I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.
Saturday November 14th, the first Streetlife Festival will be held in Geelong. Michael Ward and Kieran Blood, who bought Geelong's Great Australian Beer Festival to life are behind the StreetLife Festival.

Inspired by St Jerome's Laneway Festival in Melbourne, Michael Ward wanted to bring the idea to Geelong and inject some life into the laneways.

The Delta Riggs, Jinja Safari, Imogen Brough and Triple J DJ Sarah Howell will perform down three alleyways off Little Malop St and James St. There are other performers appearing as well.

Council guidelines means that only 1500 tickets are available. The StreetLife Festival is pitched at 20 to 35 year olds, and it is an over 18's event.

The musicians will be spread out along Downes Lane, Downes Place and John Street. The Italian restaurant Caruggi will be serving diners alfresco in the back area of the restaurant. There will be food trucks and a barbecue.

The StreetLife Festival event is part of the State Government initiative to inject 1.5 million dollars into the Geelong Council's Laneways and Linkages Project.

StreetLIfe Festival is hosting two Street Art Competitions.

First is the Lee Lin Chin Affair. Artists can enter a painting or sketch that depicts how they see the quirky newsreader Lee Lin Chin,

Second is StreetLife (what it means to me). Artists can submit a piece that depicts what street life means to them.

There is free entry to the art competitions and there is prize money of $150.00 for the winner of each category.

Your Comment
Hi Gayle you're right. Geelong has such lovely little lanes in Geelong and it's nice to see this festival aimed at youth, encouraging good things in the city. It should be a great festival.

It's nice to see something so productive and creative directed at young people and having a positive economic impact on our regional cities.
