Mid Week Eats - Island Love Boat

NEW DATE – 7 March 2024

Please note, this event has been moved to Thursday 7 March 2024 due to extreme temperatures reported on the original date of Thursday 15 February 2024.

Sad about farewelling the holiday season heading back to the drudgery of school and work? Give yourself a mid-week treat and hop aboard the Island Love Boat. Come with us and venture across to the warm calm waters of the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas. Let us delight your senses with a parade of food, music, entertainment and good times. 🙌️🎉

Mid Week Eats is an immersive experience featuring exotic foods, cultural performances and music to transport you across the globe.

Enjoy the balmy summer nights by bringing along something to sit on, a bottle or two of your favourite drop and partake in the festivities by tasting delectable food and soaking up the atmosphere under the canopy of leafy trees .🌎

New Location and Parking

Mid Week Eats is located at the new location of Riverton Reserve West. This is still at Riverton Reserve next to the Riverton Leisureplex at 67 Riley Road – however it is the very back park. We have moved to this new larger area at Riverton Reserve to provide more space for the event and our attendees.

Free shared onsite parking is available as normal at the Leisureplex facility with a small overflow parking facility available (including ACROD, see below) also which includes free bike racks for those considering riding their bikes down.

We encourage you to ride, walk, or catch public transport. Use the Transperth Journey Planner to plan your journey. 

As with all events near residential areas, please be patient with the staff as they assist traffic entering and exiting the event. Please also avoid parking on Laurel Close and on residential verges.

Dogs

We all love our fur babies and dogs are certainly permitted at Mid Week Eats, however please ensure they remain on a leash at all times. Given the number of small children and other dogs, we recommend only social/well behaved pups.

Food/Dietary Requirements

Should you have any specific dietary requirements, we recommend you check out the Facebook page or this page where each food truck will be listed. You can then jump onto their pages and review their menus. 
We will do our best to ensure we cater for vegan, Halal, vegetarian, dairy free and gluten free options.
It is the attendees' responsibility to ensure they check that their food choices suit their diet.

First Aid

St John Ambulance will be onsite if you require medical attention.
