Canberra Getaways

The Commons Street Feast Takes Over Canberra

  • Written by Joni Wanless

Foodies rejoice – a new food festival is coming to Canberra!  The Commons Street Feast is bringing together more than 20 of Australia's premier food trucks, artisan chefs, craft brewers and more for the ultimate street food festival.

Launching its inaugural season from 9-18 December in Commonwealth Park, The Commons Street Feast assembles your every guilty food pleasure into a 10-day summer celebration of street food and fun. 

Eat your way around the globe with Asian, American, European and South American food vans. Visitors can sink their teeth into cult favourite Mary's who will be serving mouth-watering burgers at their own pop up restaurant. They are being joined by the award-winning Gelato Messina, who'll be creating edible art with their international Soup Kitchen.

Festival favourites Bao Stop are bringing their infamous trifecta bao, Peking duck fries and never seen before cocktail bar. Happy as Larry will be dishing up traditional Napoli wood fired pizza made fresh from their truck and Canberra's own Pialligo Estate will be serving up their famous locally cured meat and cheese platters.

Showcasing some of the nation's finest brews will be a bespoke Craft Beer Bar pouring the likes of Little Creatures, Batlow Cider, Capital Brewing Co and Pact Beer Co. There will also be a dedicated Espresso Martini Bar serving premium cold drip espresso martini's courtesy of The Melbourne Martini.

Want to upgrade your experience? Treat yourself at The Commons with your very own butler. The butlers are available for hire so you can be waited on hand and foot at the event. They can reserve you a table, order and deliver food and drinks and even curate a menu should you feel overwhelmed by the all of the choices.

There will also be kids' activities each weekend and lawn games for young and old across the grassy knolls of Commonwealth Park. 

Open for dinner every night and from midday on weekends, The Commons is a free event, open to all ages with licensed 18+ bar areas on site.
