Culinary Carnival – the celebration of our City’s international flavours and cuisines – is back to tantalise your tastebuds on Saturday, 29 May.
This year’s event will be different than previous years to ensure the health and wellbeing of all visitors. Instead of one centralised location, the festival will be spread throughout the Fairfield City Centre, encouraging visitors to explore the array of cuisines on offer and support local businesses.
The main hub of activity will be a food tasting extravaganza, with FREE sample dishes provided by participating restaurants and food vendors in the city centre from 11am-2pm or until stocks last. From there, visitors are encouraged to explore nearby streets and visit the businesses to satisfy their appetites, enjoy the roaming street performances, check out the kids cooking workshops and enjoy free family activities in Epoch and Thomas Ware Plazas.
Kids will be taught to make tabouli, tortilla, and dessert fruit donuts at the FREE kids cooking workshops. Kids will pick fresh ingredients from the garden and be shown how to prepare the ingredients for a tasty meal or snack. Registration to the workshops is required – visit Fairfield City Council web page for updates on registrations closer to the date.
Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said Fairfield City Centre is famous for its rich variety of flavours from around the world.
“Everywhere you turn in Fairfield City Centre, you can find an exciting meal or delicious snack to enjoy,” Mayor Carbone said.
“More than 107,000 people currently living in Fairfield City were born overseas, with residents hailing from more than 104 different nations. We are privileged that so many brought with them the authentic tastes and flavours to share with our City.
“As one of the most multicultural cities in Australia, I look forward to celebrating our rich heritage with each other and all of Sydney.
“I encourage everyone to come down and discover a whole world of flavours available from restaurants and businesses in Fairfield City Centre on Saturday, 29 May.”
