Prepare your palates for an extraordinary journey of flavours, as Pyrmont Festival makes its grand return to Sydney this May 2024. Celebrating its 12th year, the festival promises an even grander array of delectable food, exquisite wines, craft beers and gin tastings, coupled with vibrant live entertainment. Over two family-friendly days, on 18-19 May, experience the pinnacle of NSW’s rich culinary heritage set against the picturesque backdrop of Sydney Harbour at Pirrama Park.

Alex Gibbs, the Pyrmont Festival Director, highlighted, “This year, we have welcomed an impressive lineup of winemakers, brewers, and distillers from across NSW, featuring producers from regions such as Orange, Mudgee, Murrumbateman, and the Hunter Valley. Local businesses will shine throughout the festival, including an Aburi and Oyster Bar in Pirrama Park. We’ve created an event that’s welcoming for families and perfect for a first date. Everyone is welcome.”

Anticipate a sensory explosion with over 20 wineries, breweries, and distilleries showcasing their finest alongside gourmet food trucks and stands offering a smorgasbord of cuisines. Elbourne Wines, Tulloch Wines, and Hungerford Hill are just a few of the renowned names attendees can look forward to, along with the first-ever Canberra District winery to participate, McKellar Ridge Wines.

For those with a penchant for spirits, the festival does not disappoint, featuring distilleries like Finders Distillery and Scylla Distilling Co., plus craft beers by White Bay Beer Co. Culinary delights will range from dynamic Asian street food at The Star’s Fat Noodle stand, created by chef Luke Nguyen, to a variety of cuisines provided by food trucks such as Knuckles 2 You and Pharaoh BBQ.

Adding to the festivities, Pyrmont Festival will host local artist exhibitions, art classes, face painting, large outdoor games, and a jumping castle, ensuring a delightful experience for attendees of all ages.
