UPtown Festival 2017 - Our Stories
October 28, 2017, 10:30am - October 28, 2017, 4:00pm
Bursting back onto the local scene after a 5-year hiatus, UPtown Festival is back!
The small community event had its humble beginnings in 1981 and over time has culminated into an all-day multicultural arts, music, entertainment and food extravaganza featuring performance stages, high-profile artists and drawing attendees from all around Sydney.
The comeback event promises to take up where 2012 left off, with two stages providing continuous entertainment including flamenco and indigenous performers, local choirs, bands, and children’s entertainers. Be sure to check out the street section including live mural painting, roaming performers, and tropical house DJs. Also, get involved with the artist-led interactive workshops.

There will be more than 35 stalls offering the best flavours from Pyrmont and Ultimo, special treats, clothing, gifts and lots more. From burgers to dumplings, gelato to crepes, you will be spoilt for choice.
In celebration of the festival theme “Our Stories”, we’ve created a photographic exhibition featuring faces from the local community and their stories. The photos will be on display at the festival and an exhibition before the festival, with more details to come.
Auslan Interpreters will be available at the Main Stage and Kids Tent.
