The Beaufort Street Network is encouraging all businesses to turn Inside Out.
Bringing merchandise, art, planters, welcome mats and seats out on to the footpath helps make Beaufort Street more interesting and promote local businesses.
The Network is working with the Cities of Vincent and Stirling to make it easier to turn Inside Out. Some possible ideas for businesses are:
- Bring merchandise out on to the street for display and sale
- Create pop up installations outside your shop
- Display interesting objects in shop windows or on the footpath (e.g. public art pieces)
- Host a pop up performance inside or outside the shop (e.g. buskers, yoga classes, book readings)
- Bring temporary chairs or pot plants outside your business to provide comfort and greenery for passing pedestrians
- Alfresco food and drinks
The first Inside Out event was held on Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May 2020. It was a trial to help us progress the idea. Here are some of the pictures from the weekend.
Inside Out is on this weekend on Beaufort Street.
Local businesses will be activating the street by bringing merchandise, seats and music out on to the footpath. This has never been done in Perth before as a street-long event. So come down and check it out. It’s on from Chatsworth Road, Highgate to Inglewood.

The end of April nears and the ‘Inside/Out’ event is coming to Beaufort Street, seeing the retailers come out from behind their counters to spill their wares onto the street.
On the weekend of April 30 and May 1, the fabulous shops of Beaufort Street are going to bring their insides out – their shop wares of course. The action packed weekend organised by the good people of the Beaufort Street Network will see the street’s retailers trundle out their best to enjoy a carnival-like atmosphere of activity. And of course the public is needed to complete the party.
“Local businesses will be the star attraction of this concept. We’re hoping that this street activation will entice locals and those further afield to fossick and find unique treasures.
“Bring your friends, family, kids and fur babies to enjoy buskers and street fun. There could be no better time than to enjoy a leisurely stroll along our beloved Street,” said Beaufort Street Network Chair Pam Herron.
An even bigger bonus will be the launch of the revamped Beaufort Street Artisan Market on Sunday the 1st of May.
“We’re appealing to all those locals who love living here to support our local shops who are giving that extra yard with a unique street-side experience,” said Pam.
“Beaufort Street constantly surprises with a unique blend of merchants that offer diversity and interest. Come join the Inside/Out experience on April 30th or the first of May or both. You can never have too much of a good thing!”
Inside Out is presented by the Beaufort Street Network in partnership with community group Inglewood on Beaufort. The event will stretch from Brisbane Street all the way up to Inglewood.
Further details can be found at both the Beaufort Street Network Facebook Page and on the webpage – https://beaufortstreet.com.au/inside-out-weekend/.
