Perth to get first ever cocktail festival in February at Crown Parklands

Loading ....

Perth is about to get shaken and stirred by the first dedicated cocktail festival to hit the city.

The festival — that will descend on the Crown Parklands next month — will be the State’s biggest “salute to the art of cocktail making”.

Event directors Richard Giorgi and Ben Drew are keeping a glass half full mentality by forging ahead with their inaugural event, despite other bashes like Origin Fields and Factory Summer Festival pulling out of the summer calender due to increased COVID-19 related measures.

“We have been working on the concept (of the festival) for a long time now…it is all about producing a quality experience in a gorgeous outdoor setting,” Giorgi told AAA.

“We’re a food and wine style event, as opposed to a music festival, which means we have smaller crowds, less density and we don’t have stages or focus points for people to gather.”


Punters will be treated to a smorgasbord of 18+ sideshows — including an espresso martini land, pop-up restaurants and the city’s best mixologists showing off their insta-worthy concoctions.

While many missed out on an overseas vacation this summer, Drew said they hoped to bring a dash of wanderlust by “showcasing the best cocktails from around the world”.

Festival goers will be transported from Japan, to Mexico and on to the Caribbean thanks to a Sakura saloon, tiki playground and a tequila and taco stand.


But it’s not all face glitter and boozy beverages —- Giorgi and Drew have also promised a garnishing masterclass for those wanting to level up their next dinner party.

“We’re catering to all levels of cocktail makers, novices will learn how to burn and twist orange rind for that perfect Negroni, and pros can delve into the art of sensory pairing between food and cocktails.”

Perth’s first dedicated cocktail festival will take place from February 26 to 28.
