Cockatoo Island Extravaganza


The 18th Biennale of Sydney selected Forte as their external caterer for their exciting event period. This partnership saw Forte catering for multiple events in the lead up to the Biennale in various venues around Sydney. To kick off the festival, the opening night celebration was held in the Turbine Hall on Cockatoo Island  for 2000 of The Biennale’s artists and supporters. Guests arrived via a fleet of ferries and boats that departed Circular Quay throughout the early evening.

On arrival at the island, guests were guided through the dog leg tunnel and around to the Turbine Hall and entered the event space. Forte Catering & Events worked closely with Biennale in designing and constructing the food and beverage service points for the evening. Due to the large number of guests attending it was imperative that the planning and offerings were appropriate to ensure guests were well looked after on a chilly winter’s evening. Live cooking stations of traditional Spanish chorizo & crusty rolls and BBQ brochettes were accompanied by elaborate cheese stations and canapés served around to guests.
