Lane Cove Festival – September 2018

The Lane Cove Festival (used to be called the Cameraygal Festival) has a month long programme of events.  The Festival is filled with events that celebrate Lane Cove’s history, landscape, lifestyle and community. There is something for everyone during the festival: live music, workshops, film screenings, exhibitions, talks, walks, gatherings, sporting activities and more.  Check out the events here.

Indian Bazaar – 15th September 2018

A highlight on the Lane Cove calendar is the Jesuit Mission’s Indian Bazaar held every year in September at St Ignatius College Riverview.

More than 5,000 people of all ages will flock to the event for a day of activities, bargains, rides, music, shows, raffles, prizes, food, spruiking and all out fun.

Now in its 67th year, all funds raised from the annual event go to support the Jesuit Mission’s community development work in over ten countries across Asia and Africa.

It’s a must do event if you love rides, hamburgers, scones, champers and oysters and hams.  The ham wheel is a highlight.
