Come down to Pirrama Park this weekend for Pyrmont Festival. It is going to be huge! Wineries, distillers and breweries will be sharing the lawn with artisan producers and amazing ready-to-eat foods, local entertainment, kid’s activities and the kind of spectacular backdrop only this city can offer. 

Pyrmont Festival will finally get to commemorate its 10th Anniversary; the locals are ready to party and everyone is invited. Entry is absolutely FREE! 

This year the festival will feature wineries from some of the most prestigious wine regions in the state including:  Hunter (Tamburlaine, Leogate, Savannah Estate, Petersons Wines); Orange (Tamburlaine, Quilty & Gransden, Slow Wine Co, Highland Heritage, See Saw); and Mudgee (Gilbert Family Wines).

If you prefer whiskey and gin then visit the booth of family-owned distillery, Jones & Smith. Their Epoch gins are original, finely crafted and uniquely flavoured.  Brookies, from Cape Byron, will be there with a range of spectacular gins, nut liqueur, and pre-mixed cocktails. Crowd favourite, Pioneer Brewery are keeping it real with their custom selection of craft beers. 

There’s plenty of delicious ready-to-eat food and deli treats, plus the amazing Cheeky Oyster Bar, run by the experts from Sydney Fish Markets. Fantastic kid’s activities including oversized games, art and craft, face-painting and more. 

The Pyrmont Art Prize, hosted by TAP Gallery, has been an integral part of the festival since it began. Works from this year’s competition will be on display in the park. TAP Gallery will also be running painting workshops on Saturday and Sunday.

You can book ahead on the Pyrmont Festival website at www.pyrmontfestival.com.au/art  

Local entertainers will ramp up the vibe from two stages – the Sunset Stage and Harbourview Stage – at either end of the park. 

The weather forecast is Two Thumbs Up for Saturday and Sunday. The park is puddle-free so bring a picnic rug; there are tables and chairs too, if you prefer.  

Pyrmont Festival prides itself on being fully inclusive and family-friendly. Uniquely located at the point of the peninsula on the shore of Pyrmont Bay, historic Pirrama Park is the ideal setting for this fabulous food, wine and art event. Towering sandstone walls at the back of the park block out the rest of the world, leaving you to sit with a drink and enjoy the sparkling harbour and distant cityscape. 

The Pirrama Park is easily accessible via light rail (John St Square stop), bus (Route 389), ferry (Pyrmont Bay Wharf + 11 min walk), car (Wilson Carpark nearby) or bicycle.
