Introducing the inaugural Canberra Beer, Wine & Barbeque Festival
Showcasing the Canberra Region ... and further afield.
Craft beer, local wineries, live music and all things barbeque will be set against the backdrop of raw Australian bushland in Goolabri's newest event space, "The Wedgetail Pavilion"
Some of the nation's finest barbeque stalls from a variety of different cultures will be there to provide everything from spit roasted and smoked meats, all the way down to the humble sausage sandwich and even some vegetarian options!
Canberra's rapidly emerging winery and brewery scene has produced some incredible wines and fantastic craft beers. Taste them for yourself and meet the owners as the best of what Canberra has to offer will all be in the one place.

Canberra's music scene is alive and well. Starting with the smooth solo performance of Canberra darling, FELIX, followed by the chilled vibes of Richard Perso and Guyy Lilleyman, the energy will build as the day progresses, with the rootsy sounds from the coast by The Somedays and the funky bassy rhythms of the legendary Changeable Dan rounding out the evening, leaving us well sated.
