CAFE AND BARS

Avoid the line-up: pre-order drinks and ice cream before the show, and they’ll be waiting for you at the interval.

Festival Theatre Café: Located in the lobby of the Festival Theatre, the café offers a wonderful selection of light lunch and dinner options, sweet treats, drinks and ice cream, as well as pre-ordered picnics.

Tom Patterson Theatre Café: Located in the lobby of the Tom Patterson Theatre, the café offers a wonderful selection of hot and cold meal items, reflecting local and seasonal delights.  Join us before the show, or stay after the performance to enjoy the waterfront ambiance and revel in the energy of this delightful new venue!

Terrace BBQ: Head inside and up the stairs to enjoy a BBQ lunch on the Festival Theatre Terrace on any matinée performance day at the Festival Theatre in July and August. Choose from beef burgers, black bean burgers or Perth County pork sausage. 

Theatre Bars: Enjoy snacks, beverages, wine, beer and ice cream at the Festival, Avon and Studio theatres.
