Transport & Parking

The Cider & Pork Festival at The Nursery is right next to the Flemington Racecourse Train Station & Bus Stop- so there are a plethora of ways to get there safely!

For those wanting to drive, Flemington Racecourse has all day parking for $20.

Children at the Festival

Mums and Dads, you’re welcome to bring your children to the Festival with you – however they must be closely supervised at all times. Please get in touch with us at info@ciderandporkfestival.com.au if you require further clarification on this.

Picnic Blankets & Chairs

You’re welcome to bring a picnic blanket with you and set them up on the grass at The Nursery.

Unfortunately there are no chairs allowed though.  There are plenty of seating options at the Festival.

What time to Gates & Ticket Booth open?

The Ticket Booth will be open from 10.45am and the Festival gates open at 11am

Can I buy tickets on the door?

There will be a limited amount of door sales available on both days of the Festival, however we would strongly recommend purchasing your tickets online to avoid missing out.  It’s also cheaper to buy them online, it’s $5 more to buy them on the door.

Companion Cards

The Cider & Pork Festival gladly welcomes guests with a companion card and they are more than welcome to bring a carer in free of charge.

How do the Cider Tastings work?

There are Cider (and Beer) Tasting Cards available for purchase with your ticket or at the Festival.
10 Tasters costs $20 (they are big tasters – 120ml each)!  The best way to sample the 75+ Beers on offer!

I don't drink Cider! What else do you have?

We have plenty of options for the non-cider drinkers including specialty beer producers and the Cocktail Bar featuring a drinks menu designed by Four Pillars! Wines, and soft drinks will also be available at the Festival.

Do I need to buy a ticket for my kids?

Children under the age of 18 do not require an entry ticket – just bring them along!

Can I bring my own Food & Drink?

No outside food or drink is allowed inside. There is free drinking water available inside the Festival.
