Top things to see and do for FREE in Perth in March
March is the favourite month for many locals and visitors of Perth. Summer has just ended, so there isn’t too many more of the sweltering days, but the weather is still warm and pleasant to get out and about. If this is you, Perth Hub has put together this list of top things to do and see for FREE in Perth this March.
Sculptures by the Sea
2022 marks the 18th year Sculpture by the Sea has brought the unique exhibition to the sands of Cottesloe. Stretching from the sea wall down to North Cottesloe and the neighbouring grassed areas, there is so much to take in from the minds of dozens of talented native and intentional artists. In between having a nosy, why not also take a quick dip to cool off?
Mandurah Crab Fest
Fan of seafood? Looking to get out of the city for the day? Mandurah Crab Fest is a local favourite, and while there certainly is a focus on crabs and their associated dishes, you can quickly be swept up in a range of experiences for food enthusiasts, awesome live music, competitions, demonstrations from professional chefs, and a selection of aquatic entertainment.
Night Noodle Markets
Authentic Asian cuisine and entertainment, set amid Elizabeth Quay, and illuminated with a range of colourful lights? Sign us up! The Night Noodle Markets is a favourite in Perth, with countless stalls offering a selection of fluffy bao buns, sticky skewers, refreshing beverages, sumptuous desserts and so much more. Entry is free, but be careful – with all of the tempting offers available, you can easily spend more than intended!
St. Patrick’s Festival & Parade
St. Patrick’s Day continues to spread in popularity from its origins in Irish culture and has become a staple in Perth for a seasonal celebration. For nearly a decade, the parade has been marching through the centre of Leederville, featuring a collection of marching bands, sports clubs, school groups, and even local businesses. This all finishes on Leederville Oval, where you will be met by a series of Irish dancers, musicians and singers, as well as stalls offering the goods from local businesses and artisans.
Hyde Park Festival
For over 35 years, the Hyde Park Festival has brought this community event to the locals, earning the title of one of the longest-running events in Perth’s history. Although entry is free, the festival itself provides major fundraising for the Rotary Club of North Perth, aiding organisations like a Path of Hope and other local charities. Visitors can meander through over 200 stalls offering a variety of goods, play on rides and join in on activities for all ages, and sit back and be thrilled by the main stage entertainment.
