Newtown Festival is coming back to Sydney for it’s 38th year and as always, the line up is great and it’s all for a good cause. First – the line up. We’ll start with the food line up since it’s always going to be our first priority.
All of our favourite Newtown locals (about 300 of them – no really) will be setting up camp for the day and we’re talking about Black Star Pastry, Brewtown Newtown, Stanbuli, Young Henrys, Stinking Bishops and so many more. We always knew that Newtown had the foodie goods, but seeing them all listed in one beautiful line up, we’re suddenly wondering why we don’t hang out in Newtown every single day.
There will also be local performers taking to the stage throughout the day and stalls selling arts, crafts and fashion. In conclusion, there’s going to be plenty to keep you occupied for a few hours. Sydney’s own urban portraiture exhibition by photographer Jo Wallace, Humans of Newtown, will be at this year’s festival, which is fitting, since the entire festival is a neighbourhood event that is dedicated to keeping Newtown, well, Newtown.
All proceeds will support people at risk of homelessness in the inner west, so it’s a bloody good cause that we could all happily get behind, no doubt.
