An inspiring and engaging festival of art and ideas
A unique and spectacular festival of art and ideas, the Woollahra Festival is back in 2012 for its third year.

From theatre, the arts, literature and architecture to delicious food and wine, this young event is quickly growing into an exciting and entertaining experience for Sydneysiders.

The event website explains what the Woollahra Festival is all about. It is:
A cutting edge ideas program with some of Sydney's leading minds.
A head-turning line-up of musicians, performance artists and comedians.
Strongly rooted in the concept of community.
Held in an intimate and attractive festival precinct in Queen St, Woollahra.

Put all of this together and you get an engaging and fun weekend for local residents and visitors from further afield. In the language of the Gadigal people, the land's traditional owners, Woollahra means "meeting place". The aim of the festival is to do this name justice and create an annual meet up of the minds.

Drawing on the talent among the residents of Woollahra and the greater Wentworth area, the festival will present a stimulating talks program coupled with a vibrant line-up of the best music, comedy and entertainment from across Sydney. Organisers say they aim to celebrate community and the creative life, promote enjoyment of the arts, and bring joy to passers by. Not to mention have a whole lot of fun along the way.

The 2012 Woollahra Festival program is extensive and offers plenty of variety, with everything from engaging and topical debates with Sydney's leading thinkers to burlesque stilt walkers, impromptu marching bands and much more. And best of all, many of the events are free.

All street vendors at the festival are from local businesses, which means all proceeds go straight back into the local community. The Woollahra Festival is an event produced by the community, for the community and people from all over Sydney.

So for a full line-up of talks and events at the 2012 Woollahra Festival, visit the event website.
