Wine & Cheese Festival

The Eatyard Wine & Cheese Festival is new to our festival line-up but after the great times that were had last year, we decided to continue it. It is an eventful weekend full of Wine & Cheese samplings, demos, cheesy karaoke and much more.


After holding Rumbullion & Ginfusion, we decided we couldn’t just pick one spirit. Tippletown is our party that celebrates drinks of all shapes and sizes.

The Eatyard

The Eatyard is an award winning food market space located at 9-10 South Richmond St right next door to The Bernard Shaw. It’s been 2-4 years in the talking and making, and has grown out of our annual Beatyard & Big Grill festivals, the various flea and car boot sales we’ve hosted as well as numerous trips to destinations like Austin, London, South Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. A mish-mash of all of the above has gotten us to this point.
