Lismore’s Eat The Street Festival returns


For anybody who was at the fabulous Eat The Street Food Festival in Lismore last year – the good news is that it’s back next week on Saturday March 12, from 12.00-8.00pm.

Lismore’s CBD is vibrant and unique and offers a diverse range of food, retail and arts experiences. This one day Festival is a showcase of our outstanding local produce, writes the Lismore Business Panel.

Event Scope

The opportunity to attract new customers into Lismore and the CBD is our focus, and to invite our Lismore community to a fun, free, family event in the CBD. Participating existing retail businesses will promote a single special offer or a Festival ‘storewide discount’. Trade is also allowed on the footpath, by having a table directly outside your business. Participating existing Magellan and Carrington Street restaurants and cafés will trade from their premises as per normal and will also offer one $5 or one $10 ‘street food sample plate’ based on their product type. For example, an Indian cafe might choose a traditional ‘butter chicken dish’, outside of their regular menu. Similar for Mexican, Thai and so on.

The Streets

Magellan Street will be transformed into a ‘street themed strip’ with the road blocked to traffic. Market stall marquees will be arranged in Magellan and Carrington Streets and the Back Alley Gallery, alongside a beer garden and extra food stalls if required.

A music stage will run throughout the event, plus a cooking stage with a celebrity guest chef live cooking demonstrations. A children’s entertainment area is also included.
