Prahran Market



Sizzlefest 2021 is here!  Experience everything that cooking over fire, smoke & grill has to offer, over three days and two exclusive night-time sessions in Prahran Market’s Open Square from 26th – 28th March.

Market Square will see pop-up marquees with both Prahran Market and external traders selling the very best grilled eats to satisfy any appetite.  Eats, drinks and workshops by The Que Club are an exciting addition and the Mezzanine will be transformed into a Burnley Brewing Beer Garden complete with live music from local performers.

In Harvest Hall, the Prahran Market Kitchen will host demonstrations and workshops during the day.

Exclusive night-time sessions

For the first time ever, exclusive ticketed night-time sessions will take place on the Friday and Saturday.

Grab your ticket to sip craft beers or cocktails under the stars, while taking in The Que Club’s ‘demo after dark’ grilling series,  live tunes and entertainment.

Graze on a huge selection of barbecued delicacies from Melbourne’s best food institutions including The Que Club, Jimmy Brisket, Hoy Pinoy and the Market’s best traders.

And don’t miss Burnley Brewing’s rooftop beer garden, complete with a tasty selection of flame-grilled goodness too.

This event is set to be smokin’ so grab your tickets now!

Each ticket holder receives a Prahran Market insulated cup to sip from and take home (perfect for keeping frothies cool, wine chilled and coffee just right!).

Annual Sausage Tasting Competition

The Annual Sausage Tasting Competition will also take place, but this year it will be a little different. Running over six ticketed sessions, each guest will receive a plate with samples of each of the sausages to try before they cast their vote. The sausages will be put forward by Bracher Arcade Traders in the hope that theirs will be named Sausage of the Year. Tickets will include a voucher from Burnley Brewing (or a $5 Prahran Market voucher for those under 18 years of age).  This will be held in a roped off area in the Market Square.
