The time has finally come – summer is on its way and it’s promising long hot days, endless celebrations, and plate after plate of delicious food paired with incredible beverages of all kinds.
There’s a lot to love about summer, especially if you’re a foodie or a beer and wine aficionado, as there are multiple fantastic food and wine events in Perth to look forward to.
Here are three of the best Perth events this summer, so lock in a ticket now because you can start counting down the days.
Western Australia Gourmet Escape
When: November 8 – 14, 2019
The Gourmet Escape is a national treasure, and it’s arriving in Western Australia on November 8 to kick off the summer season of food events. While the WA leg runs from the 8th until the 17th, the Perth events will all fall between the 8th and the 14th.
The key event on the calendar is the Gourmet Feast in the Valley, during the weekend of November 9 & 10 at Sandalford Estate. This event is all about celebrating gourmet meals, with a huge variety of wining and dining options, including an open fire for BBQ fans, and countless food trucks, making it a top food and wine festival in Perth.
There will also be live music and children’s entertainment, and shuttle buses running to and from the event from the Guildford train station to help get you there.
Sunset Wine & Brews
When: February 9 & 10, 2020
Where: Scarborough Beach Reserve, The Esplanade
Sunset Wine & Brews is one of those Perth events where you hardly need more than the name to convince you to nab a ticket.
Sip on some of Western Australia’s best wines, ciders, craft beers, and spirits as you watch the sun go down to the sound of awesome live music. There will also be gourmet food on offer, and gorgeous sunny weather is practically guaranteed.
A general entry ticket includes your entrance fee, a tasting glass, and complimentary beer as well as wine tastings. However, take a look at the Plumm ticket for an extra special souvenir wine glass.
Children under 18 enjoy free entrance.
South West Craft Beer Festival
When: February 16. 2020
Drive a couple of hours south down the spectacular Western Australia coastline to Busselton for this small-town festival with a big heart.
Craft beer will be the star of the show, with more than 120 to try from over 20 local breweries. That said, you’ll also find gourmet food, wine, and cider, making it the perfect destination event this summer.
Your $20 ticket includes admission, as well as your beer glass. Plus, you can look forward to live music throughout the day.
Don’t forget that you don’t have to wait for major events to enjoy mouth-watering meals in Perth. The Perth food markets, like the Fremantle Markets and Vic Park Farmers Market, offer tasty fresh morsels every week, and here at The Meat & Wine Co in Perth, you can taste incredible fare every day of the week.
