[Sponsored] Make the most of your weekend by recharging at this free riverside festival
The banks of the Nepean River will come to life this November when Real Festival returns to Penrith. Over two days (November 2-3) Real Festival will line the banks of the Nepean with artists, performers, food trucks, market stalls, music and more.
Real Festival is a free festival that wants you, your family and your mates to get off the couch and make the most of your weekend. Given the variety of scope at Real Festival, there’s no way you’ll want to spend your days off indoors. Consider yourself a daredevil? Real Festival 2018 will feature a trapeze school where you can learn the ropes, quite literally, on a ten-metre-high trapeze. For those who prefer to get their exercise on the water, there will be kayaks and stand-up paddleboards available for free hire too.
Get inspired with Real Festival’s creative highlights. During the day check out top Australian artists showcased in an outdoor gallery, while at night you can gaze in wonder at the illuminated and interactive sculptures lighting up the riverbank. Gardening Australia host Costa Georgiadis will be there if you're after some inspiration for your spring planting in the garden.
Unwind by the water in Real Festival’s snazzy shipping container rooftop café where you can sip coffee while admiring the river views. At night, trade your lattes for lagers at the festival’s outdoor bar and let loose with some live music. Or get your boogie on with a silent disco hosted by DJs.
Get down to Tench Reserve from November 2 to 3 to take part in Real Festival. Entry is free.
