Indulge in bottomless blue-lipped beauties at the Festival of Mussels
Calling all (sea)foodies! The Gold Coast’s first-ever mussel festival is happening this July and you need to be there. These sweet and oh-so-tasty molluscs are now in season, so the team at Miami Marketta are celebrating in delicious fashion with the Festival of Mussels on Sunday July 29.
Pack the wet wipes and don the stretchy pants – this is going to be big! With baby blue-lipped mussels ready for harvesting, Miami Marketta is joining forces with everybody’s favourite foodie fellas the Mussel Brothers and Kinkawooka Mussels to shine the light on these morsels when they are at their best with the city’s first Festival of Mussels event. Want to know the best part? Your ticket will include all-you-can-eat mussels. That’s right – all.you.can.eat.mussels.
Okay, wipe that drool off your keyboard – here’s what you need to know. The doors open at 1:00 pm on Sunday July 29, tickets are just $30 and include an unlimited supply of mussels served in a range of seasonal flavours. There will also be an oyster bar (which you’ll pay extra for), plenty of live music and all of the drinks. Coming with someone who doesn’t quite love mussels as much as you? There will be woodfired pizzas and delicious desserts there too. Tickets to Festival of Mussels can be purchased online. Get ’em while they’re hot (both the tickets and the mussels).
