The 2023 Granny Smith Festival drew in approximately 80,000 attendees turning out for a sunshine filled celebration at the heart of Eastwood.

Held on Saturday 21 October, the festival featured amusement rides, market stalls, food trucks, fireworks, performances, youth zone and kids activities. The Batlow Cider Bar on Eastwood Oval was a big hit, offering free cider tastings, apple seltzers and more.

Thank you to the local businesses, sporting and service organisations, schools, and the wider community for your continuous support.

We look forward to bringing you another amazing festival in 2024!

About the 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.
