Real Festival

Friday 01 November 2019 to Saturday 02 November 2019


Real Festival takes over the Nepean River in the first weekend of November, bringing Australia’s best theatre performers, artists and creative minds together in one stunning outdoor location.

Expect lots of jaw-dropping moments as unmissable stage shows and spectacular artworks transform the riverbank, and on-water activities take excitement to the next level.

Step into an imaginative outdoor adventure with fresh ideas, and plenty of activities and experiences to get your hands on; be crafty, unleash your creative side and be inspired.

Grab a bite to eat at one of Sydney’s best food trucks, pick up something unique at the artisan markets and catch up with friends in the riverside bar under the stars.

Get amongst the fun at this year’s Real Festival. You won’t believe it’s all for free!

When you need to catch your breath, sit back and relax with a beverage in the pop-up bar or tantalise your taste buds with something delicious from the food trucks.

Real Festival also offers a series of workshops along the riverbank. If you want to learn something new, develop your skills or follow your passion then check out what workshops are on offer on the website.
