Cabin Fever winter festival set to toast South West

The Cabin Fever winter festival returns to the South West this month, with the final program revealing a huge selection of events at venues across the region.

Following a successful inaugural year the festival has expanded to take in more than 35 locations, including main street eateries, windswept vineyard landscapes and cosy art galleries with plenty of fireside events planned.

A Fireside Mulled Wine event at Jahroc on Saturday July 14 will feature Georgia Morgan’s bespoke sculptural fire pits and mulled wine from Swings Taphouse, while the talented troupe from Sugar Blue Burlesque will warm things up at Burger Baby with their Burgerlesque Academy on Thursday July 19.

One of 2017’s most sought after Cabin Fever moments is back at Howard Park Wines, with Fondue by the Fire offering a lazy afternoon of cheese and wine around the fireplace with Cambray Sheep Cheese.

Settlers Tavern will once again host their Carpark Collective on Sunday July 22, where a family friendly day of entertainment is lined up in the specially-erected carpark marquee.

Cape Mentelle’s Bastille Day lunch, chef Mikihito "Miki" Nagai’s Sake Masterclass and Farm Fire Food by George Cooper are among the already-sold out ticketed events, joining the mysteriously-billed ‘Secret Dinner’, which despite no location, food or chef information, has sold out of its $150 per head ticket allocation.  

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.
