On Saturday 24 September, our lovely neighbourhood will culminate in one fabulous celebration for the Surry Hills Festival. The day is set to be jam-packed with everything from delicious food by local eateries, a themed picnic, fresh produce, loads of entertainment, art and design installations, and many, many more events! Here are some of our picks of the day.

9am:
Dog Show @ Ward Park

If you're an early-ish riser, you're in for an AWESOME treat! Grab a coffee from our pals at Artificer and head to Ward Park for a parade of cuteness that will be the Dog Show in Ward Park. We'll definitely be staking out a front-row seat for this event.

From 11am-4pm:
Beer Tasting & Art 
@ Yulli's

Feel like a tasty dose of Vitamin B (Beer!) and Vitamin A (Art!) for lunch? Well, we're pretty sold on the sounds of Yulli's specially made Gretchen Organic Kolsch, which is made with organic honey from the picturesque Blue Mountains. Also on show is a pop-up gallery featuring up-and-coming ceramicist, Grettel Corrie. And who could go past some of Yulli's tasty treats (our current fave dish is the Black Pepper Noodles)! Big wins all round.
Yulli's Restaurant and Bar | 417 Crown Street

Yum! Who wouldn't love a gob-full of cheese? On offer are samples of the finest selection of Australian, French, Italian, Swiss, Dutch and British Farmhouse cheeses.
