Events and Entertainment

Street event image

The Burwood town centre is the place to be as our community bounces back. We’re planning a range of activities that will cater for the whole family. Enjoy public art and light shows projected on the walls of key buildings, roaming entertainers, the sweet sound of music through our local busking program, and treat yourself with delicious food from our food trucks. There’s something for everyone even after dark!

Burwood After Dark


Each month beginning in November Clarendon Place, in partnership with Burwood Chinatown, will be closed to traffic on a Friday and/or Saturday night and transformed into a bustling food market. Tables and chairs will spread on the road. Roaming entertainment will wander between tables. Light shows and projections will play on the open wall spaces.

Burwood Summer Activations


On a normal night in Burwood thousands flock to explore the wide range of food on offer. Eats&Beats builds on this and Burwood’s ‘foodie’ reputation. Over 2 nights and one day Burwood Rd will be closed and transformed into an urban park filled with tables, chairs, decorations, amusement rides, market stalls, music and roaming performers.

Food Trucks Thursdays


Up to 25 food trucks are landing in Burwood, for our community to re-emerge, celebrate and engage.

We will be showcasing some of Sydney’s best food truck in front of the Burwood Library on Thursday 18 November and Thursday 17 February.

  • A COVID-safe and friendly environment will be created for everyone to relax and enjoy the tastes and smells of the diverse and delicious food offerings.
  • Food Truck Thursdays will include live music.
