Newtown Festival 2010
By now you probably already know that Newtown is the Bohemian capital of Sydney. There is always something hip and happening in Newtown and the residents are warm, friendly and slightly odd (In a good way). I absolutely love spending time there!
The Newtown Festival is on this Sunday 14 November 2010; 9:30am - 5:30pm @ The Camperdown Rest Park – See map below. The festival is so easy to get to – right near the strain station. It will take about 15 mins from Town Hall Station. Take the inner west train (CityRail) on platform 1 to Newtown. For timetables please see this page: www.131500.com.au
Join more than 80,000 locals and visitors as they converge for this amazing annual display of music, arts, food and shopping. There will be 3 music stages, a family and kids area, great entertainment including puppetry, poetry and tango dancing; a writers stage and the all important for Newtown locals, ‘eco area’ which will have a clothes swap – make sure you bring your unwanted clothes so you can exchange them for some new ones!
Don’t forget to bring your picnic blanket, packed lunch (or you can buy some delicious food here) lots of sunscreen (this event is mostly directly under the sun), bottle of wine, friends and a massive smile!
I will see you there!
