I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.
Event: -

Parramatta Lanes is a huge event in Parramatta that takes over a dozen city locations for four nights of food, music and art. This year the event will run from Tuesday October 15 to Friday October 18 and its venues include everything from car parks, to cathedrals, to laneways, to the riverbank. Every location will be different (and often themed). Some will even host special events.

Here's a brief run-down on what you can expect at each:

Dirrabarri Lane
Evenings in this laneway will have a Retro Future theme, with food, drinks and entertainment combining to evoke the future we thought we'd get back in the 80s.

Horwood Place
Over here, the Bearded Bakers aim to evoke the feeling of The Old City in Jerusalem.

The Rooftop Eat Street Carpark
Here you'll find an Old Skool Party, featuring reinvented classics such as a rave bingo, a Pacman maze and, on Wednesday, a 90s party.

Roxy Carpark
Enjoy all of Asia in one laneway with authentic Asian street food, DJs playing a variety of K-Pop and Hip Hop hits, and a series of public art installations.

Willow Grove
Get your French fix here and enjoy the Western Sydney Poetry Slam Finals on Tuesday.

St John's Cathedral
This area is nick-named Creative Corner and workshops will offer you the chance to design desserts and make beerings.

Red Cow Lane
An immersive art installation in this lane will highlight the effect man-made waste has had on the ocean.

Centenary Square
In the square you can enjoy some of the best BBQ in Parramatta against a backdrop of rock and soul tunes.

University of New England
UNE will offer a SPACE experience that includes unique, space-themed music performances.

Erby Place
Here, the FBi Emporium stage will host local and Greater Sydney talent curated by FBi Radio.

The Riverbank
Experience Little India by the river with an event full of Bollywood beats, as well as rich colours, smells and flavours.

Batman Walk
The walk's Scholar Garden will host a sensory experience created by Parramatta Artists' Studio artist Lousie Zhang.

All of these locations are within Parramatta CBD (and loosely found between Parramatta Station and Parramatta River). For more information on how to reach them, head to the Parramatta Lanes website. You'll find a list of the musicians and DJs performing at the festival there too.
