Newtown Events

Newtown is one of Sydney’s most vibrant inner city precincts, known as artsy, edgy and a little bit Bohemian.

Classic pubs, hip small bars and eclectic boutiques line the main thoroughfares of King Street and Enmore Road, and there’s plenty of cool events to check out, from weekly markets to local gigs.

Each Saturday, the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre hosts a market, with secondhand clothes, bric a brac, handmade good and tasty treats. The annual Newtown Festival is the neighbourhood's biggest event; held on the second Sunday in November, it attracts more than 90,000 visitors each year.

Catch a weekend band at The Marlborough, see international acts at The Enmore or check out a gig at the Newtown Social Club (formerly the Sandringham Hotel). In terms of comedy and drama, the program at the Seymour Centre and the The King Street Theatre are not to be missed. Newtown is also the perfect spot to grab a bite, with a string of ethnic eateries and hip cafes to keep you refuelled through the busy Newtown events calendar.
