Backdropped by Manly’s iconic beachfront and centred around the pulsing heart of The Corso, Taste of Manly will spotlight incredible local restaurants, scrumptious Australian fine wines, delicious distilleries and a plethora of local breweries.

Taste of Manly is making its full return since COVID-19 impacted events across the globe on Saturday 27 – Sunday 28 May. Locals and visitors are being welcomed back with a new look and experience. Changes to the layout include fencing the entire site to make it easier for people moving in and around Manly, wanting to get to the beach and creating a safer, fun space for the event.

The Manly streets will come alive with the sounds of local bands and musicians performing live on the Beachfront stage with plenty to see, do and eat.

Attendees will enjoy two days of food and fun, located just a hop skip and jump from Circular Quay via Manly Ferries and Watsons Bay via the Ferryhopper service.

Those wishing to attend can purchase a re-useable stemless glass for $10 upon entry*, with tastings $6. Food stall holders have their own prices so guests can tap and go.
