Real Festival is back with its best program yet, set to once again transform the Nepean River with world-class entertainment, activities and experiences from 2-3 November.
Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler said this year's event brings together Australia's best creative minds and audiences can expect plenty of jaw-dropping stage performances, captivating artworks and more opportunities to get hands on, active, creative and inspired.
"Real Festival is a standout feature on our region's calendar of events, and we've lifted the bar even higher this year," Cr Fowler said.
"Headlining the program is internationally renowned outdoor theatre Group, Stalker who have wowed crowds globally and will light up the stage with their fusion of circus, aerials, dance and acrobatics over both nights at Real.
"We've also got surprises and fun planned at every corner of the riverbank; challenge yourself in the Adventure Zone, make something amazing in the Create Space and learn something new in Enviro World.
"Sydney's best food trucks will be there to dish up delicious cuisine from around the world, there's also a riverside bar and live music performances to add to the atmosphere and provide the perfect accompaniment to your outdoor dining experience, "Cr Fowler said.
"Famous faces joining us this year include Australia's favourite gardener Costa Georgiadis who returns with hints and tips to get your garden growing, while lovable children's book character Grug will encourage playful fun and an interest in reading.
"It's going to be a fantastic event, and best of all it's free to attend. I encourage everyone to save the date, connect with the event on Facebook for news and head to the website to start planning their time at Real Festival. You don't want to miss a moment," Cr Fowler said.
