Rise and shine with the Sydney Shimmer Festival set to take place this October. The four-day celebration features a range of fun activities including live performances, food and art installations. The festival is part of the CBDs Revitalisation Program and will take over Taylor Square, Forbes and Bourke Streets, up to Burton Street.
Sydney Shimmer Festival
The festival has been aptly named thanks to its glittering line-up of events. There’s roving performers, creator and makers markets, music and lots of good food to enjoy.
Expect performances by Melbourne neo-soul boss WILSN, Wadawurrung man and October Records producer Moss and a dazzling cabaret and dance show called Aerobicide. Plus drag performer Jimi The Kween and beatboxer Tanya George will bring the party vibes to the inner-city suburb.
Member of the Legislative Council Chris Rath calls the event “A festival that advocates for inclusivity, celebration, community and fun.”
The Sydney Shimmer Festival takes place from October 13-16 with a bunch of local businesses and creatives participating. Festivities kick off with a Gala Dinner and tickets include a three-course meal and a cabaret show. Head to their official website for more details.
