Time Out says
The beloved community festival has lined up another year of super chill park hangs
This inclusive Inner West party celebrates Newtown’s tight-knit community with a full day of music, art, food, markets and animal friends. Run primarily as a fundraiser for the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre (NNC), the annual event aims to support disadvantaged groups, such as people facing homelessness, living with mental illness or those from diverse linguistic backgrounds.
The festival usually sees around 40,000 punters on the grass at Camperdown Memorial Rest Park. For the last two years, even more people enjoyed the extra gigs, street art, workshops and talks at the NCC Festival Series, which ran throughout October and November.
The festival's keen focus on sustainability practices continues this year, alongside their partnership with the Sydney Sustainability Centre. They’re pulling out all the renewable stops, using green energy sources, banning plastic from the festival, hosting sustainable living workshops and providing festival goers with reusable items.
We're yet to see the full festival program for 2019, but finger's crossed that party starters Heaps Gay return with more glittering dance parties, alongside the beloved writers’ tent, where bookworms can talk politics, history, family and fiction before being charmed by pooches at the very cute dog show.
