Food, guilt-free food, beer, music, travel, what more could you ask for?
Donut & Beer Festival | Melbourne
12 & 13 March 2017
Coming in hot from the States this weekend is Australia’s first doughnut and beer festival. What could be better than bringing together the local community and businesses to celebrate our love for doughnuts and beer? An unlikely duo but a dynamic one nevertheless. If you feel guilty for the amount of calories that will be absorbed then just think about the amount of money that will be raised for Eat Up, the non-for-profit organisation feeding hungry Aussie kids. It’s a clear win, win.
