After a burst of popular events last year, Sydney Streets is back with a fresh new program for 2023.
Neighbourhoods will continue to become car-free zones over weekends this year. The events bring festival vibes to neighbourhoods with plenty of live music, entertainment and alfresco dining. Local business will be bringing their best with great deals, games and more, so get out and show them some love.
Sydney Streets on Darlinghurst Road and Macleay Street, Potts Point
Sydney WorldPride celebrations will add some sparkle to the day – expect DJs at The Roosevelt’s pop-up bar and Pride-themed cocktails including MarGayRitas from Bistro Rex. Local retailers will take special offers to the street and the El Alamein fountain area will be a hub for kids activities and games.
Sunday 19 February
Sydney Streets on Glebe Point Road, Glebe
Head on down to Glebe as the buzzing Glebe Point Road comes to life. Catch a live DJ at Ethiopian restaurant Jambo Jambo, dance performances at Latin Dance Australia and a food stall and music at Sri Lankan diner Kandy. Tommy’s Beer Garden will again pump out pretzels, pig rolls and sausages to the street. Don’t miss the reopening of the Glebe institution and popular vegetarian café Badde Manors.
Sunday 5 March
Sydney Streets on Redfern Street, Redfern
There are so many ways to enjoy the Sydney Streets in Redfern. You’ll find pop-up bars from The Tudor Hotel and The Redfern and Atomic Beer Project’s ‘Hoptimus’ truck will set up for games and a beer garden. The Sunshine Inn will partner with The Dock to host live bands and DJs, as well as a vinyl record fair. After huge popularity last year, Mark’d Tattoo will host another flash day, so you can skip their long waitlist for tattoos by signature artists.
Join a painting class for children and adults at Sydney Collective, indulge in special flavours at Donut Papi or sip frozen mangonadas from Itacate Mexican Deli.
