The fun and inviting interior of Green Moustache’s rooftop garden bar and restaurant makes for the perfect setting to celebrate Argentina’s vibrant culture. With high ceilings, glass walls overlooking the treetops and an abundance of lush greenery inside, together with bohemian furnishings and fantastic food, you’ll find you’ve got an atmosphere like no other.

Throw in music, dancing, football and a community full of soul and this friendly family festival will surely enhance this ideal destination in North Sydney as it pays homage to rich traditions, captivating rhythms and the heritage spirit of a remarkable region.

Doors will open at 11.30am with the day centring around an epic Asado, a meal of feasting fit for an Argentinian God, that includes delicious empanadas and alfajores (sweet sandwich cookies) from the famed Empanadas Che who has come out of retirement especially for this festival.

There will be wine tasting from Catena Zapata (voted the world’s best vineyard in 2023) and Accuro Malbec (known for their fruit expression in wine), live Latin American music, free tango lessons and performances, plus face painting for the kiddies.

You’ll also find enough Fernet Branca (an Italian style of amaro/bitters) to water the Argentinian soccer team, as well as foosball tournaments with Fernet Branca merchandise up for grabs and a live art show from Argentinian artist Lucia Medina. One lucky festivalgoer has the chance to win her finished piece at the end of the day.

Tickets to the festival are free with food and drinks available to purchase on the day. You can enter the festival anytime throughout the day and night with your ticket.

But that’s not all, come evening the Asado delivers succulent grilled meats well into the night as the venue plays host to a milonga, aka a tango dance party. It’s an absolute sight to see from 4pm-7pm.

Whilst the festival atmosphere is pumping in the main venue until 11pm, the night also sees the private dining room (the Sky Room) open its doors for an incredible Argentinian-inspired 3-course dinner with juicy meats, premium empanadas, chorizo and Dulce De Leche desserts alongside free-flowing Malbec wine, Quilmes beer and Fernet Branca. This exclusive dinner from 6.30pm (that also includes live entertainment) is limited to 40 seats, with tickets priced at $99pp. To enquire re availability and taking part in this dinner, please email [email protected].
