September Extends Inner West Event Season

Sydney Fringe Festival, Dulwich Hill Village Fair and Big Bike Week headline a busy month of community events across the inner west in September.

Sydney Fringe Festival will launch a month long program of cultural and performance activities in the inner west from a base in Annandale in September.

Sydney Fringe this year will also present a number of events in the new Camperdown Arts Precinct, a hub of art, food, recreation and community.

Administrator Richard Pearson said for the first time in 2016, Sydney Fringe together with Council will also unveil and enliven a new Sydney cultural precinct ‘Off Broadway’.

“The Fringe and Off Broadway will bring pop-up spaces, performances and street activations to a previously disused strip of Parramatta Road that has potential to become a permanent vibrant creative precinct long beyond the month of the Festival,” he said.

“Camperdown Park will also celebrate an upgrade by playing host to a family movie screened in the park on 17 September and an Edwardian inspired family cricket and picnic day on 18 September also as part of the Fringe Festival.”

The colourful Camperdown Precinct includes the newly upgraded Camperdown Park and the refurbished Camperdown Bowling Club (featuring the Camperdown Commons urban farm, community spaces and eatery), the Chrissie Cotter Gallery, and the Art Camp studios. As well as the new playground and sports facilities, Camperdown Park now also boasts a ‘youth zone’ with removable art walls and outdoor table tennis tables.

The official launch of Off Broadway at the Sydney Fringe is in Gehrig Lane, Annandale on Sunday 11 September, 3pm-6pm.

Also featuring this month, Dulwich Hill Village Fair on Sunday 11 September (10am-4pm) celebrates the delights of Dulwich Hill and living in the inner west.

Based at the northern end of Marrickville Rd at Dulwich Hill, festival goers can expect live entertainment, children's activities and a huge mix of market stalls including handicrafts, home wares, children's toys and clothing and homemade preserves and sweets as well as a host of local foods including cakes, pastries, coffee, cheese and deli items.

Big Bike Day, to be held at War Memorial Park in Lilyfield from 10am to 2.30pm on Sunday 25 September is the feature inner west annual event of Big Bike Week held across NSW. The day features entertainment, free bike workshops, bike maintenance, and a group bike ride.
