Real Festival returns with an weekend of free activities and experiences in the beautiful natural setting at the Nepean River.
Real Festival returns to the Nepean River from 3-4 November with an expanded program of free activities, entertainment and experiences to make it even bigger and better. Now held over the weekend, and including both Friday and Saturday nights, there are even more opportunities for you to create, explore, learn, and indulge and most of all have fun with your family and friends.
It all kicks off on Friday at 5pm. This is your time to wander around and soak up the atmosphere with live music, entertainment and roaming performers at every corner. Make sure you catch the breathtaking fusion of theatre, dance and circus that is Strange Fruit.
The large-scale illuminated and interactive artworks in the outdoor art gallery will stimulate your senses, provoke your thoughts and blow your mind. This year’s highlight piece Nebulous is a towering kinetic structure designed to encourage a moment of quiet reflection in a dynamic public space.
If the art installations get your creative juices flowing there’s also art, craft and painting activities for all ages to enjoy. The hands-on activities continue with interactive science shows and even a planetarium so you can explore the night sky. Learning has never been so much fun!
Pick up a gift or buy yourself something unique at the artisan markets. When you need to catch your breath, sit back and relax with a beverage in the pop-up bar or tantalise your tastebuds with something delicious from the food vendors.
On Saturday you’ll get all the best bits from Friday plus much more! From 2pm you can unlock your adventurous side with free on-water activities including kayaking and boat cruises, wildlife and bush tucker tours and hands-on activities where you can build, climb, cook, create and grow.
There’s also jaw-dropping on-water action to get your heart racing including a jet packing display and dragon boat races plus a spectacular water fire jet display to end the night with a bang!
This year free pre-registered workshops will be held on Sunday morning. This is when you can follow your passion, learn a new skill or discover your hidden talent in art, photography, music and fitness. These free workshops are held along the riverbank from 8am-12pm, pre-registration is required so get in early to secure your spot.
