Parramatta Lanes Online
Get ready for the ultimate food and arts palooza — in your own home.
in partnership with
The annual Parramatta Lanes festival is returning for its ninth year, bringing the finest feasts to the streets of the west. This year, thanks to COVID-19, the Paramatta palooza is moving its program online, but you can still expect the usual lineup of eats, beats and art.
First up, the food aspect will be a bunch of virtual cooking demonstrations from some local favourites such as fried chicken institution Butter Parramatta, Japanese-inspired salad bar Fishbowl, Aussie burger chain Betty's and KOI, owned by Masterchef Australia's Reynold. You can also head to any of the festival's participating restaurants for a feed, or order in and have the Parramatta Lanes experience brought to your living room.
Live tunes will be happening at various Parramatta venues, which you can also live-stream via the Parramatta Lanes website, with the likes of Donny Benet, Nardean, Youngn Lipz, Kwame, Milan Ring, Mariam Sawires and more on the bill.
Beyond that, there'll also be a bunch of art-based videos — think poetry readings against a backdrop of three-dimensional visuals, a feature on Aboriginal artists from Boomalli Gallery, drag and numerous dance performances.
