Barbecue eats are set to reign supreme this month, when the annual Sizzlefest returns to the Prahran Market. The free event fires up the southside food precinct from Friday, March 26, to Sunday, March 28, this time delivering three big days of flame-driven celebrations.

Across a series of day and evening sessions (12–5pm daily, plus ticketed events from 5–10pm Friday and Saturday), Market Square will come alive with pop-up stalls slinging an array of grilled delights, while the Mezzanine plays host to a Burnley Brewing pop-up beer garden, complete with live, local tunes and performances. You can level-up your skills with a program of workshops and cooking demos in the Prahran Market Kitchen — including classes run by the local barbecue experts at The Que Club — and tuck into barbecue-inspired food specials from your favourite market traders.

As for the famed Sausage Tasting Competition, it has also been given a shake-up, now running across three ticketed sessions. Once again, it'll see some of the market's top butchers battle it out for the title of champion snag, as voted by the public. To help pick the winner, grab a ticket and you'll score a sample plate featuring each of this year's sausage creations, plus a drink voucher for the beer garden.

The full program will be available over at the Prahran Market website soon, along with tickets.
