• Comedy, Wine and Music Festival in the Pyrenees
Comedy, Wine and Music

The biggest comedy lineup the Pyrenees has ever seen is coming to town! Grapes of Mirth is heading to the Pyrenees for the first time - combining our three favourite things; comedy, wine & people.

On Sunday the 20th of October, get ready for 6 hours of comedy, music, wine, gourmet grub and good times. Five of Australia's best comedians, and of course your host, Merrick Watts.

Grapes of Mirth provides the ultimate festival day with five headline comedy sets, a host with the most, and some sweet DJ tunes. Only the best Pyrenees wines, locally produced beer & cider and plenty of gourmet grub on offer.

What you need to know

Where: Avoca Shire Turf Club, Racecourse Rd, Avoca VIC
When: Sunday 20 October 2019
Time: 12pm to 6pm

This is an 18+ event, because there are comedians involved, and well, because there are comedians involved. Strictly NO BYO food or beverage with the exception of sealed bottles of water. All tickets include your take-home glass.

This is a seated indoor event (chairs will be provided), with easy access to the lush lawns that surround the racecourse. Although not necessary, picnic rugs are permitted, but no other furniture will be allowed in. Empty soft cooler bags and water bottles are permitted (no eskys). Bag checks conducted upon entry for prohibited items.

If you are the ticket purchaser, you will receive an email with further important event information closer to the event date. We kindly ask that you forward this email or advise event details to friends and family for whom you purchased tickets.

Avoca Shire Turf Club

Rain, hail, or shine, this show will go on, as it will take place in an enormous function centre (at least twice as big as Donald Trump's hands) that will accommodate everyone seated comfortably. If the sun is out, there will be plenty of breaks to enjoy the outdoors with food and beverage in hand. The function centre conveniently opens up to the beautiful lawns surrounding the racecourse.

Don’t drive, bring your swag!

Make your visit to the Pyrenees a truly unique experience and camp or caravan at the racecourse. Kick start your weekend with the Blue Pyrenees Avoca Cup on Sat 19th, followed by Grapes of Mirth on the Sun 20th - all in the one location!

Campsites are unpowered and the toilet & shower facilities aren’t exactly 5 star, but for $15 per campsite I don’t think anyone will be complaining. Camping is available Friday to Sunday night, and can be booked here directly with the venue.

Pyrenees Wine on offer

This event at the racecourse is a regional affair; you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy wine on the day, from not one, but TEN WINE PRODUCERS! Talk about the entire wine region coming together.

DJ Pedro Moshman bringing the tunes

We have a travelling DJ, his name is Pedro Moshman, we never leave home without him - he'll keep the festival vibe going between sets and after the comedy show. Bring your dancing shoes if you like a bit of soul and funk.
