The sixth incarnation of the Pyrmont Festival is happening at Pirrama Park on Friday May 13 – Sunday May 22. Showcasing an abundance of wines from the Mudgee region and a delicious array of fine foods alongside photographic exhibitions and art displays, this ten-day program promises to be the perfect way to experience all that the Pyrmont Ultimo precinct has to offer, coupled with the country charm of Mudgee.
The Festival is all about celebrating Pyrmont as one of Sydney’s leading cultural and creative hubs, tourist destinations and dining precincts. It will feature over 100 stalls where guests can indulge themselves in the finer things life has to offer. The highlight of the festival will be a family-friendly two-day free event at Pirrama Park on Saturday May 14 – Sunday May 15 (11am-5pm), which includes exciting rides, children’s entertainment and live music performances.
“Pyrmont Festival is an outstanding example of a community-focused business and industry collaboration, and the City is proud to continue its support of this event and its growing popularity,” says Lord Mayor Clover Moore.
“The Mudgee region in Central NSW is one of the state’s oldest wine regions known for its fine food, excellent art, music, nature and history experiences. It’s a region perfectly matched with Pyrmont, an inner-city precinct that’s one of Sydney’s fastest-growing tourist, creative, cultural and dining destinations.”
The festival boasts a diverse program including the exploration of a range of cultural kitchens. On Sunday May 15, The Persian Room will be serving authentic Persian dishes paired with matching wines from Robert Stein Winery. With such a rich culinary history and spices sourced directly from Iran, this will be a unique dining experience. Waterfront Café Morso will be presenting a six- course degustation menu paired with premium wines from Petersons on Friday May 20. If you haven’t got the biggest appetite the Pyrmont Point Hotel will host tastings on Saturday May 21 pairing the likes of “prosciutto wrapped, ham hock terrine” with a selection of two Burnbrae wines. Bookings are highly recommended for these events.
