Foodies will be treated to a plant-based burger high tea at Beef & Barley, flower-based desserts from the creative minds at Frugii, a four-course dinner that embraces NightFest by getting progressively darker with every dish at Monster Kitchen & Bar.
Treat your foodie tribe to scrumptious share platters and a signature Floriade cocktail at Zoo Bar, celebrate springtime party vibes with live music, beer and burgers at Capital Brewing Co., or indulge in a feast fit for a Mad Hatter with 3 curated courses matched with fine wines at QT’s Capitol Bar & Grill.
This culinary extravaganza is a Floriade first and will support the hospitality industry, which has been impacted by the adverse economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. By supporting one local eatery, Canberrans are supporting many including local producers, their suppliers and regional growers. Book ahead to avoid disappointment.
This year, NightFest will also be coming into the home of the Canberran foodie and entertainment aficionado.
Canberrans ordering packs to enjoy at home can choose between Lazy Grazer packs full of everything you need to make a delightful grazing table, curated cocktail kits from Underground Spirits and Gourmet By Design goodie packs featuring everything you need for a great evening including Capital Brewing tinnies, a bottle or two from Contentious Character and chocolate treats.
Canberra’s big NightFeast wouldn’t be complete without those treats that NightFest is famous for – entertainment and lights. Try your hand at making one of the festival’s signature lanterns and enjoy a curated Spotify playlist featuring artists from past festival to bring a fun-sized taste of NightFest into your home. Will it be a wild night in? When the moon is shining bright, who knows what NightFest will bring!
Remember, it is everyone’s responsibility to follow the health advice and do what we can to ensure we keep ourselves and the community safe. All Floriade and NightFest fans are asked to avoid large crowds, keep 1.5m apart whenever possible, maintain good hand and respiratory hygiene, stay home if unwell and get tested if any COVID-19 symptoms are experienced.
