Sneakerland

Saturday, June 4, 11am-5pm, RAC Arena

Australia’s largest sneaker and streetwear convention, Sneakerland, is back after being postponed in March because of capacity restrictions.

Presented by 2WAY, the Perth-based team behind the inaugural event and the recent Perth Summer Jam, the event gives ‘sneakerheads’, collectors, resellers, content creators and anyone like-minded the opportunity to buy, sell, trade and lay eyes on some of the rarest sneakers, streetwear pieces and apparel on the market.

This time around, expect to again see some of the most exclusive sneakers and streetwear pieces in the world, giveaways with more than $30,000 worth of prizes, vendors to shop, exclusive clothing and sneaker releases, live auctions, a sneaker museum, and free haircuts and hair braiding.

For tickets and more information, go to sneakerland.com.au.

Taming a Tumultuous Palette

Today until June 19, Linton & Kay Gallery, 299 Railway Road Subiaco

A new exhibition from acclaimed West Australian artist Leon Pericles is now open and features his latest painting, mixed media and etching works, exploring translucency, layers and colours, the power and subtlety of transparent and opaque, and the tumultuous palette in between.

Pericles’ solo exhibitions are much anticipated, and this will be his first in WA since a 50 Year Retrospective in 2018.

This exhibition will feature all new and one-off works, including his latest etching, Seconds Before Goff and Sue’s Life Changed Forever.

Don’t miss the chance to see Pericles’ unique work up close.

Suburban Vibes

Sunday, 2.30-8.30pm, Cottesloe Civic Centre Gardens

This family-friendly concert is co-headlined by folk/blues singer-songwriter Kim Churchill and Perth’s Katy Steele with special guests Alivan Blu and Helen Shanahan.

The unique Sunday session is one for the whole family and offers the chance to listen to folk favourites and experience one more concert outside before winter begins.

Come along with a BYO picnic and enjoy the panoramic ocean views, and a sunset like no other.

The event is BYO food and drinks, while a food van will also be on site.

Tickets available from humantix.

Perth Indoor Jungle Festival

Today, 9am-3pm, Perth City Farm

Whether it’s a monstera or mother-in-law’s tongue, green thumbs will be jumping at the chance to snap up even more indoor plants at this festival dedicated to sharing the joy of filling your home with plants.

You might already live in an indoor jungle or could just be starting out your collection, but there is plenty on offer for everyone, with a huge range of plants and accessories on sale, workshops to create items like terrariums, macrame pot hangers and kokedama and talks and demonstrations from indoor plant experts on topics like propagation, rare plants and interior design.
