Celebrating everything BBQ 18th – 20th March

Prahran Market is excited to announce that things will be getting a little hotter at the Market next month with the return of Sizzlefest. Held from 18th to 20th March, the event will celebrate everything BBQ with pop-up food stalls in Market Square, Deed’s Brewery beer garden, demonstrations, entertainment and, of course the annual Sausage Tasting Competition.  

Over the three days, Market Square will be the ultimate destination for the best BBQ food and grilled eats to satisfy any appetite, including Berbeo Bros, The Que Club and Hoy Pinoy. Guests can relax in the Deed’s Brewing Beer Garden on the mezzanine while listening to live music.

The Friday evening session on 18th March will be ticketed, with tickets priced $10 and guests receiving a reusable cutlery pack on entry to use at the event and take home. Roving close-up magic from Anthony De Masi and fire twirling by Mariko will keep everyone entertained.

On Saturday Market-goers can learn some tips from the experts with demonstrations all afternoon. Bente Grysbaek will show how to cook with fire with two sessions in Market Square, while Gary’s Meats, The Que Club and Berbeo Bros will be demonstrating in the Market Kitchen in the centre of Harvest Hall.

The Annual Sausage Tasting Competition will take place on the Sunday, but with a different format to previous years which have seen crowds of over 200 people queuing to taste the snags created by the butchers of Bracher Arcade. The tasting will be ticketed across three sessions starting at 1pm and the Sausage of the Year will be announced at 3pm. Tickets are priced $5, the proceeds of which will be donated to Secondbite and all tasters will receive a Prahran Market bag to take home. There are only 100 tickets available so those eager to take part and vote for the winning sausage should get in quick.
