Kensington Street will once again turn the precinct pink for the month of September as the official Sydney Fringe Festival Village for 2018 with two block parties scheduled for the month.
Beat goes on
Eats | Beats | Street on September 8 will see the street play host to some of Sydney’s most exciting and talented street artists and performers, while the The Last Supper will close the festival on September 30 with a feast for the senses.
Discover the Soul of Sydney
Designed to put the ‘art’ back into party, Eats | Beats | Street will showcase Sydney’s emerging artistic community with live street art installations, quirky performance art, pop-up bars, acoustic sessions and street beats by Soul of Sydney kicking off from 4 pm.
Eats | Beats | Street will see restaurants Olio, Eastside Kitchen + Bar, Mekong and Bistro Gavroche spill onto the pavement with perfect sample-sized portions from their menus while those hankering for a la carte can detour to eateries such as the Rum Store.
Celebration of the sanga
A1 Canteen, the newest venture by chef Clayton Wells, will be showing off its strength with a range of stellar sangas, Urban Cellar Door Handpicked Wines will have its top picks across the pop-up bars and bolthole Gin Lane will be serving delicious concoctions in its extended bar during the day.
Spice it up
Head over to institution Spice Alley where 10 top hawkers will be serving an array of Asian street food dishes from morning till night. Those who want to continue the party can join the conga line over to the official after party at The Lord Gladstone Hotel.
This year, Kensington Street will also host the Sydney Fringe Festival event, The Last Supper. The event invites diners to “pay tribute to the decadence of taste and the indulgence of expression”.
The Last Supper will be held for one night only, on Sunday September 30 at 5pm and 7.30pm. On the night, Last Supper tables will be hosted at Olio, Eastside, Mekong and Bistro Gavroche, where a three course dinner package will be paired with wild entertainment.
