Where to Eat and Drink for Vivid
Since it debuted in 2008, Vivid has cemented its position on the country’s cultural calendar – awakening Sydney’s winter night-time economy in many vibrant ways.
Now in its 13th year, the festival’s geographic reach continues to expand, with light displays, performances and talks taking place at locations across the city – including Taronga Zoo, Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour and Carriageworks in Eveleigh. This year also marks the first instalment of Vivid Food, a brand new pillar involving chef residencies and collaborations.
Vivid lasts for 23 days and nights (May 26 to June 17), which allows for plenty of time to see as much as possible at your own pace. It’s best not to leave your plans for food and drinks up to chance, though; it’s usually impossible to find somewhere that isn’t packed. This guide should help get your planning started.
