A tipple or two at Taste of Braddon

As of 1 January 2018, the management of the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy transferred from In The City Canberra to the City Renewal Authority. Views expressed in these articles may not reflect the views of the Authority.

People of Braddon: hold onto your hipster hats, burgers and beers as the time is almost right for you to shine! For two days only, the community of Canberra and surrounding regions will be invited to help In The City Canberra (ITCC) celebrate the benefits of Braddon.

Spanning the weekend of 11 and 12 November, Taste of Braddon will be a festival in Haig Park like no other – a festival of wine, food, dog races and goat yoga. That’s right – unlock your energy centre to stretch and flex with Goats, as the latest craze taking the world by storm is anything but static. This extraordinary yet totally hip activity will take centre stage at Taste of Braddon, promising to deliver laughs and awkward moments.

Also featuring will be the Food and Wine Frolic, a ticketed ‘adults only’ opportunity to sample some of the Canberra region’s best wines! Whether it’s a vino rosso, bianco, rosa, prosecco, refreshing ale or spirited spirit that tantalises your tastebuds, one of our 16 visiting wineries, breweries or distilleries is sure to have you covered! Here’s who will feature on the day:

  • Summerhill Road
  • Gundog Estate
  • Shaw Vinery
  • Mt Majura
  • Underground Spirits
  • Lark Hill
  • Poachers Pantry
  • Willy Trout Wines
  • Quarry Hill
  • Murrumbateman Winery
  • Sholto Wines
