The beloved community festival is ready and raring for another year of fun and super chill park hangs
It’s the big 4-0 for this inclusive Inner West party that 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.
Last year the festival saw more than 40,000 punters on the grass at Camperdown Memorial Rest Park, and more people enjoying the extra gigs, street art, workshops and talks for the first NCC Festival Series which ran throughout October and November. This extended line-up will return this year, with a reinvigorated message of environmental sustainability.
For the main event on November 11, your $5 entry donation will give you access to the full day of entertainment, but for $10 you’ll also receive a reusable water bottle. Partnering with the Sydney Sustainability Centre, they’re pulling out all the renewable stops, using green energy sources, banning plastic from the festival, using a worm farm to break down food waste and hosting sustainable living workshops.
Stay tuned for the full festival program, but prepare yourself for a superb mix of creativity and cuteness with the return of the beloved writers tent and dog show.
