On Sunday, March 16, Randwick’s popular entertainment precinct The Spot will transform into a colourful feast of music, food and fun. The annual street-fair, organised by Randwick City Council, will present an activity-filled day of fun for the whole community, and judging by the success of previous years’ festivals, this event is not to be missed.

This year’s festival will boast two stages of exciting live entertainment. The Main Stage on St Pauls Street will be home to contemporary performances by a range of local talent, while the Harmony Day Stage on Perouse Road will feature more multicultural and global acts. There will also be a resident DJ playing, as well as a silent disco (where music can be listened and danced to through wireless headphones).

The festival will be an exciting event for the whole family, with plenty to keep the kids entertained all day. The ‘Kids Zone’ will include a petting zoo, jumping castle, cupcake decorating workshop, jewellery-making workshop and face painting.

If all the dancing and excitement works up an appetite, there’ll be a mouth-watering variety of international foods to choose from, and for those game enough, there’ll also be a hamburger eating competition hosted by The Spot’s Street Soul Burger Bar.

If you’re wanting to just kick back and soak in the atmosphere, the ‘Chill Out Zone’ filled with comfortable bean beds is the place for you. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy a glass of sangria from the licensed Festival Bar while you enjoy the show. There will also be roving entertainment and a plethora of vibrant market stalls to tickle everyone’s fancy. The stalls will be selling a variety of unique goods from handmade jewellery, gifts and home wares, to children’s toys, books and games.

The Spot Festival is located at the intersection of St Pauls Street and Perouse Road in Randwick and will run from 1pm to 8pm. The event is free for all to attend. Randwick City Council recommends using public transport to get to and from the festival. For more information, visit or call 9399 0810.
