2023 Food and Art Festival - how to participate

Together with the Inner West Council, the Balmain Rozelle Chamber of Commerce is hosting the Balmain Rozelle Food and Art Festival on 22- 30 April 2023. The popular Jazz in the Park will be held on Saturday 29 April, 2pm-5pm in Gladstone Park. Last held in 2021, this popular festival is a week-long celebration of local food, drink and creativity.

In 2021, 30 sold-out ticketed events were held across Balmain Rozelle, and marketing activity reached more than 60,000 residents. We know locals love to eat and drink and this festival gives you a unique opportunity to showcase your business. The festival will increase foot traffic to the area and by participating, you can capitalise on this increase.

We welcome all food, hospitality, art and craft businesses to participate. The only requirement for participation is that you're a fully paid member of the Chamber. Membership starts from $120 per year. As a participating business we'll promote your business/venue to our audience through Darling magazine, our website and social channels. To make the most of the festival we encourage you to host an event or provide an offer or giveaway.

Here are some ideas that may suit your business:
Picnic offer for Jazz In The Park
Wine dinner
Art exhibition
Kids craft workshop
Wine/Beer tasting
Happy hour/Lunch offer
Workshop or "How to" class
In-store tastings
Open gallery

Best brunches (calling all cafes and restaurants)
Sweet treats (this one is for our bakeries and patisseries)
Sunday roasts (calling all pubs)
Art and about (for our artists, makers, creatives and retailers)
Cocktail O'clock (calling all bars)

The Autumn edition of Darling, due early April, will focus on local food and art. All Chamber members will be included in the business directory, however, food, hospitality, art and craft businesses will be given editorial additional opportunities.
