The City of Ryde and the Granny Smith Festival Committee are sad to confirm that the festival and carnival will not run for 2021 due to the continuing Covid-19 situation.
We will be acknowledging Granny Smith during the month of October with a few small activities.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the festival in 2022.

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.
