Summer may be drawing to a close but the hot events across the city are showing no signs of cooling down. From food festivals to lavish opera, there are many events set to hit the city this month. Check out some of the best events going on in Sydney this March.
Head to Centennial Parklands for a flavour sensation at Taste of Sydney. This March, the annual food festival will return with 100 artisan producers showcasing the best food and drink Sydney has to offer. Peruse pop-up bars, join in an interactive cooking masterclass and see live demonstrations from the city’s top chefs. The festival will also host wine and cheese tastings as well as live music from their all-new live music hub.
Celebrate LGBTQ culture in the city as the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade returns to Sydney for its 39th year. The parade will bring the city to a standstill as thousands gather to watch or be part of this spectacular march in support of equality and LGBTQ pride. With over 12,000 colourful participants set to march down Oxford Street, this is one of the largest events of its kind in the world.
In partnership with top chef Luke Mangan, A Moveable Feast will return to Bondi in March. Foodie fans will descend upon the sands of Bondi Beach for a gourmet eight-course shared feast that promises to be part pop-up dinner, part synchronised picnic and party. The feast will run into the night and treat revellers to live music.
Soak up stunning visuals on Sydney Harbour as Bizet’s well-loved opera Carmen returns to the city. This vivacious production is well-regarded on the cultural calendar, not to mention its stunning backdrop of a glittering Sydney Harbour. Enjoy a glass of wine and get comfy in front of the beautiful pop-up opera house complete with bars, restaurants and tiered seating.
Head to the Imperial Hotel to celebrate the fabulous music of Madonna. Put on your dancing shoes or come dressed in your favourite Madonna-inspired outfit. Held on the eve of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade, this is the perfect opportunity to get down to the sounds of the Queen of Pop.
