Marrickville Council presents year two of Open Marrickville, a community celebration of the many cultural pieces that make up this vibrant corner of Sydney. Over ten days and multiples venues, it's sure to tick more than a few boxes with Indigenous dance, Greek pagan water celebrations and many more snapshots of the 'ville on offer.

Beeline to Marrickville Park this Thursday for the kick off with Patrick O’Rourke's Collected Visions. Treat yourself to this series of drawings inspired by images from the local library and using found objects to trace a history of the suburb. Proving that the key to multicultural harmony really is our taste buds, Cuisines of the World in Marrickville promises to reveal the secrets of perfecting tabouleh and many other ethnic favourites over six days. Or head over to the Red Rattler and heat things up a bit with the adults-only event Cabaret in the 'Ville by Blackcat productions, a fun-filled ponder on questions of Marrickville — with the promise of some nudity.

Get the full details from the Marrickville Council website.
