Sydney Streets come alive again on six weekends in 2024

The City of Sydney is throwing a bunch of alfresco street events and everyone's invited

By Time Out in association with City of Sydney

Hot on the heels of 2023’s wildly successful series of street celebrations, the City of Sydney is once again spreading the love for our local neighbourhoods with another calendar of community-building events. The aptly named Sydney Streets series invites Sydneysiders to discover the wonders waiting just beyond their doorsteps with a festival atmosphere, roving entertainment and pop-up stalls from local venues.

Six major inner-city high streets across the City of Sydney will be closed to traffic on selected weekends this year, transforming them into pedestrian-only promenades filled with alfresco dining zones, pop-up eateries and cool activations from nearby businesses. This makes it the perfect place to chat with local makers and sample top-notch treats from our city’s greatest chefs.

The fifth Sydney Streets series will kick off on Macleay Street in Potts Point, with a full day of family fun and festival vibes on Saturday, February 17. This will be followed by alfresco events on Stanley Street in Darlinghurst on February 24, Glebe Point Road on March 9, Redfern Street on March 16, Harris Street on March 23, and Crown Street in Surry Hills on April 6.

Sydney Streets are dog-friendly and fully accessible, making 2024's events the perfect outing for families as well as those looking for a new way to spend a day or evening out exploring their local area. More details will be dropping in the coming weeks, so be sure to check back on their website for more info on what to expect.
