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.
