Margaret River’s newest winter festival: Cabin Fever

Margaret River’s newest winter festival Cabin Fever is about to kick off with 35 events set to take place between July 14 and 23 throughout the Margaret River region.

Events include celebrity chef Guy Grossi in Residence at Voyager Estate (just a handful of tickets left), Cocoa Nuts with Cavalcade Desserts, Four Elements Feast at Arimia , a cheese and wine pairing at Happs Wines, a bacon and Bloody Mary breakfast at Piari & Co, a beer, whisky and chocolate appreciation event at Eagle Bay Brewing Co, a ping pong tournament at The Pourhouse, Backyard Brewing Tournament, Fondue by the Fire at Howard Park, secret speakeasy, Wilyabrup Cooking Class and Log Table Lunch and an opportunity to sample rare back-vintage cabernets at Cape Grace Wines.
Guy GrossieFestival Director Brianna Delaporte said she wanted to position Cabin Fever as a unique food and wine event.

“There will be blazing bonfire nights accompanied by cold brews, a 1920s inspired speakeasy, a pop-up espresso martini bar, fondue by the fire, knife-sharpening workshops, farm walks, charcoal-cooked meats, all accompanied by delicious Margaret River wine,” Ms Delaporte said.

The event encourages locals and visitors alike to put hibernation on hold this winter. With a packed event schedule that has a good mix of free and ticketed events, almost all centred around food, wine and beer, it sounds like a good idea to me!
