The Coogee Foreshore Festival returns to Coogee Pavilion on Sunday the 20th of March. The festival is part of the eighth annual March into Merivale, the popular five-week food and drink program bolstered by dozens of Merivale’s restaurants and bars to showcase the work of their group chefs.
Food and drink stalls, live performances by The Aston Martinis, roving entertainment and family games (including face painting and puppet shows) will be held at Coogee Pavilion and on the promenade for this annual event.
Inside the Pavilion dome, choose from Vincenzo Biondini’s famous wood-fired pizzas, freshly shucked oysters, or kingfish wrapped in vine leaves. Alternatively, head outside and peruse the pop-up stalls from venues including Papi Chulo, El Loco, Mr. Wong and sushi e. A selection of refreshing gelato will be on offer, and as will Veuve Clicquot’s decadent pop-up bar.
