The event celebrates the local food and art scene in South Eveleigh.
As part of the sprawling Sydney Solstice festivities South Eveleigh will be putting its best foot forward with its food, art and live entertainment scene. Set to take place on June 18 and 19, the South Eveleigh Solstice Festival will house a variety of exciting activities in a massive and free street festival.
Once home to an assortment of old railway sheds, Locomotive Street near Redfern Station, has since been refurbished but maintains its old world charm. You can expect the ambience across the two days to be informative but chilled out with something for everyone and a fun time for all.
Of the highlights of the 2-day festival, here are some events you can look forward to. An indigenous cultural and landscape design firm run by Clarence Slockee who oversee the South Eveleigh Community Rooftop Garden will be running extensive and informative workshops across two days. If you’re interested to learn more about native fauna, you’ll want to add this to your calendar.
Food lovers will be keen to explore eateries like Steve Costi’s Famous Fish, Fishbowl, Bekya, Pepper Seed Thai, Sushi Hon, North Sandwiches and Yoho Loco among others. Also on offer are an innovative new bar centred around sustainability and brought to you by Matt Whiley (Scout) and Maurice Terzini from the famed Icebergs Dining Room & Bar and Ciccia Bella. Plus there is also Kylie Kwong’s brand new lunch spot, Lucky Kwong featuring canteen-style and locally sourced treats that pack quite a punch. So needless to say, if you’re a food enthusiast you’ll have a lot to look forward to.
The South Eveleigh Solstice Festival aims to celebrate the local food, art, beverage and live music scene and blend it all into one big package of entertainment and fun over the 2 days. Find more information about the event here.
