It's a multicultural food festival with a difference.
Where else in Sydney would you find Viking fights, live crocodiles and the chance to shoot air rifles, alongside Latvian folk and flamenco dancers, while you quench your thirst with a tasty food and a European beer?
Twenty nationalities are represented, with delicious food stalls to match.
There are also arts and crafts, games and rides suitable for kids up to 14 years, with a giant firework fiesta at 7:30pm on the Saturday night.
The festival is organised by local Austrian, Armenian, Czech, Danish, Swedish and Dutch Clubs, with the input of many other ethnicities. They started the celebration to increase the awareness of each other's cultures and it quickly grew into a day for families from all backgrounds.
There's a free shuttle bus from Bantry Bay Rd / Warringah Rd. shops to Eurofest. You can catch public transport from the city or the Northern Beaches to reach the shuttle. If driving, parking can be tricky close to Ararat Reserve, so the shuttle bus is a good option if you don't fancy a long walk.
