Marrickville Festival 2019
An inner west street party with live music, free pickling workshops, a beer fest in a car park and a market for pets.
Marrickville's annual street festival will take over the inner west suburb once again on Sunday, October 20. Over 130 stalls will flood the streets in a full-day celebration of live music, local entertainment and international cuisine that champions Marrickville's multicultural community.
A massive lineup of local bands and acts handpicked by local venues Lazybones and Gasoline Pony will perform across two stages, and there'll be a slew of dance performances, too.
Local cafe favourite Cornersmith will be overseeing the new Local Market where you'll be able to attend free workshops in everything from pickling, beeswax wraps and burrata making, while an art and design alley will see you trying your hand at ceramics and screen printing.
Even your four-legged friends will be looked after, thanks to a mini Street Paws market with stalls offering pet treats, grooming and more.
Of course, there'll be a tonne of different food and drink options from local vendors, too. The Calvert Street car park will be transformed into a beer lover's paradise with pop-ups from Willie the Boatman, Batch, Sauce, Philter, The Grifter and Young Henrys. If hops aren't your thing, there'll also be a spritz bar.
To eat, you'll be able to choose from arepas, gozleme, bagels, okonomiyaki, croissants and creative doughnuts from Donut Papi — and so so much more. We suggest heading here with an empty stomach.
Marrickville Festival runs from 10am–5pm.
