UPtown Festival: Our Stories is a celebration of the Ultimo and Pyrmont community and their stories, music, dance, food, art and culture. The festival ran for 31 years until 2012, and this year the Pyrmont Ultimo Network of Services (PUNS) is excited to be bringing it back. It will be held on Saturday, October 28th, 2017 from 11am-5pm.

The festival will have two stages for performances from a variety of talented artists. This includes local choirs and bands, Aboriginal performances, a Flamenco performance, a DJ, and bands on the main stage, as well as performances for children on the kid’s stage. The festival will have over 35 stalls for food, shopping and more.

As part of the festival theme Our Stories, we’re inviting members of the Ultimo Pyrmont community to be a part of an exciting project. We are launching Humans of Ultimo Pyrmont, which will showcase the diverse faces and stories of our community. We want to hear from you! If you’re interested in sharing your story or would like to know more about the project please contact us at the email address below.

Stallholders: We are looking for stallholders of all kinds to be involved and make the festival fun and exciting for the community. It’s also a great opportunity for stallholders to sell their products and gain exposure. If you are a business owner, (food, clothing, etc,) we want you! Stalls will cost $50 for not-for profits, $100 for commercial stalls. 

Volunteer at the Festival: To ensure the festival operates seamlessly we are inviting volunteers to get involved and help with the operations of the day in a variety of ways.
