South Eveleigh has seen a real resurgence in recent years, transforming into a hub for innovative companies and boasting an array of exciting eateries by hospo heavyweights. Now, the inner west suburb is getting its own block party this October. There's a jam-packed lineup of cultural, community, art and music events across Locomotive Street, The Eveleigh and Village Square on Thursday, October 5 and Friday, October 6.

Art installations will take over Locomotive Street, while outdoor licensed seating and a DJ stage will pop up at the Locomotive Stage. Party-goers can get a drink and listen to sets by DJs such as Adi Toohey, Andras, Noise In My Head and Yemi Sul from 4–10pm.

The Eveleigh will become the musical heart of the festival with performances by Donny Benet, Ngaiire, A. Girl, Reyanna Maria, Soju Gang and Eddy Diamond taking place alongside an all-ages pilates class by XTEND and a kids' rave.

Family-friendly fun will take over Village Square — families can learn about Indigenous Australian cultures at the Weaving and Cultural Conversation workshop with Nadeena Dixon, watch performances by Deep Sea Astronauts, try their hand at 80s aerobics at Village Square Retrosweat, meet Sydney Swans AFLW player Aliesha Newman or take part in a kids' boxing session hosted by Tribal Warrior. There'll also be a community mural project — conveniently located at Anita Gelato — and Potting Shed sessions at the Rooftop Garden.
