Each year The Rose Hotel hosts a street party to raise money for local charity. They close off Leicester Street, put on a few bands, cook up some street food, and run some raffles and auctions through the afternoon. This year they have chosen Fitzroy Adventure Playground (Cubbies) as their charity due to them facing over $100,000 worth of federal budget cuts.
This year marks the 15th Rose Hotel Street party and it may be the biggest yet, with help from numerous food, wine and beer sponsors. For more information see the Facebook event. It’s at 406 Napier St (corner of Leicester St), Fitzroy from 12pm.
