Melbourne spoilt with a 2 Day Donut and Beer Festival

on Labour Day Weekend


On Sunday March 12th 2017 between 2pm – 8pm and Monday March 13th 2017 from 12pm- 6pm, Australia’s very own Donut

and Beer Festival will come to life at The Village Melbourne on St Kilda Road.


Sponsored by Coopers Brewery, Two Birds Brewing, Square and Zomato the Donut and Beer Festival

is inspired by the Donut Festivals in Chicago, L.A. and NYC, but is not connected to any of the

American festivals. This all ages event will feature specialty coffee, local and boutique brews and an

enormous multi-coloured Donut Wall. It will be the first of many exciting events produced by Chow

Down Events Pty Ltd.


The Donut and Beer Festival will celebrate all things donut shaped; sugary, sweet, and savoury from

a range of talented and aspiring bakers. You can expect a fresh contemporary spin on the classical

handcrafted loukoumades from Honey Dee, gourmet mini donuts from Dip'd and specialty donuts

from Newman Espresso. There will also be organic chai from Chai Walli and Tim Tam donut shakes

from amDESSERT. And for the vegans and health enthusiasts out there, Cocomama’s will be on site

selling gluten free and vegan donuts including what we expect to be the crowd favourite, their

infamous sushi donuts.


Goldelucks’ hybrid “dossants” (donut-croissant), nutella donut burgers by Nuts-About-Tella, and

coffee experts; Workshop Bros will all be at the festival. Love ice cream? 196below known for their

liquid nitrogen ice cream will be around to keep you cool with their donut ice cream sandwiches.

Shark Tank contestants, Those Girls will be on standby, ready to help you quench your thirsty with

their delicious apple cider and cool iced tea. Empire Foods will also be around showcasing their

BuzzMe Honey Energy Drink. Even Cupcake Central – known for their delicious cupcakes have

created their own unique donut-cupcake just for the festival!


An Instagram competition will also be running on the day, where the most creative Instagram post

on the day will win the ultimate ‘Donut Lovers’ prize pack. To enter you simply need to

#donutfestmelb and tag @donutfestau to your creative Instagram post. Further details and winners

will be announced on the official Donut Fest Melbourne Facebook page.


A gold coin donation is essential for entry to the festival. Proceeds will go to Eat Up - a local charity

that packs and distributes lunches to disadvantaged students who arrive to school hungry and

without lunch every day.
