Festibowl is Perth’s original Lawn Bowls pop-up festival, running throughout the summer. Freshly cut grass beneath your feet, blue sky above, ice cold drink in hand, sizzling street food aromas wafting through the air and lively beats for those who boogie, it is a wonderful festival rock n’ bowl night out.
Turning lawn bowling on its head at the first ever Festibowl- Lawn bowling has long been associated with the older members of our society. However, a new form of bowling is attracting a younger audience. This March, Festibowl is taking over Leederville Sporting Club every Sunday for its inaugural festival.
Rolling into Leederville this March, the quintessentially Australian sport of lawn bowls getting a 21st Century makeover and you’re invited to be part of it.

Of course, no modern festival is complete without some scrumptious summer food and drink. Head to the onsite bar for an ice-cold beverage, then explore the sizzling street food options including Korean BBQ, Jerk Chicken, Moroccan delights. Festibowl will be showcasing a fortnightly themed rotating food festival including Curry Festival, Fried Chicken Festival, Bao Festivals keeping our guests eager to return again and again. Matches are free to spectate so feel free to kick back, relax and soak up the atmosphere.
Organisers of Festibowl, Jordan Sitaram and Ryan Mead from Aus Street Food Events said: “Barefoot bowling is the perfect way to bring people together to enjoy the Australian summer. We’ve been passionate about bringing this lively version of the sport to Perth over the last three years and we are delighted to be launching Festibowl, the first festival of its kind, in Australia this year. Traditional Lawn Bowls clubs are struggling for members and we hope that Festibowl is a reminder of how we should cherish this great Australian sport and stop its decline. We’ve had a great response from bowls clubs up and down the country, and we’re delighted to play a role in helping to bring bowls into the 21st Century”
