Messina Is Throwing A Massive Two-Day Party In Marrickville This Weekend

Some of the greatest gelato flavours that’ll ever touch your lips, offered next to a whole pig spit roast with some more street food and DJs thrown in for good measure. Sounds like the kind of party we’d like to attend. Fortunately, it’s all happening on May 12 and May 13 this weekend as Messina puts on a two-day launch event for its newly minted Marrickville HQ.

The massive new Messina base, which we wrote about a few things weeks ago, has been described as a Wonka-style dessert complex illustrating every single element of the Messina experience. You could watch the factory do its thing via ceiling-high glass walls, access the full range of Messina’s flavours and scope out all of Messina’s other products including brownies, cheesecakes, cookies and chocolate bars crafted from Ecuadorian and Peruvian cocoa and cocoa butter.

To deepen its roots in the Marrickville community, Messina has hooked up with some of the inner west’s suburb’s most reliable restaurants, the Middle Eastern-flavoured Baba’s Place and the protein-obsessed Whole Beast Butchery. Both will be taking care of the savoury treats during the two-day block party, while Messina obviously handles all things sugar, including a new special called the Key Lime Pie-Lova Sundae. Local favourites DNA Distillery are also coming on board to serve up rakija cocktails and tonic tinnies.

The Messina HQ car park will be cleared out for those two days and turned into a party space with all street food, including that pig spit roast, from noon and DJs at night.

All information about Messina’s Marrickville block party can be found on its blog including exactly what’s being served on the weekend. Messina’s Marrickville HQ can be found at 1 Rich Street, Marrickville.
