ABOUT THE FEST
LIKE ALL BRILLIANT IDEAS, THIS EPIC FESTIVAL WAS BORN IN A BAR, OVER A BEER BETWEEN A PUBLICAN, A FESTIVAL MANAGER AND THE OWNER OF A BREWERY.
Answering the call of Australia’s new wave of beer makers and beer lovers, our vision was simple: bring together the best beers, brewers and barbecuers in an all-in-one music festival environment at a time of year that most people and event producers are in hibernation.
Beer and BBQ Fest showcases the best of Australian and international beer & cider with heaps of exhibitors along with some of the country’s best restaurants and chefs cooking up a BBQ storm with some very special interstate and international BBQers.
A true cultural event experience. In equal parts, BBQ, beer and music are all key ingredients along with a curated program of masterclasses, forum discussions, on stage competitions (including the infamous Beer Bod Wet T-Shirt Championship), vinyl store, merch markets, barber shops, tattooing, hot sauces, rubs and a family program for the Sunday rounding it out to make this show unique and enjoyable for just about anyone!
ABBF will take place at the Adelaide Showground in Wayville on the Leader Street side. We recommend the tram to the Goodwood Station, only a short walk from the entrance to the festival. There are numerous public transit services, ample taxi and UBER space. Please be responsible, we recommend not driving, but if you do drive then there is some limited paid parking off of Leader Street.
