An inclusive, family friendly festival celebrating the best independent producers of beer, cider, wine and spirits on the Mornington Peninsula is coming this October.
A one-day celebration of independent music, artisanal food and craft breweries, distilleries and wineries showcasing the best of the bayside coastal bounty.
There’ll be food trucks along eat street, kids entertainment, brewers and distillers masterclasses and more, including the opportunity for the kid at heart to ‘dunk the brewer’.
As well as getting up close and personal with the producers of over 200 craft beers, ciders and spirits from the region.
Peninsula Palooza creates an all inclusive atmosphere with a low and slow BBQ demonstration and a landmark local lineup of eclectic artists that is sure to ignite good vibes and good times for young and old on the grassy knoll.
Local headliners include Quarry Mountain Deadrats, The Ben Smith Band, Rob Papp & Brothers In Blues,The Distance, Matt Katsis, Alex Hughes and the Shipfaced Pirates.
Expect live music from 1pm til close, roaming entertainers, live radio broadcast, door prizes, raffles and more.
Feast on a grazing platter from an assortment of producers of cheese, cured meats and breads and wash it down with a tasting paddle.
Your early bird $25 ticket includes your own festival cup to reduce your carbon footprint and a tasting paddle from the sample bar.
The brainchild of Jetty Road Brewery and headed up by former venue operators Nick and Kat O’Brien, the event has come to fruition organically from the opportunity to support and showcase a region of independent producers.
“We just realised that the Mornington Peninsula needed something like this. It’s a natural progression for us with no offering in this space on the Mornington Peninsula that celebrates the increasing number of artisan producers.” said Nick.
“The Peninsula Palooza is a chance to celebrate the cultural richness of the great range of independent producers that we have right here” continued O’Brien.
Limited early-bird tickets are available from now until late August from Tixstar.
Peninsula Palooza with be held from 12pm-8pm on Saturday, 5th October at the Mornington Racecourse.
