Stanley Street is set to be transformed into a vibrant hub of activity as the new Secrets on Stanley activation boasting 95 parties, performances, and events across 14 venues launched on Friday 17 February.

Supported by the City of Sydney and Pride Amplified, this four-week activation promises to be a blend of food, music, art, and community. Secrets on Stanley is a community-led effort aimed at bringing life back to the heart of Darlinghurst and showcasing the many talented artists and musicians whilst celebrating Sydney WorldPride 2023.

Highlights from the event include a one day only margarita festival, Friday aperitivo hour celebrating Sydney’s answer to ‘Little Italy’, Darlo dogs in the pub competition at The Lord Roberts, drag bingo with Luna Sparks, a cooking masterclass with celebrity chef Scott Findlay at Flave, a rainbow pizza special at newcomer Harry’s, life drawing at Funkatello and a range of offers and entertainment every day of the week for 4 weeks only.

The event series takes place between 17 February – 18 March, with an unforgettable street party as the finale! Of course, in keeping with the theme, each venue will provide a ‘Secret’ for you to discover only when you arrive at each venue. Ssshhh!

A range of food vendors will be on hand, serving up a variety of delicious dishes and drinks, while local musicians and artists will provide a soundtrack of live music and art performances.

In addition to the entertainment, Secrets on Stanley will also feature a range of interactive workshops and demonstrations. This is a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together, connect with their neighbours and celebrate the diverse cultures and talents that make Sydney such a special place.

A range of free and ticketed events are on offer and bookings are strongly recommended.
