The Oxford Tavern Is Bringing Back The World’s Best Pickle Fest With Rise N’ Brine 2021


Thursday 18 November 2021 

SYDNEY: Petersham’s favourite local The Oxford Tavern is brine-ing back the world’s best* pickle fest with Rise N’ Brine 2021

The festival is kind of a big dill for pickle lovers, with both the 2019 and 2020 Rise N’ Brine party selling out faster than we can open a jar of pickles. And now it’s back and bigger than ever in 2021. 

From 12pm-5pm on Saturday 18 December, pickle lovers from all over town can come to the Tav to get pickle-faced with a whole bunch of pickle-inspired eats, drinks and competitions. 

Here’s what pickle punters can expect on the day: beer and pickles (obviously). It’s the match that’s fer-meant to be. We’ve got specialty brewed beers with pickle influence from our local brewery mates. 

The Tav will also be slinging its famous pickle-back slushies, as well as a huge pickle-inspired food and beverage menu that will absolutely pickle you pink.

For some other pickle-y fun, there will be a pickle toss game with some stellar prizes from the pickle wheel of fortune to be won. Plus, The Oxford Tavern will crown the Inner West’s ultimate pickle lover via its legendary pickle eating contest. 

But the pickle fun doesn’t stop there with some of the Inner West’s most beloved bands and DJ’s hitting the stage all afternoon playing the best country jams this side of Petersham.

Rise N’ Brine is going full rodeo style this year with no bookings for the day, just first in, first served. 

*We don’t technically hold this title but if such an accolade existed our pickle festival would 100% win it.
