Yes, we are open on the Public Holiday ... for a fusion of Groove, Gastronomy and Grapes in the Garden!
As you tap your toes to the music you can indulge in delicious Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges foods and beverages. Entry includes complimentary wine and beer tastings from some amazing boutique wineries and breweries. Dr Jazz featuring Ruby Ray, Apple Ida and her Cider Press Band and The Tracey Roberts Trio will entertain all weekend long. We have roving performers, Fairy Mary will be telling tales in the fairy garden, some delicious market stalls and all the fun of the fair with our daily activities and features.
It is the perfect weekend to relax and enjoy the colours of spring.
There are beers, wines and ciders from the fabulous Red Duck, Yarrawood Estate, Buckley’s Beers and Yering Farm Wines with more to be announced soon.
During the Tesselaar Tulip Festival Food, Wine and Jazz weekend, each adult receives two complimentary tasting tokens on entry. With a range of Yarra Valley wineries and breweries to choose from, everybody’s taste buds should be well catered for.
Wines will also be available by the glass or bottle so you can sit back and enjoy the jazz amongst the splendour of the tulips. Tesselaar and participating wineries practice responsible service of alcohol – please ensure you have a designated driver for the day, or take our convenient charter bus to Lilydale station.
