Festival fever in Marrickville despite the crappy weather

Waking to the sound of pouring rain on Sunday did not bring a smile to my face. It was Marrickville Festival day – what a disaster. My only positive thought was that the festival wasn’t kicking off until 11am – maybe the weather might improve by then. No such luck. I headed up to Marrickville Road around lunchtime and had to jump over puddles and raging rivers in some laneways. But my belly was rewarded, there was food galore – sausage sizzles, chicken kebabs, paella, dutch pancakes, portugese tarts and nougat were just some of the things that caught my eye. The portugese tarts were awesome! Stalls lined Marrickville Road and flags were flying high despite the weather.

While the festival may have pulled crowds of 50,000 or more in previous years - I don’t think the numbers were that high on Sunday. I hope the weather will be better next year and  fingers crossed the sun shines brightly on the Newtown Festival which is on Sunday 14 November (9:30am – 5:30pm).

    Would you remember who the bakers of the Portugese tarts were please?

    I am so sorry. I don’t know who made them – I can’t even remember seeing a sign up at the stall. If you do find out – I would love to know – they were really good. You might be able to contact the Marrickville Festival organisers as they might have the details of each stall. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
