Food lovers are invited to enjoy the best of Camberwell’s food and beverage offering at Dine In Dine Out, which returns for its fifth year.
Camberwell’s premier food event will run on Saturday, August 5 and offer laneway pop-up parks, food tastings and demonstrations, in-store promotions, a market family day and entertainment for families.
The Camberwell Traders’ Association organise and run the event to showcase the best in local cafes, restaurants, niche food stores and market produce.
Camberwell Traders’ Association manager Kerry Daly said she was pleased to see Dine In Dine Out return for its fifth year.
“Our Dine In Dine Out event has grown each year and been a great success. It has given visitors the chance to explore the many food and drink options available across Camberwell precinct,” she said.
“We have more than 140 food businesses across the Camberwell precinct, which might surprise people. Dine In Dine Out gives us the chance to showcase the diverse food and dining options in the area.”
On August 5, Camberwell will come to life as two pop-up parks will operate from different locations across the shopping precinct from 10am – 3pm.
The Evans Place laneway will become a Pop-Up Park, complete with turf, festoon lighting, seating areas and games including giant chess and checkers. There will also be vendors selling and demonstrating delicious food and drinks.
The Marketplace Park, located in the Station St car park near the Camberwell Fresh Food Market, will be ideal for families with children. The area will offer plenty of entertainment including roaming performers, free rides, fun activities and a mobile animal farm.
The Camberwell Fresh Food Market will also host their Family Day – guests can get involved in a tomato crushing event, try their hand at the spinning wheel and take advantage of exclusive offers available on the day.
In addition to these events, visitors to Dine In Dine Out can look out for performances from a Caribbean steal band at Aerial Walk (near the junction), hop on an antique fire truck for free rides around Camberwell precinct and challenge themselves to slot car racing with Race Party at the Pop-Up Park.
From 6pm – 10pm, the Evans Place laneway will transform into an After Dark Jazz Park where a live band, Dr Jazz and The Gangsters Palace, will put their stamp on popular jazz tunes. The evening show will also include swing dancers, fire twirling and daring magic tricks.
Visitors are invited to drop in for a wine tasting on their way to one of Camberwell’s fine restaurants or they can stick around to enjoy the lively atmosphere.
