Granny Smith Festival Eastwood
- Sat Oct 19 2019
- Mums & Bubs
The annual Granny Smith Festival celebrates the life and legacy of one of our district’s most famous citizens, Maria Ann Smith - aka Granny Smith - who, back in 1868, ‘accidentally’ grew the first batch of little green apples that bear her name and are now grown all over the world.
The Granny Smith Festival began in 1985 and is now regarded as one of Sydney’s largest street festivals, a true community carnival, full of colour and good old fashioned fun. It attracts over 90,000 each year and is supported by local businesses, sporting and service organisations, schools and the wider community.
Kids! Don't miss PJ Masks perform on stage. Meet and greet Catboy, Owlette and Gecko on the Oval at 1pm.
There are also circus workshops, carnival rides including Ferris wheel, dodgem cars, a big slide and much more. And don't forget to say hello to Granny Smith and the Festival Mascot Sweetie Pie.
