A festival not to be missed, encompassing a manly mix of bands, beer, bbq, beards, barbers and bonza times! The inaugural Man Date Festival was held in April of 2016 at Mort Street Estate Hotel in Toowoomba, QLD and was a huge success with overwhelming support shown on the day by involved businesses and attending punters with a repeated call for it to happen again.
Organiser of the event Dan Graf wanted to bring something to the area he believed unique and “Toowoomba was starved of,” wanting to deliver it to the region with a bang and that he did.
2016 ‘s edition of Man Date Festival saw some of Australia’s finest BBQ teams, breweries, barbers, beards, businesses, musicians & distilleries from all around the country who came together to deliver one hell of a day to remember!
The festival featured class acts such as the ‘Shank Brothers’, who cooked up a some sensational BBQ. Craft breweries ‘Stone & Wood’, ‘All Inn Brewing’ and ‘Croft Brewing Company’ who showcased a delightful selection of brews for tasting and indulging. ‘Best Australian Single Malt Whisky’ of the 2016, ‘Starward Whisky’ made an appearance and was lapped up by whisky loving enthusiasts. An amazing array of quality businesses and vendors in the ‘Marketplace’ inlcuding traditional barbers ‘Born Barbers Barbershop‘ who traveled all the way up from Glandore, Adelaide to attend the event and offer their second to none barbering skills, booking out for the day in the first 15mins!
Man Date Festival also hosted it’s first Beard & Stache competition which absolutely packed out the venue with festival attendees and a healthy handful of bearded talent present for the comp taking home some awesome trophies and prizes.
All in all the day proved very popular by the overwhelming response and positive feedback received by all who attended on the day.
