You know that winter is coming to a close when the parties start spilling into the streets again. Case in point: Eat Your Heart Out Liverpool. On Saturday, August 25, the south west Sydney fiesta will return for the second year running. This time it’s coming to Railway Street and it’s bringing with it live music and performance, food, market stalls, carnival games and art.
If consuming all that music and art has left you with a raging hunger, you’ll be pleased to know that there’ll be food options galore. Dirty Bird, Berlin Bangers, Feast of the East and Dutch Poffertjes House are just a few of the food stalls that will roll into Liverpool, and local pub Macquarie Bistro will also be running a pop-up restaurant in a shipping container for the day. Or, opt for a ticketed Taste Tour for a guided tour of Liverpool’s best spots. The tours cost $60 per person and run from 1–3pm, so you’ll still have plenty of time to check out the rest of the market stalls and play with some giant lego from Garden Games afterwards.
There will also be performances by Thandi Phoenix, six-piece reggae band Manutabu, Gang of Brothers, The Strides and Turquoise Prince as well as dance troupe Shaun Parker and Co. Meanwhile, Sydney-based artist Melissa Carey will create a huge heart sculpture that will arch over Railway Street as the festival centrepiece.
