Eat, drink and enjoy some fine tunes when Penrith Producers returns to Triangle Park on Friday 26 March.
Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown OAM said she was looking forward to the chance to celebrate our local food industry at the free, outdoor, COVID-Safe event.
“Council is committed to creating vibrant and inclusive events for our community to enjoy,” she said. “Penrith Producers is a great way to celebrate our fantastic producers, build networks and support local businesses, all while encouraging our community to enjoy Penrith after dark.”
Cr McKeown said Triangle Park was the perfect venue for the event.
“It’s right in the heart of our City and looks quite magical with strings of lights and special furniture elements added in,” she said.
At Penrith Producers our community, workers and visitors will have the chance to enjoy a glass of wine or try local craft beer from Rusty Penny and Casey’s breweries. They can also savour Texas-style BBQ delights from the Smokin Hot and Saucy crew or treat themselves to the wares of Underground Coffee Roasters, Pasticceria Dolce Mia, MJAYS Café, Cana Farm and G-Free Donuts.
The event is curated by Penrith City Council and funded through The Festival of Place, a NSW Government initiative to support food and beverage operators and producers while encouraging a safe return to public spaces through city activation.
Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres MP said the initiative would offer timely support to city centre businesses.
“Businesses across Penrith have done it tough this past year,” Mr Ayres said. “With funding from the NSW Government’s Festival of Place grants, events like Penrith Producers will help businesses get back on track.”
“I encourage people to stay local on 26 March and pop down to the Triangle Park to enjoy some great food and fabulous entertainment.”
Cr McKeown said the entertainment will be provided by The Mt. Trio band featuring Ricky Nifo, who performed as part of Council’s popular Thursday Night Live – Lockdown Series.
“We’re lucky to live in a city that is home to so many talented musicians and unique food and drink offerings,” Cr McKeown said. “To be able to enjoy them all together as part of Penrith Producers is quite literally the icing on the cake”
The event will be held in Triangle Park on Friday 26 March from 6pm-10pm. Find out more at http://www.penrithproud.com.au/penrith-producers
