Eat delicious ribs, drink rum, and hear reggae all day
Rumfest 2018 will be held on Saturday the 13th of October, 2018, from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. The venue is Canefire, 496 Great Northern Highway, Middle Swan. It will feature live reggae, tasty ribs and some of Perth's tastiest spirits.

This is an extravaganza in the Swan Valley, using local Reggae entertainers, a variety of local Rib Food Trucks, and serving only Western Australian produced and owned beer, spirits and cocktails. There will be five rib vendors and an onsite barista. The reggae music will be on all day, so this is a must for all you reggae lovers.

To make things more interesting, there is going to be a whopping 4 kg rib-eating competition on the day! The event will be an intimidate gig with less than 1000 attendees. The focus will be on guest experience showcasing West Australian owned and made.

About Canefire
Canefire is a unique spirit. Although it is made from a rum like brew of sugar (called a patch) - this product is not harsh like rums which use molasses.

Canefire started as sugar cane growers in the Ord River Valley around Kununurra. The sugar was harvested and then processed to an unrefined sugar.

Canefire has been developed, as well as grown, owned, made and bottled right here in Western Australia.
