Bite and Brew Cancellation

One of the hardest decisions by an event organiser is to cancel an event; however following consultation with the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) this morning, Burnie City Council has decided to cancel this Friday night’s Bite & Brew event which was to be held in the Civic Plaza. 

The forecasted winds for Friday of above 50km/h from 11am are considered unsafe for patrons, food and beverage vendors as well as staff working at the event.   

Burnie City Council Mayor Steve Kons said “Much consideration had been given to relocating the event indoors, however while this sounds like an easy solution it would have meant that most of the food vendors would have been outside due to their use of gas for cooking, and would have resulted in splitting the event.  

“Burnie Bite & Brew has been designed as an event that brings food, drinks, music and people together, and this is what we need to preserve.” 

“For those who had planned their evening around Burnie Bite & Brew we apologise. 

“The next Burnie Bite & Brew event will be on New Year’s Eve, with a follow up Bite & Brew to be held in February 2020. 

“We look forward to seeing you at Burnie Bite & Brew New Year’s Eve on Burnie’s waterfront.”
