Lane Cove River Festival 1st to 10th 2018

Get Ready to celebrate the Lane Cove River Festival between 1-10 November 2018

The festival is  two weeks of activities along foreshores, in parks and on the doorsteps of community groups that call the river home.  The two biggest events of the Festival are:

Greenwich Village Arts Trail; and
Food and Wine By the River.

Food and Wine By the River

The Lane Cove Food and Wine Festival by the River is now in its 4th Year and it is a “Must Do” local event. Combining the best of Lane Cove with the best of the country, this popular Lane Cove Council-run event last year attracted over 3,400 Sydneysiders who enjoyed soaking up the water views while sampling the finest produce from the Orange region.This family-friendly event includes free face painting and an animal petting farm for the kids and as long as dogs are on a leash, they can come too! There will be a free shuttle bus running from the Lane Cove Library down to the event so you can leave the car at home.
