Live entertainment, fabulous food, exhibitions, markets and so much more, Danks Street Festival has become a much loved event on Sydney’s calendar. Making its first appearance at the Festival this year is the Live Green Kitchen hosted by Lyndey Milan, with leading local chefs including Jared Ingersoll, Kylie Kwong, Alex Herbert, Dave Campbell and Ashley Hughes demonstrating cooking techniques that focus on sustainable food.

Also new for 2009 is a “Handmade Market” selling all the things you love about your local fete – everything from handcrafts to sweet treats, supporting local artists and charities.

There will be more performers than ever before in some surprise shows you’ll never forget and a great music line up that is guaranteed to have you cruising on a Sunday afternoon. Performers include The Donovans, Dimity Claire & The Bleeding Hearts, Danny & the Cosmic Tremors, EON Beats Project and DJ Suzie Q.
