CANCELLED – The Lane Cove Rotary Fair and Sustainability Lane 9 October 2022 – Cancelled



Everybody loves a fair and Lane Cove residents love the Lane Cove Rotary Fair.

After two years absence the Lane Cove Rotary Fair and Sustainability Lane are back, bigger and better than ever.

Thousands of people attend the event and you are sure to bump into many people you know.  Join in the fun of the Rotary Lane Cove Village Fair on  Sunday 9 October 2022 between 9 am and 4pm.   The Fair takes place in the heart of the village with Longueville Road closed to cars.  It is a brilliant day and a great way to say bye bye to the school holidays.

Sustainability Lane

Visit Sustainability Lane on The Canopy.

Sustainability Lane is an annual event organised by Lane Cove Council. The event showcases sustainable living through a variety of stalls, demonstrations and live entertainment. Forming part of the wider Lane Cove Rotary Fair, Sustainability Lane showcases local community groups and businesses who are contributing to a more sustainable Lane Cove.

There will be plenty to entertain the kids with live reptile shows and interactive stalls, and the whole community can stock up on sustainable products and engage in solutions to matters important to them. Experts will be on hand to answer your questions on energy, energy efficiency, living plastic-free, composting, fermenting and permaculture.

The Council Tent will be a hub for advice and giveaways on reducing waste, saving energy, bushcare and backyard habitat.

Council encourages all visitors to bring their own reusable coffee cup and shopping bags on the day, as well as your reusable bottle to fill up for free at the water stations provided by Sydney Water.
