An inclusive, family-friendly festival celebrating the best independent producers of beer, cider, wine and spirits on the Mornington Peninsula is coming this October. Peninsula Palooza is a celebration of independent music, artisanal food and craft breweries, distilleries and wineries showcasing the best of the bayside coastal bounty. Prepare for a sensational time from noon-8pm on Saturday, October 5, at Mornington Racecourse.
There’ll be food trucks, kids’ entertainment, brewers’ and distillers’ masterclasses and more, including the opportunity to ‘dunk the brewer’. As well as getting up close and personal with the producers of more than 200 craft beers, ciders and spirits, Peninsula Palooza creates an all-inclusive atmosphere with a low and slow barbecue demonstration and a landmark line-up of eclectic artists that is sure to ignite good vibes and good times for young and old on the grassy knoll. Headliners include Quarry Mountain Dead Rats, The Ben Smith Band, Rob Papp & Brothers In Blues, The Distance, Matt Katsis, Alex Hughes and the Shipfaced Pirates.
Expect live music from 1pm until the close, with roaming entertainers, a 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.
