Sydney Solstice South Eveleigh will see the historical streets come alive to showcase incredible food and live entertainment.
If you’re looking for the best events to add to your radar during the cooler months, we’ve found one of them. Say hello to Sydney Solstice, the brand new winter festival launched by Destination NSW. The event will be held from 8 to 20 June this year, and the eclectic line-up spans more than 200 different experiences at popular Sydney restaurants, pubs, precincts, art galleries, museums, and live music venues across the CBD, Darling Harbour, Newtown, Oxford Street and surrounds.
Sydney’s newest lifestyle destination and food mecca, South Eveleigh will celebrate the longest night of the year with an exciting two-day event on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 June as part of the festival. The heritage Locomotive Street will be transformed into a medley of activity – fusing performance, art installations, music, food, and beverage experiences.
Steeped in Australia’s technology and manufacturing history, South Eveleigh’s Locomotive Street has been lovingly restored into a vibrant showcase of eateries from some of Sydney’s top food operators, which will all be on show across the two-day free street festival event. Revelers will enjoy an array of menus from the highly anticipated new eatery from Kylie Kwong, the world’s first permanent no-waste bar Re by Matt Whiley, RaRa Chan, Eat Fuh, Whitton, Steve Costi’s Famous Fish, Fishbowl, Bekya, Pepper Seed Thai, Sushi Hon, North Sandwiches and Yoho Loco.
The South Eveleigh Community Rooftop Garden, run by Clarence Slockee of Jiwah, will run workshops across the two days seeking to educate participants on the native flora that is integral to the Indigenous heritage and land of South Eveleigh.
