Now in its 31st year the festival is recognised as one of Sydney’s largest and most colourful street fairs.
The warm Spring weather of October attracts crowds upwards of 90,000 every year. The festival is a celebration of good old-fashioned fun, food and entertainment which runs throughout the day and into the night.
The Festival’s enduring popularity is much like that of its namesake – the Granny Smith apple – the perfect pie apple that sprouted accidentally on Granny Smith’s Eastwood farm way back in 1868 and is now grown all over the world.
The true strength of the Granny Smith Festival is its community character which sees over 280 stall holders attend, 500 performing artists and 2,000 local participants who proudly take part in ‘their’ street parade.
A key element of the Granny Smith Festival success story is the involvement of sponsors who allow this unique community event to continue to offer memorable experiences for locals and visitors.
