Check the events on for this year's fabulous Perth Festival
This annual festival will be packed with nightlife, entertainment and food and drink options galore. The Perth Festival has something for everyone. Here is a glimpse of what you can expect at this fantastic festival in 2018! Each year, the talent and line-up seem to get better and better!


CHEVRON GARDENS
Chevron Gardens is the place to dance, swoon, tremble and holler. While the sounds of the city will be your focus, you are invited to indulge the other senses. Perth's finest restaurants will tantalise your taste buds while the selection of summer drinks will keep the spirits high!

Want to live it up as a VIP at the Gardens? Limited VIP Experience seats are available for each show at the Chevron Gardens this year. With a guaranteed seat within the VIP area and your own dedicated cash bar, grab your friends and be the envy of everyone at the Gardens.

FESTIVAL SCENT
In 2018 the Perth Festival Scent is Damask Rose. Iranian migrant, Mahin Nowbakht has inspired this year's scent with her precious donation of a bottle of rosewater to our Museum of Water.

Mahin arrived with rosewater and Damask Rose petals when she migrated to Perth 14 years ago and it speaks profoundly of the connection that this ancient flower gives to her homeland and culture. "Rosewater is like holy water to me," she said. "Its scent makes me feel calm and at peace."

Since ancient times, roses have been used medicinally, nutritionally, and as a source of perfume. Damask Rose tells a story of our multicultural community and is a gift between cultures that will be infused in venues, food and drinks across the city with our partners. And look out for a very special event as part of our Museum of Water public programmes that will celebrate the sounds and tastes of Persia.
