The weather bureau predicts rain from tomorrow on and showers all weekend, so what better way to spend the day than celebrating Fremantle’s CLANCY’S 30th birthday.

Thirty Years of Clancy’s Music is on at the fish pub this Saturday. Check their Facebook page for details.

Congratulations to Fremantle’s Clancy’s Fish Pub which is celebrating its 30th birthday!

During my good old drinking days I spent many hours a week at Clancy’s drinking Guinness and wine and eating lots of fish&chips, whitebait and fried mice.

I danced to exhaustion on the great music of the Zydecats almost every Sunday night and attended many festivals Clancy’s organised in Princess May Park.

The Clancy’s crew are the best people and the family atmosphere in the pub makes sure there are very few occasions of the odd bad drunk.

Melbourne Cup at Clancy’s was a really day out where I caught up with friends at 11am to stagger home early evening.

Clancy’s is a truly Freo icon that looks after children as well as it looks after grown ups.

Happy birthday Fisher brothers and all the staff and thanks for all the good times!

THAT WAS A GREAT FREO LONG WEEKEND!

We live in a special place here in Fremantle when one considers that we had a massive influx of tens of thousands of people over the four days of the Fremantle International Street Arts Festival and the days went peacefully without any big hicups and everyone had a smile on their face.

The 20th street arts festival was not the most outstanding in my opinion with a bit too much of the same for my taste because it lacked variety and creative top class performers.  My favourites were the roaming spectacle of the big birdmen and the funny roving photographers in their rain coats.

But what a great weekend for Freo and hopefully also for our traders!

The Fremantle International Street Arts Festival is on and it is a whole lot of fun!

I went to have a short look yesterday and there are great funny acts, booming music from WAHONK, the huge birds are wandering around and frighten and delight kids.

There are pop up bars along the Cappuccino Strip and in front of the National Hotel and the West End Weekender is a great retreat along historic High Street.

Don’t miss it! It’s on from midday till early evening.

Good Fridays are no longer boring! The Fremantle International Street Arts Festival already starts today in the far west of Freo, so come enjoy the fun and sunshine.

It is all happening around the Esplanade and Fishing Boat Harbour today so there won’t be any shows in the CBD. They will be added on Saturday, Sunday and Monday..

The shows today run from 12 noon till 5pm, with another evening show at 7pm at the new Seraphim Buskers Bar of Little Creatures. See detail above.

Also on of course is the Woylie Aboriginal Australian Kids Story Festival at the Moores Building in Henry Street.

FREMANTLE FESTIVAL TO BECOME WINTER EVENT

Posted in city of fremantle, entertainment, festivals, fremantle festival, Uncategorized by freoview on March 23, 2018

 

The annual Fremantle Festival, one of the longest running festivals in Australia, is proposed for a major change from a summer festival to a winter festival.

Officers recommend to Fremantle Council to only have a three-day festival in October this year and then change the date of the festival in 2019 to the month of July.

In the agenda item that will go to Ordinary Council this coming Wednesday officers say there is too much competition during the summer months. A winter festival would revitalise a dormant Fremantle and pull residents out of their hibernation and support traders who are struggling during the quiet winter months.

HAVE A HAPPY ST PATS FREO!

St Pats Clancys

 

It is going to be a rather cool 23C degrees today so enjoy your St Patrick’s Day, Fremantle.

The pubs got specials on and Clancy’s have a big music program from midday till late.

Guinness is a great drink as long as it is consumed in moderation, so keep that in mind and don’t drink and drive please.

In two weeks the Fremantle International Street Arts Festival will be held during the long Easter weekend and also on Good Friday.

It is my favourite Freo festival and it will the the 20th anniversary of the all free delightful creative and fun street spectacle, so make sure to let friends know and make it very relaxing days out.

I love the buzz on the streets, the smiles and excitement and the family friendly ambience and there is always so much to see all over the inner city.

This year there will even be evening events AFTER DARK on Saturday and Sunday till 8pm and the fully licensed Seraphim pop-up bar pitch at Little Creatures.

The program is full of international and national acts and includes the energy laden WAHONK Fest street bands spectacle and the West End Weekender stalls along High Street.

There are printed programs out available at the City of Fremantle library and Visitor Centre and you can also get them at the Roundhouse, and of course there is a Facebook page with all the info .

I am really looking forward to this Fremantle weekend of fun where the streets will be packed full with people!
