Whether you’re excited about the big day or not, ‘tis an inevitable eventuality, so you may as well get amongst some of the exciting activities which are going on around the city. To start you off, here are some of the highlights from across Sydney this weekend…

Hey Sydney, why not start your weekend off with a bit of retro revival? If that sounds like a bit of you, then you’re in luck. Balgowlah RSL is celebrating their 60th Birthday with a 60’s & 70’s Dance Party on Friday 25th. You don’t have to be a member to get your groove on, but you do save a cool $5 if you are. Tribute band “I Love Disco” will be on hand to provide you with some smooth tunes, and there’ll be prizes up for grabs for best-dressed in the crowd. Grab your friends this Friday night, dress up in your favourite costume, put on your dancing shoes and enjoy a great night out.

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time for the Sydney Christmas festival to rear its tinsel-bedecked head once again. The month-long event program will kick off on Saturday evening (26 November 2016) with the Martin Place Christmas Concert and Christmas on the Green in Hyde Park. Kids, get excited, because Santa will arrive in a cycle driven sleigh to do the honours, lighting Sydney’s majestic Martin Place Christmas Tree.

‘Tis the season – Open Air Cinema Season, that is. Yes, it’s time to revel in sun, sand, and the festival vibe of Ben & Jerry Open Air Cinema – Inner West style. Running from Opening Night on Friday the 25th November through to 21st December on Cadigal Green at Sydney University, the event also boasts a licensed bar, delicious food and great musical entertainment. As can be expected, this event sells out fast, so get in quick for those tickets.


MTV Beats & Eats

Saturday 26 November | Stuart Park, Wollongong

If you’re looking for something a little more upbeat to start off your weekend, you might find what you’re looking for with MTV’s Beats & Eats. Who’s headlining? Oh, no one special. Just the Billboard chart-topping, Grammy-nominated, world-renowned EDM superstar, Steve Aoki. Joining him to rip up the stage is the platinum selling, EMA award winner, Savage, Gold Coast producer PACES and Kiwi sensation MAALA… so really, why would you want to be anywhere else?

If the promise of These. Sick. Beats. (Please do read that in the style of Taylor Swift’s, Shake It Off) wasn’t enough for you, though, remember the ‘Eats’ part of the title. DJ and chef, DJ Cutloose, will be simultaneously dishing up killer food in the Smith’s Chips Summer BBQ area throughout the day, and there’ll be a host of mouthwatering food stalls as well as awesome entertainment and activities.


Cambridge Christmas Markets

Sunday 27 November | Vaucluse Public School
