Burwood festival 2014 –
Sunday 21st September
A community festival held in a beautiful park works like kryptonite against the hustle and bustle of Inner Sydney. Celebrating its 30th birthday, Burwood Festival has gotten so good at chucking a party some might say it even has superpowers of its own…
Adopting a vibrant superhero theme, Burwood Festival 2014 is set to be the Inner West’s largest superhero party yet. So don’t forget to grab a cape and mask-up before heading down to Burwood Park for their annual fair on Sunday 21st September.
All your favourite superheroes will be there, including the Marvel Avengers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You can even get up close to the Batmobile and create your own alter-ego, costume and gadgets at Burwood Festival’s Superhero Workshop.
For those who prefer the thrill of star power over superpowers, the main stage will be a hive of activity headlined by teen heart-throbs, The Collective and Patrik Bosen.
With an array of dizzying rides, cute animals to meet and award-winning food stalls to sample, Burwood Festival is sure to delight every kind of Inner Westie. Testament to Burwood’s rainbow of diverse cultural communities, there will be treats to try from all over the world, and goodie bags to give to the kids.
For the 23rd year running, Burwood Festival will be host to the famous Classic Car Show displaying drool-worthy vintage cars from collectors across Australia.
