Looking to wind down after silly season in search of a wholesome way to spend a summer's day? Well, The Rocks is here to the rescue thanks to its string of pop-up events set to take over the harbourside precinct till the end of summer.
First up is The Rocks Art Trail (December 28–February 28), which is an artist, maker and designer trail championing local retailers throughout The Rocks' cobblestone streets. Then, hit up The Rocks' Gin and Toning event, happening every Wednesday from January 20–February 24. The event kicks off at 5.30pm with a free pilates class in First Fleet Park, then, after attending, you'll score a free gin cocktail voucher to use at Sergeant Lok that evening. Or, you can kick back at The Argyle's openair cinema on a Wednesday instead, which is screening the likes of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Wedding Crashers over summer. And, for a pre- or post-movie tipple, sip Iced VoVo and Fruit Tingle-inspired margaritas at El Camino Cantina.
You can also head to the year-round The Rocks Markets, which is once again running on Fridays from 10am–3pm, as well as on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am–5pm. Here, you can pick up an array of goodies and even get bendy with its free outdoor yoga sessions.
The precinct is also set to be a hive of activity come January 26, with a specialty high tea by way of Tea Cosy — think fairy bread, Vegemite sangas and lamington iced tea galore. Plus, there'll be roving performers and entertainment and a kids' corner at First Fleet Park.
The Rocks Goes Pop runs from December 27, 2020 through February 28, 2021. For more details, head to therocks.com.au.
