From huge glowing triffids to stunning large scale projection arts and pop up garden performances, Surry Hills Festival is back. Its unique arts program is ready to transform Sydney’s culturally vibrant suburb. Building up to the festival, celebrations kick off with the Spring into Surry Hills arts program. It’s bold and fun, celebrating the founding of Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre in the era of flower power (late 1960s/70s), the centre’s role in nurturing community, and the design and creative enterprises for which Surry Hills is famous.
Meet the locals, sample the ale and explore the heritage, art and architecture, visit the wonderful eateries and creative enterprises of Devonshire Street and surrounds with a series of especially curated tours from the Surry Hills Creative Precinct. There are 5 tours leading up to the festival, plus 2 tours across festival highlights on festival day.
Surry Hills Festival is a free family friendly day, packed with the trademark live music line-up, plus free tours, pop up spaces, nooks and crannies bursting with performance, local narratives, food and art. It’s an engaging showcase of what makes Surry Hills the heart of Sydney’s innovative creative district. Join the thousands of expected Sydneysiders for the unofficial welcoming of spring.
