What's on?

Pyrmont Festival returns for its sixth year

10 Days of wine, food and art bringing together Pyrmont and the Mudgee Region in Sydney’s premier dining precinct.

Six years after first hitting the Pyrmont Precinct, Pyrmont Festival returns with a giant 10 day program to showcase the best of the Mudgee Region and Pyrmont.

Guests have the chance to experience both the country charm of the Mudgee Region, coupled with the best of the city, including a plethora of wine dinners and tastings, photographic exhibitions and art displays.

The highlight of the festival will be in the form of a two-day free headliner event at Pirrama Park on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21th May (11am – 5pm). An event designed for the whole family, with live music, local artists, rides and children’s’ entertainment and approximately 100 stalls where guests can meet wine-makers, participate in tastings and sample a broad range of fine foods.

Pyrmont Festival is a product of industry collaboration with Mudgee Region Tourism, Mid Western Regional Council and Mudgee Wine Grape Growers Association Inc, presented by Pyrmont Ultimo Chamber of Commerce (PUCC) with the support of the City of Sydney. It is a unique opportunity for Pyrmont, just two kilometres from the CBD, to demonstrate its position as one of Sydney’s fastest growing tourist, creative, cultural and dining precincts.

The Mudgee Region is a 3.5-hour drive from Sydney in Central NSW, and is one of the state’s first established wine regions. It is renowned for its food and wine with more than 40 family-run boutique wineries, as well as excellent art, music, nature and history experiences.
