Cabin Fever winter festival launch warms Margaret River crowd | Photos

The inaugural Cabin Fever Festival was officially opened at a launch party last night held at Margaret River’s Jah Roc Galleries. 

Members of the creative and entertainment community gathered at the launch alongside Shire councillors and staff as well as tourism operators to celebrate the opening of the ten day festival, which will see a range of events at venues across the region. 

Festival directors Erin Molloy and Brianna Delaporte said they had been overwhelmed by the interest in the festival, with a number of events already sold out or very close to and tickets moving quickly on others.

“We’ve filled the program with activities you can’t get during any other ten day period in the Margaret River region that really showcases local producers and venues.”

“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 and more.”

Traditionally a quiet time for business operators in the region, the winter ‘off peak’ period is becoming a popular choice for travellers to the South West. 

Along with ticketed events, a number of free entry events are also on offer in the region throughout the festival.
