Quit Jerking Your Gherkin And Book Tickets To Next Month’s Rise ‘n’ Brine Pickle Festival

Rise ‘n’ Brine takes over The Oxford Tavern for three days of pickle fun.


Unable to wait an entire year for their next edition, and who can blame them after the year we’ve had, the crew at The Oxford Tavern have pulled out all the stops to make this year’s pickle event bigger and better than ever.

Kicking off on Saturday, October 3, and finishing up on the Monday’s Labour Day public holiday, Rise ‘n’ Brine will see the three bars at Oxford Tavern filled to the brim with everything you can think of that is pickle related.

There will be specialty brewed beers from local breweries Batch Brewing, Yulli’s Brews and the Tavern’s very own brewing label, Oxford Brewing Racket; pickleback slushies made with Jameson’s Whiskey and McClure Pickles as well as cocktails; and jumbo pickle poppers, pickle pops, Reuben spring rolls, Cuban sambos, and more food than ever so it’s pretty much guaranteed that they will not run out like last year you hungry bastards.


Entertainment will also be provided in the form of the McClure Pickle Eating Competition as well as the Toss Your Pickle competition where winners will be able to draw prizes from the pickle-customised Wheel of Fortune.

The main difference from last year is that this year’s event is not free. However, with your $10 ticket purchase, you’ll score a reserved spot as well as a beer or slushie of your choice.

If you’re looking for more fun times this Labour Day long weekend, then look no further than Pixar Putt in Parramatta. Fun for everyone.
