Culture and Events

Food trucks are firing up, festoon lights fill the night and festivals are in full swing. Balmy Perth nights are meant to be enjoyed; get outside and get involved! Your summer is sorted with a packed calendar of events with something for everyone.

Food trucks

Whether you seek to enjoy tastes from around the world, or just give yourself a night off from cooking, the community-style dining experience has seen food trucks explode in popularity. Add to that a beautiful setting in one of the City’s suburban or coastal parks, and your night looking alright. Check out Food Truck Fiesta at various locations around the City, bringing you the flavours of the world in an ambient setting.

Live music

Pack a picnic and head to your local park to enjoy the free Music in the Park series right in your neighbourhood. With free kid’s activities and plenty of entertainment, it’s the perfect family or date night on a budget.

What could be more romantic than enjoying a picnic and an outdoor concert under the stars on the beautiful fairway of Joondalup Resort? The City’s annual Valentine’s Concert sees more 8,000 people come together for internationally-acclaimed acts which have included The Music of Queen, the Ten Tenors and the WA premier of All You Need is Love. Follow the City on Facebook for act announcements and ticket information.


Support local artists and small businesses and find that perfect gift wandering one of the many markets this summer. Come for the shopping and stay for the music, food and workshops, with the village-style feel making for a magical night out. Try the Burns Beach Twilight Market or the Markets by the Sea at Whitford Nodes.
