The 2015 A Toast to the Coast on Sunday, March 22, will be the biggest yet, according to marketing and events manager Sarah Mallah.

Ms Mallah said more than 20 stalls at the free festival would offer tastings from local producers, including chocolates, olives, cheeses, chutneys and chillis.

‘The wine and beer tasting stalls will open from 10am and run until 5pm,’ she said.

‘There will be loads of live entertainment including Proof, one of Perth’s premiere party bands live on the Indi stage from 1pm to 4pm and Slim Jim and The Phatts band live on The Boat stage from 3.30pm to 6.30pm.

‘Food gurus and celebrity chefs will be cooking up sensational gourmet delights at the cooks’ corner from 11am to 4pm.’

Ms Mallah said there would also be street performers and entertainers along the boardwalk through the day.

The children’s zone will also be open with the Cuddly Animal Farm, sand art and craft activity, face painting, balloon twisting and a jumping castle, and more than 35 art and craft stalls will showcase from 9am to 5pm.
