The Granny Smith Festival began in 1985 and is now regarded as one of Sydney’s largest street festivals, a true community carnival full of colour and good old fashioned fun.
When: Saturday 21st October 2017, 9am - 8pm
Where: Eastwood Shopping Precinct and Eastwood Oval, Eastwood 2122
Kids are in for a treat this year with stage entertainment, carnival rides, face painting, an animal farm and the new edition of 'Kids Hub - Sustainable Kids Play' at Eastwood Primary School, where kids can engage in interactive play with a focus on sustainability and the environment.
Highlights also include:
Grand Street Parade The entertainment kicks off at 9.30am, where the streets of Eastwood transform into a swirling sea of colour and sound featuring marching bands, community floats, dancers and of course Granny Smith and the Festival mascot ‘Sweetie Pie’.
Stalls Bargain hunters won’t be disappointed with the treats and treasures to be found with over 250 street stalls across the Festival site.
The Big Apple Singing Comp Here's your chance to show off your singing talents on the big stage! A karaoke competition with prizes to be won in two categories: Under 15s and 15 and Over.
Take a ride on the Giant Ferris Wheel, a new addition to the carnival fun on Eastwood Oval.
