Made for the modern man by the modern man
The realm of the modern man, a man-cave on steroids, the Festival of Steve is returning to let men be men for at least 8 hours.
Encompassing style, design, food, booze, bands, poker and snooker, the festival aims to celebrate the discerning and modern men of Melbourne.

The scent of musk has scarcely settled from the previous festival, at which Melbourne's fellas improved their billiards game, and had their favourite shoes shined by Beggar Man Thief while being entertained by live music from the likes of Brooke Russell and the Mean Reds.

The festival features fashion, wares, food and drink focusing on gents, with last year's festival showcasing Pugnacious George, Lord Coconut, the Design Dispensary and boutique pale ale Quiet Deeds. Topics such as style and design, men's health, business were on the agenda for discussion last year, and a comedian was also on the bill.

This year the organisers say to expect the best of last year, as well as a few new tricks up a perfectly fitted and stylishly cuffed sleeve.
Described in a nutshell as "for fellas, about fellas", The Festival of Steve is hosted across two levels of the historical Kelvin Club at Melbourne Place on Saturday May 24th from midday to 8pm and is free for fellas to attend.
