It’s the season for creative and culinary events with Neon Playground in Chinatown and Eastside Unlocked taking over inner Sydney. Not one to be left behind, Surry Hills is now joining the show with its own food and drink festival this November. Guests can look forward to delicious food, specialty cocktails and live music at the event which has been dubbed the Heart of Surry Hills.
Set to take place across the four weeks of November, the jam-packed program will feature some of Surry Hills’ most popular and dynamic food venues in one massive showcase.
The Heart of Surry Hills
Although tailored around food and drink, the festival offers a holistic experience to attendees complete with art, markets and music. The program also includes a community art project, walking tours, and a free showcase event in Shannon Reserve featuring live music.
“This (Heart of Surry Hills) activation for the month of November highlights the very best of our world-class hospitality venues, distilleries, and breweries as well as connecting communities through art and music,” City of Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.
40 venues will be participating including Eileen’s bar at the Four Pillars Laboratory, The Blue Door, Tokki and Mille Vini. Exclusive food and drink menus will be curated with specialty dishes and cocktails.
Another event to look forward to is the monthly Vintage Market Day in Shannon Reserve where you can fill your bags with goodies and also enjoy live Jazz music featuring Virna Sinzone and Kate Wadey.
The event will close with a free two-day outdoor event on November 26 and 27. Gourmet food trucks and drinks from local beverage producers BRIX Distillers, Four Pillars Gin, Hawkes Brewing Co, and Yulli’s Brews will close the show. A community art project titled Art in the Park will also be showcased by the Surry Hills Community Centre.
One of Sydney’s most vibrant suburbs, Surry Hills is the go-to spot for food and music lovers and a stone’s throw away from the CBD. This vibrant new festival aims to showcase the many beloved venues of the bustling suburb along with providing a platform for local music talent.
