Bringing festival vibes to our local neighbourhoods

Parts of Potts Point, Surry Hills, Glebe, Redfern, Pyrmont, Haymarket and Darlinghurst will each be closed to traffic for a day and transformed into zones with live music, outdoor dining, games and entertainment for the whole family.  

Local businesses and organisations will host various in-store and pop-up attractions from dining and drink offers, giveaways to alfresco dining, competitions and classes.

Along with enabling road closures, we’ll provide some acoustic roving entertainment, chairs and tables around the street and portable toilets.

About Sydney Streets

Sydney Streets was originally created as part of our community recovery plan, supporting the economic and social recovery of businesses and local communities impacted by the pandemic.

Sydney Streets is supported by a comprehensive campaign including online and print advertising, signage, notifications across City of Sydney facilities along with social media and media.

Our landing destination is What’s On – a one-stop hub to find the best things to do in Sydney.
