LEEDERVILLE businesses are set to showcase what they have to offer during an nine-day event in October.

EATerville, organised by Leederville Connect, will feature 52 food and drink businesses hosting their own events and activities in celebration of local flavours from October 11-20.

Most events will be held in the Leederville Village Square and there will be four marquee events such as a hawker’s market and open air food court.

Gusto Gelato owner Sean Lee said he would offer new flavours, run gelato making classes and participate in a food walking tour.

Mr Lee said the event aimed to attract people within Leederville and also the wider community.

“I think any event such as this where you’re showcasing the food and beverage offering of the community actually brings people into the area,” he said.

“There’s been a lot of people complaining about various things in business and so we decided to take it upon ourselves to actually create some events that draw people in.”

Other events to be hosted by food retailers include bar crawls, masterclasses and brunches.
