The City of Parramatta is welcoming back music and food lovers to the CBD with the return of its popular annual food, music and art festival, Parramatta Lanes.

Over four epic nights, local venues including Club Parramatta, Lola Cocina, Restaurant 317, Bar 30, Crown Hotel, Mikazuki, Milky Lane, and Butter will present an incredible line-up of musicians, DJs, and comedians, while dishing up the cuisines they are renowned for.

With music styles as diverse as the menu offerings, there is something to appeal to everyone. From hip-hop to neo-soul, eventgoers will enjoy performances by Dante Knows, No Intent, Lil Spacely, Esme, Liyah Knight, Rissa and Colin Ho, as well as Global Sounds DJs.

For those in need of a good belly laugh, some of Australia’s funniest comedians will also be taking to the stage, including Becky Lucas, Chopper, Tahir, Julia Wilson, Cassie Workman, Cam Knight, Luke Heggie.

From Thursday to Saturday evening, Heritage Courtyard Pavilion on Marsden Street will be transformed into Lil Lanes Bar – a pop-up bar by Archie Rose. The ticketed event will feature live music by artists including Phil Fresh, Kyoshi, Kymie, Imbi, and Foshe.

The first Parramatta edition of the Global Cities After Dark ‘Celebrate Local’ dinner will take place at Restaurant 317. Tickets include a three-course dinner with paired wines, as well as live music performances by artists such as Becca Hatch, Carolina Gasolina, Jamaica Moana and Nardean. The dinner, which is open to the general public, marks the end of a week-long industry conference focussed on Western Sydney’s night-time economy.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience a different side to the City with the Parramatta Lanes Art Trail. Featuring 15 works created by some of Western Sydney’s most talented artists, including many from Parramatta Artists’ Studios, the trail is led by an app that combines augmented reality with 2D visuals. 

Laners are also invited to enter to win one of 150 Good Mood Food snack boxes curated by local DJ and foodie Andrew Levins, whose “Parramatta Food” Instagram account showcases the best food the City has to offer. Filled with more than $100 worth of goodies from local businesses, including hot sauce from Butter, ramen crisps from Seng Seng Mart, sour beer from Northmead Cellars, za’atar from Yum Yum Bakery, dulce de leche from Messina, a selection of tea from Teacraft, and a signature cocktail from Nick and Nora’s, this prize is a great way to brighten the day of someone deserving.

Recently, Parramatta Lanes was awarded the Best Cultural, Arts or Music Event at the Australian Event Awards 2021 for its 2020 hybrid event, which combined home-delivered meals with online live-streamed entertainment.
