SUBIACO’S Street Party will celebrate all things American, Asian, Mediterranean and Australian on April 6.

“There will be everything from a sand pit to the Crate Wall of China for the kids, as well as bars, a cigar lounge for the adults, carnival rides, a silent disco, pet show, pet photo booth as well as heaps of amazing food to grab,” Subiaco Street Party producer Jimmy Murphy said.

Event-goers will be able to explore the four themed zones at this year’s fourth annual event, including Asia and the Orient, Mediterranean, The Americas and Down Under.

Each area will include food trucks, music, costumed performances and interactive workshops.

Mr Murphy said this year the event, which attracted 40,000 people in 2018, will extend along Hay Street from Catherine Street up to Celebrations, and from Rokeby Road to Roberts Road.

“We’ve changed the theme from Subiaco to the theme of multicultural Subiaco this year,” he said.

“It’s strongly themed in conjunction with the businesses, local artists, local stalls and foodies and you can walk from zone to zone and experience the multi cultural aspect of Subiaco.”

Mr Murphy said businesses including Lulu La Delizia, Bistro Felix, The Vic, and Juanita’s were only some of the bars who have jumped on board for the event.

“Devlin’s will do a cigar lounge and Refuge Small Bar will also have a bar set up,” he said.

“Almost all the restaurants are getting involved, and a few retailers – we’ve had a good uptake.”
