The second half of the year is well underway (seriously though, where does the time go?). We’re crossing our fingers and toes that the weather is going to be a tad less hectic than what we saw last month, but hey, who knows.
In the meantime, it’s time to start filling your calendar with all the good stuff coming your way. But if you're a little stuck on what to hit up, we've rounded up some of our fave events.
Without further ado, here’s what’s on in Perth this week, this month and beyond.
What's On This Week In Perth
The Prelude: Spring Edition
Wednesday night Executive Chef Tom Haynes will be in the kitchen dishing up new season delights at Cooee at their four-course spring preview dinner. Think raw Abrolhos tuna with fermented chilli and Kununurra mango and lemon myrtle pavlova, all washed down with quality wine and those signature waterfront vistas. It kicks off at 6.30pm, so scoop up final tickets here.
A Most Wonderful Wine Dinner
22 AND 29 SEPTEMBER | RONNIE NIGHTS, FREMANTLE
Ronnie Nights in Fremantle is hosting five glorious five-course wine dinners over five weeks in September, with tickets just $85 +bf each. That'll get you a night of amazing food prepared by new Head Chef Carlos Olivari and paired wines from a different local wine producer each week. There are only 20 seats available each week so get onto it stat.
Lips & Sips
23 AND 30 SEPTEMBER | THE FLOUR FACTORY, PERTH
To celebrate Liptember, the legends at The Flour Factory are whipping up a gintastic set of events—Lips & Sips. Head over to the Flour Factory to create your very own lippy for a good cause—women’s mental health. Kicking things off with a fresh G&T made by the good folk at the bar, blend a series of botanical essences and shades to make your signature lipstick shade, encased in a bespoke Flour Factory case. For just $70pp, play a part in making a change, as $5 from each ticket purchase goes straight back to the charity. If you can’t make the event, head to The Flour Factory for a bespoke G&T as $2 from each of these will also go to Liptember.
The AFL Grand Final
25 September | Perth
Guys, we're actually hosting the official footy grand final right here at Optus Stadium, and if that's not an excuse to go a little footy mad, we don't know what is. If you missed out on tickets (don't worry, same), there are still plenty of ways to get amongst the action. Scope out all the best places to watch the grand final and start organising your crew now.
Gin High Tea
25 SEPTEMBER | THE GARDEN, LEEDERVILLE
Swap your English Breakfast cuppa for a flight of cocktails at this Gin High Tea at The Garden. On Saturday 25 September, you can sip the afternoon away at this popular Leederville hotspot with a flight of six gin and tonic cocktails, complementing your scrumptious high tea. This sought-after event runs from 2pm to 4pm, and it’s best to book in early, as spots usually sell out.
26 SEPTEMBER | STATE BUILDINGS, PERTH
By now you should already be well acquainted with how unbelievably amazing everything in the award-winning State Buildings is, so when you hear they're taking over the whole beautiful heritage building for one fully immersive night of decadence, you scoop up tickets quick. You'll enjoy three hours of free-flowing premium beverages, boujee bites from the likes of Petition, Post and Long Chim and non-stop entertainment, plus, an excuse to get dressed to the absolute nines. If you really want to make a night of it (hint: you do), throw on a night's stay at COMO The Treasury and enjoy reduced rates with the code STAYLONGER.

Over three days in the Swan Valley, Entwined in the Valley will showcase the best food and tipples the area has to offer. More than 25 venues including restaurants and cellar doors will swing open their doors for a weekend of indulgence in the state’s oldest wine region.
