Best things to do in Sydney this weekend (11th-13th March)

This heat isn’t going anywhere, which is perfect since A Moveable Feast will be making it’s long awaited debut on Bondi Beach this Saturday, adding to the rich stock of events happening around the city that also include four-day food and drink festival Taste of Sydney, a heap of events as part of Spectrum Now, and even a roller disco dedicated entirely to the memory of David Bowie.

Taste of Sydney (Thurs-Sun)

Taste of Sydney is back and it kicks off today, Thursday, lasting until Sunday at Centennial Park with a massive array of the city’s best restaurants, which have all set up stalls and will be dolling out some of their best creations. This is one of the best chances you’ll get to see newcombers like Kensington Street Social and Thievery in the same spot as festival favourites like MoVida and Biota Dining. There’s also a range of masterclasses, cooking demos, more masterclasses, retail showcases, pop-ups and more. It’s always a packed out foodie affair so heading along to this is a must. More information on the full line up can be found HERE.

Deckchair Arts (Sunday)

As part of Spectrum Now, Walsh Bay Arts and Commerce bring back Deckchair Arts on Sunday 13th March to meet demand after a successful outing last year. It’s a one-day-only event full of live music, performances, and a paddock-to-plate menu outside the picturesque Simmer on the Bay. Guests are encouraged to pull up a deckchair and really take in the stunning perspective of Sydney Harbour while enjoying live entertainment from the likes of 11-piece horn and drum street band Hot Potato, Indigenous dancer Kaleb Taylor, juggler and comedian Benny B, and more.

The Loch, a farm in the southern highlands, will be providing some very fine, local produce from the area for the menu featuring dumplings, fresh seafood, a gelato cart, and more. For more information and tickets click HERE.

David Bowie Roller Disco (Saturday)

Head along to the Roundhouse at UNSW on Saturday from 7pm because Roller Girl Promotions are dedicating this weekend’s roller disco to the late great David Bowie. Dress up is, of course, encouraged as you hire some skates and slink around the venue with hula hooping, karaoke, skating limbo competitions, and more planned for the night. It ends at 1am so you have plenty of time to twirl around to hits like “Let’s Dance” and “Fame” pumped out by DJ’s Harry Sounds and The Man(drew P Street) That Feel to Earth.

A Moveable Feast (Saturday)

A Moveable Feast is a new dining concept that will debut this weekend on Bondi Beach. A Beachside picnic if you will, exploring the local community via a Riviera themed experience with guests dressed in pastel beach chic, following the dress code, as they enjoy exceptional cuisine and entertainment, culminating with people dancing barefoot under the moonlight. Aussie artist Jake Meadows has been tapped to debut his new single as part of the entertainment plus there will be gourmet hampers designed by Chef Lauren Murdoch (ex-Rockpool; Ash St Cellar) with everything from pickled Alaskan crab salad and Prosciutto di Parma to Cardamom scented almond cream and Pastel meringue kisses. More information and tickets can be found HERE.
