Apart from bringing back much of what the community loves, this year there's some exciting new elements to the day.
Food Alley & Licensed Area
What is Crows Nest best known for?
Food of course! We celebrate the widest range of restaurants and eateries in any suburb for miles. As well as all the popular local cafes, restaurants and bars getting into the festive spirit, Food Alley will be located on Burlington St with plenty of space to eat, relax and enjoy.
This year the Crows Nest Hotel is taking over the festival licensed area in the top section of Willoughby Road with their Mexican inspired ‘Crowie Cantina,’ specialising in tacos and cocktails and all-day entertainment.
For the Kids
For the first time we are also introducing the colourful and entertaining Circus Playground. Think juggling toys, stilts, unicycles, spinning and balancing things, fantastic fun for all ages! Add this to the ever-popular petting zoo, pony rides, street entertainers and musicians... all merging together for a full day of fun.
Come and join in, soak up the atmosphere of the Festival, and enjoy a bite to eat and drink with your family and mates.
The Crows Nest Fest spans from the five ways at Pacific Highway, down Willoughby Rd to Albany St plus encompasses each cross street - the shopping precinct of Crows Nest.
Crows Nest Mainstreet* is pleased to announce the theme of Connection, Culture and Creativity! The Crows Nest Fest attracts an estimated 30,000 attendees, focused on sharing in the community spirit with our popular Food Alley, Licensed Area, 150+ market stalls, music stages, kids zone and much more!
