Welcome back for a very special best-of-the-west season of one of Melbourne Food & Wine Festival’s best-loved traditions. These Westside Crawls will take intimate groups of food lovers between three (sometimes four) venues in a night, stopping for a bite, a drink or a snack at each. Think of them as progressive dinners, the equivalent of a full meal, with a couple of small walks in the neighbourhood between spots.
Each Crawl is led by an MFWF host - we're lucky enough to be joined this March by such food-media luminaries as Cam Smith, Dani Valent, Sofia Levin, Hilary McNevin and the inimitable Richard Cornish - and each is a celebration of the eating and drinking culture of a different neighbourhood in the western suburbs of Melbourne.
A great way to explore your own backyard and meet your neighbours, or get to know a part of Melbourne that you’re less familiar with, Westside Crawls March 2021 are part of Eat Drink Westside, a unique collaboration between MFWF and the city’s western region councils. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
