Find a whole day of wholesome fun at this neighbourhood festival
They’re setting up market stalls, a musical mainstage, kids’ play space and even a jumping castle all the way down Marrickville Road for the Dulwich Hill Fair. This annual get together for Inner West neighbours offers an extensive program, with all-day activities and scheduled performances by well-known artists, local school music groups, plus dance acts and martial arts demonstrations.
You’ll see the Redfern Dance Company on the mainstage, alongside indie-rock troupe Dande and the Lion, the lady powered seven-piece musical collective Big Sky Mountain and the Inner West champion rock and roll headliners Fox Company. At the dedicated kids’ play park, the littluns will be entertained by interactive dance performances, self-defense classes and meet-and-greets with native Australian wildlife.
All this action will get tummies rumbling, so head to the food stalls and find a fresh prawn roll, a hearty paella, a traditionally fantastic Greek gyros or a sweet something from the baked goods stalls. While you’re there, you can check out all the locally crafted homewares, ethical fashion and handmade jewellery throughout the markets.
