Cheech & Chong. Woody & Buzz. Holmes & Watson. Thelma & Louise. Beavis & Butthead. Chicken And…Beer. A list of iconic duos to be sure, and while most of those are fictional characters you can watch on TV, the last one is something you’ll be able to experience in real life at the inaugural Chicken & Beer Festival. Taking over Subiaco Market Square for the entire ANZAC Day long weekend in late April, you’ll have the opportunity to experience every finger lickin’ type of chicken you can imagine, along with plenty of fun like footy on the big screen, buskers, silent discos, carnival rides, garden games and more.
