The Yarra Valley Beer & Cider Festival will be running on Saturday 14th April 2018 from 11am – 5:30pm (last drinks 5:00pm) at the Lilydale Showgrounds. The festival is an initiative by the Rotary Club of Wandin, in conjunction with some passionate community beer and cider lovers. The focus of the festival will be to allow patrons to sample some of the finest boutique beer and cider that Victoria has to offer, with many exhibitors being close to home. Quality food stalls will be in attendance, along with entertainment to ensure a well rounded day out for all.

We can see that there is a chance of some showers on the day but we are not about to let that dampen our spirits or spoil your day! We have made some changes to our infrastructure so we will have a mega marquee setup in the middle of the festival to keep you dry. We have ordered more picnic tables than last year and these will also have large umbrellas to keep you sheltered.
