November Festivals and Things to Do!

The end is in sight! The end is in sight! It’s November and it’s all downhill from here for 2019! Here are my top things to see and do for the month of November in Ol’ Sydney Town!

Sculpture by the Sea- Thurs 24 Oct – Sun 10 Nov

Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk, Sydney

Returning for its 23rd year, the annual Sculpture by the Sea is back! Check-out over 100 sculptures, lined up over a 2km stretch of the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk! And for those who have a disability, you can book in for a FREE tactile tour! Pretty cool and inclusive hey?

Food and Wine by the River- Sun 3 Nov

Tambourine Bay Reserve, Riverview  

For one day only, Lane Cove’s Tambourine Bay Reserve will have its riverside lined with 12 wine/beer/liqueur stalls and 11 food stalls! On a nice November afternoon, all you really want is a plastic glass of wine in one hand, and a one-handed no-fuss food in the other! PERFECT! Savour the gourmet foods and the cool climate wines from Orange NSW! 11am – 5pm, bring the family! Leave the car at home! A Free shuttle bus will ferry goers from the Lane Cove Library down to the reserve! Sweet!

Celebrate Melbourne Cup Day with Merivale group- Tues 5 Nov

Various Merivale locations

If you haven’t already planned where you’re going to be on Melbourne Cup Day with only 10 days to go? Don’t stress! As each Merivale group venue will have a Melbourne cup package just right for you! It’s just a matter of choosing your style, your location, your budget, and making that call……. I’m not going to work on 5 November! Packages range from a drinks package and canapes, to 10-course sit-down lunches at a hatted restaurant – the recurring feature in all venues and packages being, that Melbourne cup day festivities will be beamed live on to the big screens! All packages give you access to the venue from 11.30am till late.

Now it’s only a task of picking your poison! Click HERE for the full list of venues and packages!

You know how everyone wants to get their events in early, beat the Christmas rush when it feels like you have a Christmas event on every weekend in December! But this is a bit extreme……Join the Sydney Filipino community, and get a taste of how Christmas is celebrated in the Philippines in the second week of November?…November?? Celebrate with all day entertainment, i.e. traditional song and dance, food stalls featuring festive Filipino dishes, Christmas lanterns, carols and more! FREE entry! Hey babe! Have you seen my golden mic!?

Beginners Kintsugi Workshop- Anytime

Suite 402, 235 Clarence Street, Sydney

Oh damn! You drop that plate? It broke? Damn boy! But don’t fret! If you’re skilled in the ways of Kintsugi, you can mend that broken pottery with lacquer, gold, platinum or silver! The philosophy of the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi is that an object is sometimes broken, but instead of throwing it out, understand that it’s a part of its life and anything broke can be repaired – and the cracks remain to show it’s history and becomes a piece of art! Workshops are 2 hours in length, $120 pp, and you’ll take away with you – knowledge about Kintsugi, a textbook, a repaired Kintsugi plate with mini easel to display it and substitute gold powder! Thank you Sensei. *Deep bow*.
