Progressive Dinner Party Fundraiser

The Perth 200 Anniversary crew is excited to launch its second installment of an amazingly Progressive Dinner Party Poster Wintersuccessful fundraiser: Perth’s Progressive Dinner Party. Share a drink and laugh or two with friends and neighbours while experiencing the very best of Perth’s culinary offerings. You’ll complete a mini-walking tour of Perth’s downtown core while filling your belly at three different restaurants. You’ll also be helping to support the Perth 200th Anniversary Plans.

When: Saturday, April 23, 2016, 5 p.m.
Where: Three downtown Perth restaurants
Tickets are $65 each and there are only 60 available!

We hosted our first Progressive Dinner party last November, and it was So. Much. Fun. We sold out in six days, and expect a large number of the initial participants to come back again for a second round!

Here’s what the past participants had to say:

“Well done! Last evening was SUCH a great idea and SO well executed!  Myself and many others saw this as an event that we would attend monthly during the colder season especially. Thanks so much!”

“Wonderful evening last night.  Very well organized and enjoyable.  Looking forward to more of them in the future.”

“It was so well planned and all of the restaurants did a great job. The fact that they were so close together for a comfortable walk was such a good choice.  Also liked the plan of the whole group of 20 sitting together  to mingle and chat with new people at each location.”




Three popular Perth restaurants have signed on for an evening event on Saturday, April 23, 2016 for a progressive dinner party. Only selling 60 tickets, we’ll all meet up that evening at a prescribed location. The 60 participants will then get broken up into three groups of 20. Each group will be assigned to head out to the one of three restaurants. At the first restaurant, the group will experience amazing appetizers. They’ll then rotate and make their way to the next restaurant and dine on a delicious main course meal. The third and final restaurant will welcome the group for dessert. It’s a great way to test out local restaurant flavour while enjoying a night out and meeting new and old (as in, long-time) friends.

The evening’s registration will begin at 5 p.m. and you’ll hit up dessert at about 9 p.m. Tickets are $65 each and includes your appetizers, main meal, dessert, gratuity, taxes and ticket service fee.

This fundraiser wouldn’t happen without the participation of the following three restaurants:

1. How does this work?
It’s super simple: buy tickets, eat food, have fun! If you need more detail than that, read the concept outlined above, or send an email to and we’ll get back to you.
2. Do I get to pick where I am going to eat?
No! That is part of the fun of this type of evening – what we can guarantee however is that you’ll enjoy one course at each of our three restaurants.
3. Will I be able to sit with my friends?
Absolutely not. Just kidding. Kind of. Each venue will have different seating arrangements, but we will do our best to keep your party together. If you’ve signed up with friends, let us know by shooting Cathy an email. But, remember – part of the fun is getting to chat with new (or future?) friends!
4. Are there vegetarian options?
Yes, but you need to let us know by email by April 10, 2016 so we can inform the restaurants well in advance.
5. Are drinks covered in my ticket fee?
No, your ticket covers your three-course meal. You will be responsible to settle up for any drinks you order.
6. What about gratuity/tips?
Gratuity on your meal is also included in your ticket price, but you are responsible for the gratuity on any beverages you order.
7. I bought my tickets. Now what?
Well, for starters, you can start daydreaming about all the glorious food you’ll experience. Following that, expect to get an email from us about one week before the event. We’ll outline the details to you in terms of where and when you will all meet, and more.
8. What if I participated last time, and want to ensure I get a different meal experience than last time?

Make sure you let Cathy know, so she can switch up your experience from last time. Please send her an email.

9. What if I have more questions?
No problem; send an email to and we’ll get back to you shortly!
