Fairfield City’s biggest foodie festival Culinary Carnival is coming to Fairfield City Centre on Saturday 28 May this year, and everyone is invited.

Prepare your senses for the ultimate street party hosting food, music and dancing from all around the world – and celebrated TV presenter, chef and author Fast Ed; and Italian- Australian actress, opera singer, author, and TV personality Silvia Colloca will be joining in on the fun!

Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said festivalgoers’ tastebuds are in for a treat.

“We’re excited to announce that Culinary Carnival is back bigger and better this year – spread over two weeks at two locations, and bringing all the best local eats and beats you would expect with it, plus more.

“This year’s event is gearing up to be a festival like no other; serving up a multitude of cultures on a plate, while showcasing some of our award-winning food vendors and restaurateurs,” Mayor Carbone said.

“Fairfield City prides itself on hosting inclusive and affordable family events that support local business, and Culinary Carnival is no exception.

“What makes our City such a unique and special place is the wonderful diversity of its residents and their passion for sharing and celebrating their culture with the greater Sydney community.

“I invite you to come along and experience what all the hype is about.”

Council’s FREE food fest will showcase authentic local eats, roaming mid-week entertainment, local cultural performances, junior cooking workshops and amusement rides – culminating in a 6pm fireworks finale at Fairfield City Centre on Saturday 28 May 2022.

“So mark your calendars for 28 May 2022 – I encourage you to bring your friends and family, and most importantly your appetite, to Culinary Carnival in Fairfield City Centre.”

Kiersten Fishburn, Deputy Secretary, Cities and Active Transport at Transport for NSW, said the NSW Government was supporting the state’s economic recovery by funding councils in the 13 LGAs that were most impacted by last year’s COVID-19 lockdowns to reimagine their streets and laneways.

“Our public spaces, including our streets have become a focal point during the pandemic and we’re enabling councils to revitalise their laneways, streets and squares to help local economies and the hospitality, arts, and music sectors to get back on their feet,” Kiersten Fishburn said.

“It’s all part of our Open Streets program, which is about re-energising and reimagining our streets, and creating a sense of excitement and discovery with community activities that the public can get out and enjoy.”
