Chicken & Beer Festival – to be honest this should have happened ages ago.

We’ve had Goon and Nugz Festival, but it’s now time to go full chicken.

Lovers of chicken and beer will be crowing over the announcement that the Chicken and Beer Festival, is coming to Subiaco Market Square for the Long Weekend in late April.

Kicking off Friday evening, 23rd of April, with two sessions on Saturday and a day session to close the festival on Sunday, chicken and beer enthusiasts will be invited to indulge in a fun festival setting complete with music, carnival rides, activities and of course chicken on chicken on chicken.

Chicken & Beer Festival Eats and Drinks

Picture this: all the chicken you can imagine from New Orleans and Korean Fried Chicken to Indonesian, Indian, Soul, Brazilian and Jamaican flavours; prepared and cooked fresh by local Perth establishments and food trucks such as Satchmo, Baolicious, Smokr, Munchy Machine and more.

No doubt that will create a thirst, wash down the tasty chicken eats with a great selection of over 60 beers served ice-cold by some of your favourite craft beer breweries including Pirate Life, Little Creatures, Fat Bull, Whalebone, Good Drinks, Mountain Goat and many more.


Of course, beer won’t be the only choice of drink – there will also be bars exclusively for cider, wine and cocktails.

Vegans and vegetarians are not forgotten either and won’t be left out – some of the festival vendors will be serving up delicious meat-free alternatives!

Chicken & Beer Festival Eats Entertainment

Entertainment options will be aplenty over the weekend. Buskers, big screen broadcasting live AFL games, silent disco for the groovers, carnival rides (dodgem cars and wave swinger), carnival games and garden games for everyone to enjoy. All four sessions are open to all-ages. Entry is free for children under 18, accompanied by a legal guardian. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.
