Feast at Summer Hill

South African Artist William Kentridge has an exhibition titled Right Into Her Arms on now at Annandale Galleries.

Savour the village vibe of this Inner West neighbourhood as it showcases its growing small bar scene, creative retail and favourite food venues on Sunday, 29 September.

Summer Hill is set to become a heaving street fair featuring the best the suburb has to offer.

The Neighbourhood Feast is a fully licensed festival featuring four bars as well as an array of alfresco dining of fine food fromDa Vinci’s, Two Fat Butchers, Thai Garn Restaurant, Plunge,Envy Deli Café and Hungry Eye Nepalese and beverages by The Rio, Nine Fingers Brew and Summer Hill Hotel.

Entertainment on the main stage has been programmed by Tess Robens from The Rio; the former milkbar was a well- loved institution of Summer Hill that still retains its original charm and 1950s signage.

A roaming brass band will feature while Mic Conway from the legendary Captain Matchbox Whoopie Band will play an assortment of oddball instruments as well as perform magic, juggling, tap dancing and fire eating; his vaudeville act will be an exciting end to the day.

A new caravan serving drinks and a kids’ playground by Monkey Puzzle will feature at The Rio’sbar area.

The infamous pizza eating competition also makes its return to Andiamo for feast go-ers to try their luck to out-eat and out-last their competitors.
