A massive dog-friendly Garlic Bread Festival is heading to Melbourne next month

Freshly Baked Bread

It’s one of Melbourne's most anticipated events.

Ah, Garlic Bread. The holy trinity of bread, butter, and garlic created by the gluten gods to make us mere mortals very, very happy – you know, in a greasy, buttery, carby type of way. We love it, there’s no ifs, buts or maybes about it, which is why we’re pretty damn excited that an entire festival dedicated to the delicious creation is heading to Melbourne next month.

The key takeaways

  • Welcome to Thornbury is hosting the annual Garlic Bread Festival
  • Essentially it’s a whole day dedicated to eating and celebrating garlic bread
  • The bar will be serving savoury cocktails to pair with your bread

Coined the Garlic Bread Festival, this annual event is like Christmas, truly sacred and special, and will return to Northcote’s giant dog-friendly food truck park – Welcome To Thornbury – on Saturday, April 10.

Comforting in every guise, expect to find garlic bread burgers, garlic bread cheesesteaks, garlic bread gozleme, garlic bread fish and chips and, of course, the good ol’ foil-wrapped classic garlic bread. There will even be a vegan version on offer from the team at Woking Amazing. The full lineup will be released very soon so keep an eye out.

To wash it all down, the bar will be serving a variety of minty fresh drinks all day, alongside cocktails, beers, ciders and wines.

Go forth, fellow garlic bread lovers, go forth and indulge. Oh, and BYO breath mints.

The festival takes over Welcome to Thornbury on Saturday, April 10 from 12pm-10pm. Entry is free but you can book a table here.
