Re: Brew & Bite event, 2 July 4pm-9pm and 3 July 12pm-9pm

Brew & Bite festival activities will proceed; however, they will look a little different.
In line with NSW Government’s changes to COVID-19 restrictions, announced by Premier Gladys Berejiklian at 2pm 26 June, and which came into effect from 6pm that day, there will be a reduced number of food vendors and a substantial change to entertainment at the event.

Please note, per the announced changes, the following mask regulation applies:
Masks will be compulsory in all indoor non-residential settings, including workplaces, and at organised outdoor events: as an organised outdoor event, this includes Brew & Bite event which is the Winter Playground event area and also the Winter Playground as an event area throughout the festival period.
