Parramatta Lanes is back from 15 – 18 October. Indulge in over 50 food stalls and pop-up bars and an incredible program of live music acts and art installations peppered throughout 14 activated lanes.
Get your live music fix with an impressive selection of musicians and DJs hitting the streets over four jam-packed nights. Discover the next big thing at FBi Emporium, where local Sydney talent will take to the mic. Or if you’re seeking something else, you’ll hear tunes from K-pop to Bollywood, 90’s classics and future jazz as you wander the festival.
It’s game on with retro favourites reinvented at Eat Street Rooftop’s ‘Old Skool Party’ complete with rave bingo from Bingo Loco and a human-sized Pacman Maze.
With food options from all over the world ready and waiting to tempt your tastebuds, you’ll want to arrive at Parramatta Lanes on an empty stomach. From Middle Eastern delights to Southeast Asian street food, spicy Indian treats, and ultimate BBQ feasts, the only thing you need to worry about is finding room for dessert.
There will also be several art installations on display throughout Parramatta Lanes.
Wasting Oceans, an immersive experience created by Amigo and Amigo in collaboration with students from Parramatta Marist High School, highlighting the impact of man-made waste on our oceans, and a bright and joyful sensory experience in Scholar Garden by resident Parramatta Artists’ Studios artist Louise Zhang.
Nick Athanasiou from Skunk Control has created Floating Landscapes, an artwork comprising of flowers illuminating from the sky and metaphorically relaying the connectedness of Parramatta’s future.
Over by the river foreshore you’ll find Plasma by Renzo B. Larriviere and Paul Steven Pena Castro, where visitors can absorb in an organic reflection of energy and light, and walk, sit and climb within and around the sculpture.
Throughout the lanes you’ll see Our Intertwining Lives by Nadia Odlum. It’s an abstract work exploring the perceptual experience of navigation in urban environments, expressing the ways our paths cross with others, and the dynamic moments of interaction that arise as we move through our city spaces.
