The Glebe Street Fair has a long and illustrious history and is now acknowledged as Sydney's oldest and biggest free street festival. On November 16th, the Sydney suburb of Glebe comes alive as street stalls offer a rich bounty of diverse foods and avant-garde artists display an eye-melting palette of their works.By hiring a vehicle from East Coast Car Rentals, you can enjoy all the fun of the Glebe Street Fair and as it falls on a Sunday, why not make a weekend of it – a hire car is the most practical way to explore this wondrous city.
A unique Australian fair with an international flavour
Glebe Street Fair, now in its 31st incarnation, has grown year-on-year. Over 200 unique stalls will line Glebe Point Road, through Parramatta to Bridge Road, rendering these usually unobtrusive streets into something quite spectacular. The fair showcases fashion, art and produce, plus many other unexpected wares, offering goods that'll prove difficult to find anywhere else, so it's well worth heading on down to see what you can find. You won't be going hungry either – the smell of gourmet foods, a la carte meals, coffees from countries you've never heard of and a spicy international flavour will infiltrate all of your senses as you go about searching for that special item.
Mexican clothes, intricate tattoos and terrifying t-shirts – all in one place
With all those stalls, you may wonder where to start, so we at East Coast Car Rentals can guide you to a few of the more interesting ones. 'A Little Piece Of Mexico' offers authentic handmade Mexican clothing, textiles and various foodstuffs. 'Henna by Hura' is a stall for those who have always wanted a tattoo but feared the pain involved or the permanent nature of the artform – she'll paint an intricate design on you using natural paints – no needles involved! 'Que Terror' makes cotton t-shirts featuring drawing based on the scarier aspects of life, where normal situations are transformed into something far more sinister.
Let me entertain you
Live entertainment is in heavy supply at the Glebe Street Fair. There are countless performers, musicians, magicians and everything in between. A comprehensive line-up of live bands will be performing throughout the day, and you can find alternate entertainment from less-obvious channels. Belly-dancing, beatboxing and the Flamewater Circus all combine for a complete street fair experience you'd be hard-pressed to forget.
