Celebrate Sustainable Living at the 2009 Danks Street Festival

SYDNEY.- City of Sydney is celebrating sustainable food and living in Redfern and Waterloo this October with the fifth annual Danks Street Festival.

New in 2009 is the Live Green Kitchen featuring sustainable cooking demonstrations from leading local chefs including 2009 Festival Ambassador Jared Ingersoll (Waterloo’s own Danks Street Depot), Kylie Kwong (Billy Kwong), Alex Herbert (Bird Cow Fish), Dave Campbell (The Book Kitchen) and Ashley Hughes (Alio Restaurant). The kitchen will be hosted by Lyndey Milan.

The Festival will also feature the new “Handmade” market, selling handcrafts, sweet treats and more to support local artists and charities, children’s “Arty Pants” craft workshop area and festival bar.

"Now in its fifth year, the Danks Street Festival is a fantastic opportunity for Sydneysiders to get to know Redfern and Waterloo, one of our City’s most diverse and vibrant arts and food hubs," said Lord Mayor Clover Moore MP.

Festival visitors will be treated to a variety of live music, including The Donovans, Dimity Claire and the Bleeding Hearts, rockabilly band Danny & the Cosmic Tremors and EON Beats Project. Acclaimed Sydney DJs Marc Us and Suzie Q will bring Danks Street to life with their mix of disco, 80s boogie, dance and ambient groove.

Fresh food will once again be on show, with the return of the Hawkesbury Harvest fresh produce market and a variety of local and organic gourmet food vendors.

The popular PYD Designers Market on the corner of Young and Phillip Streets will be showcasing furniture, accessories and homewares from up and coming designers.

The 2009 Danks Street Festival is part of Art & About, Sydney’s biggest public arts festival. Free community buses will run from Redfern train station every 15 minutes.
