    Food and drinks

    A huge variety of food stalls will be located at the event, with many catering for gluten-free and vegan diets. 

    As we transition to more sustainable events, this year’s event will again be #StrawFreeADL and all food packaging from vendors will be compostable and can be placed in the green organics bins onsite.

    Pirate Life and Sidewood Estate will be offering a variety of beverages for purchase at the licensed bars.

    No BYO alcohol and for the comfort of party-goers this is a non-smoking event.
