A Community Celebration of Surry Hills
Surry Hills has had a facelift, so to celebrate all the rejuvenated parks and new pocket parks we’re having a picnic! Grab a walking map of all the great new places to explore. Visit one, visit them all and have a rolling picnic on the day. There will be loads of entertainers roving from park to park on the day, plus plenty of prizes to be won. It’s an event you don’t want to miss…
Surry Hills is full of parks and outdoor spaces, but rarely are they used together. All that will change on Sunday February 23 when the neighbourhood celebrates PICNIC, an event which is part of the official Sydney Mardi Gras Festival program for 2020.
The idea is that local cafes, restaurants and pubs will prepare picnic food, and picnickers will use a map to find out where they can locate everything from fresh summer snacks, delicious desserts and hearty lunches from participating outlets.
Pick up your preferred choice, take it away in eco-friendly packaging, buy a specially produced Surry Hills PICNIC blanket and hit the local spots, from Shannon, Ward and Harmony Parks as well as entertainment, artists and DJ’s. If you want to bring your own picnic hamper, feel free.
Local pubs and cafes will be encouraged to create special PICNIC areas, where people can go as an alternative and as a Plan B if it is raining or the heat is too intense.
If you are a local eatery, café, pub or restaurant and would like to get involved, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org today.
