HUNGRY? THE COMMONS STREET FEAST LAUNCHES FOR 2017

In 2016 the inaugural The Commons Street Feast attracted over 50,000 Canberrans across 10 days of pure, glorious indulgence! Returning from 30 Nov – 10 Dec in Commonwealth Park, The Commons is bringing over 20 of Australia’s most mouthwatering food trucks, dedicated craft beer and wine bars, the completely insta-worthy Pimms Garden, plus a whole host of events, entertainment and installations to satisfy your inner most gluttonous desires.

Each food truck will bring their own unique flavor, passion and style, plus 2016 favourites Gelato Messina will be serving a custom dessert range exclusive to The Commons, and Mary’s will be introducing their fried chicken to Canberra, alongside their ‘get fat’ burgers.

DRINK
Craft Beer Bar
Discover the best brew guaranteed to satisfy your cravings on these long summer days. Canberra has steadily built a reputation as a craft beer hotspot, so it’s only right for The Commons to serve up the best of the best.

Pimms Garden Bar
Pimms, the quintessential summer drink, is bringing their Summer Garden Pop-Up to The Commons. Transforming Commonwealth Park into a mini summer wonderland, Pimms will be serving their refreshing aperitifs all feastival. 

Wine Bar
The Commons Wine Bar will be serving the best of the local wine district, plus a few Australian favourites. There’s a classic summer cocktail to quench Canberra’s thirst; Prosecco Spritz, made with Prosecco blended with blood orange, botanicals and a twist of bitters, plus a Miami Ice Tea and Peach Bellini – which one first?

Yes, the Butlers are back baby!
One of the biggest hits of 2016 were the incredible Butlers. The ultimate in luxe service – they’ll take orders, queue, deliver food and drink to reserved tables and even curate a menu.  The Butler’s booked out in record time last year and will be in hot demand for 2017. Butler bookings will open in early November, with subscribers receiving first access.

Know your flux capacitors from your House of Targaryen? YASSS!
Common Culture Trivia is back and testing Canberra’s knowledge of all-things Game of Thrones, Sex & The City, Back To The Future and Kim & Kanye. Common Culture Trivia bookings will open in early November, with subscribers receiving first access.

Bringing the kids?
A world of entertainment for kids (and adult sized kids) is on offer at The Commons. We’ve got Big Fricking Games, roving street performers, face painting, balloon creations and we even heard a rumour that Santa is planning to stop by.

Fancy an Uncommon Christmas party this year?
Book your Christmas party at The Commons Street Feast in one of the private spaces and work with the team to create the perfect feast, whether its overeating burgers or grazing platters (or both!), we’ve got you fam.
