The Granny Smith Festival is over for yet another year and the City of Ryde wish to thank all that attended and supported the 2017 event. We are looking forward to the 2018 Granny Smith Festival and cannot wait to share the fun and excitement next year!

Stay posted for the 2018 details and in the meantime please take a look at our 2017 photo library below.

2017 Granny Smith Festival

The annual Granny Smith Festival celebrates the life and legacy of one of our district’s most famous citizens, Maria Ann Smith - aka Granny Smith - who, back in 1868, ‘accidentally’ grew the first batch of little green apples that bear her name and are now grown all over the world.

 The Granny Smith Festival began in 1985 and is now regarded as one of Sydney’s largest street festivals, a true community carnival, full of colour and good old fashioned fun. It attracts over 90,000 each year and is supported by local businesses, sporting and service organisations, schools and the wider community.

A key element of the Granny Smith Festival success story is the involvement of sponsors who allow this unique community event to continue to offer memorable experiences for local and visitors.
