from their tasty seasonal share boards. Book online here.
Get Your Hands Dirty At This Clay And Rose Day
Get those creative juices flowing, House Of Hobby is teaming up with Henry Summer for another afternoon of art and drinks. This time, you can get hands-on as you learn how to create beautiful clay ceramics. Everything you need’s included, plus a couple of glasses of wine or sparkling and a gourmet grazing board. Book your seat here before it sells out.
Party In The Vines At Wine Machine
Wine Machine will be going down in the Swan Valley on Saturday 23 October, and with big names like The Avalanches, Hayden James, Hot Dub Time Machine, Ball Park Music, Late Night Tuff Guy, Kinder and your sommelier Jimi The Kween on the bill, not to mention just-announced WA acts like Spacey Jane, you’d be crazy not to grab tickets—especially considering it’s also your last chance to catch Hot Dub Time Machine's iconic closing set, who after five years of fun have said this will be his last Wine Machine.
Sip And Stroll On The Urban Cocktail Trail
Urban Cocktail Trail is taking over Freo this Saturday, so grab final tickets now and prepare to stroll and sip your way through the streets of Freo. The self-paced cocktail adventure will see you hit up some of the port city’s best bars as you delve into all those delicious shaken, stirred, muddles and strained delights on offer.
Be An Ocean Hero At This 80s Beachside Party
Ocean Heroes—a not-for-profit group dedicated to sharing the thrill of surfing with members of the autism community—are kickstarting their new season with a film fundraiser and one helluva 80s beachside party this Saturday at Trigg Surf Club. Throw on some neon and get down for 80s inspired eats courtesy of Daisies and 80s drink prices to match. There’ll be DJs, live music, prizes and more running from 6pm ‘til midnight, and all proceeds will go towards helping more kids with autism get into the water and catch some waves, so get booking.
Wander Through The Summer X Salt Beachside Markets
When the weather starts to heat up, you really can’t beat a morning stroll through the award-winning Summer X Salt beachside markets. This Saturday marks the first of the season at Clarko Reserve, so grab a coffee and get set to explore a cracking line-up of consciously curated coastal-inspired artists and designers, food and drink trucks, live music and more.
Sunday 24 October
Hit Up The Delis x Local & Aesthetic Sunday Spesh
If you’ve been missing Deli’s iconic sandwiches, you’re in luck. The guys are teaming up with their soon to be new neighbours at Local & Aesthetic in Mount Lawley for a little Sunday celebration with good food, good music and of course, good friends. Drop in between 12pm and 3pm to get in on the fun.
Settle In For Sunday Music At Fremantle Arts Centre
Head to the green surrounds of Freo Arts Centre this Sunday for the first of their much-loved Sunday Music series. Running from 2pm to 4pm every Sunday from October to March, they’ll have a handpicked selection of local music acts for you to enjoy under the trees in a chilled picnic-style atmosphere. They’ll have food and drink available for purchase, or you can bring your own. Best of all, entry is free, so just roll up and lay down a rug for the arvo.
Not enough? Here's what's on in Perth this month and beyond.
