It's a decades-old inner-west tradition: watching the Newtown Jets' home footy game from up on the hill at Henson Park, that is. But things have been dialed up a few notches over the years with the introduction of The Beer, Footy & Food Festival. After a two-year pandemic-related hiatus — and then multiple weather-related postponements — the beloved festival returned in April of this year, but after so long out of the game, the team behind the festivities has decided to return for a second 2022 edition.

A good time for footy lovers, foodies and everyone in between, the event is set to dish up a huge afternoon of family-friendly fun. As well as the match-up between the Inner West's two most beloved footy sides — the Jets and the South Sydney Rabbitohs — you can expect a celebration of another Inner West triumph: craft beer. Keep that thirst in check with drops from 33 different brewers, including GrifterWaywardBatch, Yulli's Brews, Young HenrysHawke's, Willie The Boatman, Glebe Brewing Co, Brickworks and a heap more.

Doom Juice will also be onsite pouring glasses of natural, minimal-intervention wines to enjoy while you watch the game.

And, organisers have roped in a good number of food vendors, too. Get ready to enjoy snacks from the likes of BushHappy as Larry, Brooklyn Boys Bagels, Good Ways Deli, and Sparky's Jerk BBQ among others.

And make sure you pack your footy so you can take part in the post-match kick-around on the hallowed turf of Henson Park.
