Picnic Surry Hills

Picnic Surry Hills

Sunday 23 February, The Surry Hills Creative Precinct is set to host PICNIC Surry Hills, a new event, celebrating a fresh new look for Surry Hills and the end of construction works along Devonshire Street.

The community picnic, taking place at Ward Park, is free to attend, and in true Surry Hills style, four-legged friends are welcome too.

An official festival event of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, Picnic Surry Hills promises to be a colourful affair with an array of extraordinary entertainment. Meet the fabulous and glamorous Devonshire Divas and Axl Rod, the local Merman, along with an entourage of local characters, personalities and a few surprises. And for the kids, magical unicorn rides await.

On the music front, stepping up to the decks to provide the ultimate lazy Sunday afternoon soundtrack is Arq resident, DJ Adam Love, and Groovescooter’s DJ’s Paris Pomper and Georgie.

As part of the Daisy Chain Public Art Project, everyone is invited to create an enormous installation of blooming flowers. The Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre will be encouraging locals to meet the neighbours and make new friends with a series of free flower workshops.

Guests will be able to enjoy food freshly prepared by the array of local cafes, pubs and gourmet eateries offering special Picnic delights. PICNIC partners will be providing everything from fresh summer snacks to delicious desserts and hearty lunches, with a selection of handpicked food stalls offering delicious morsels on the green.

A limited-edition picnic blanket will be available for purchase from selected picnic partners and in Ward Park on the day to support charity partner ACON, with $5 of every Picnic blanket sale going to their community health programs.

By night, PICNIC in the pub will offer more live music and entertainment, drink specials and relaxed vibes at some of Surry Hills favourite haunts including Tilly May’s upstairs at the Trinity Hotel, the Shakespeare Hotel, the Dove & Olive and many others.

To check out the full program of entertainment and get involved, download the guide available from picnic.org.au and use the wayfinding signage to find participating venues and after-hours in the pubs, clubs and bars in the area.
