Sydney Streets festival is returning to Haymarket this Saturday 30 September 2023 for Moon Festival celebrations.
Sydney Streets Moon Festival will be the biggest Sydney Streets that Haymarket has seen, and a family-friendly event that introduces a vibrant and carnival atmosphere to the area, organised by the City of Sydney.
The festival will bring Chinatown and Haymarket roaring to life with street dining and entertainment from 11am-10pm. Dixon, Hay, Little Hay and Sussex streets will be pedestrian-only areas, with a live music stage on the corner of Dixon and Little Hay streets featuring performances all day. There will be roving street performers ranging from K-pop to traditional lion dancing, as well as a family-friendly circus playground on Sussex St. Select stalls will be selling products and street food throughout the day, with plenty of tables and chairs for sitting.
Lanterns, funded by Darling Square Community Bank, have been placed around Haymarket and delivered to local shops for decoration by the Haymarket Alliance (of which the Chamber is a founding member). Lanterns will also be available for sale at the Visit Haymarket stall on Dixon Street.
The beautifully decorated Lanterns Pavilion by Haymarket Institute is on the corner of Hay and Thomas Streets.
Mooncakes of all flavours will be available for sale around the precinct, including the popular mooncake stall inside Market City.
Market City will be hosting the spectacular high pole acrobatic lion dance at Level 1, Centre Court at 2pm, Saturday 30 September and 2pm, Sunday 1 October.
You can also join the free Move8 VR Walk-a-Hunt around Chinatown during Sydney Streets, where participants can solve a trove of clues left along a 3km route along the streets of Sydney’s Chinatown.
We look forward to seeing you for a day of fun at Sydney’s Chinatown on Saturday 30 Sep 2023 from 11 am – 10 pm.
