Living Smart Festival

Next date: Friday, 17 September 2021 | 12:00 AM to Sunday, 19 September 2021 | 11:59 PM


The Living Smart Festival is set to make a rousing return in 2021 after a year’s hiatus due to COVID-19, with a weekend of celebrations on the shores of Lake Macquarie.

Spread across the weekend of September 17-19, this year's festival will feature three distinct events:

  • A Friday night Feast for the Senses dinner under the stars, utilising Speers Point Park's soon-to-be-opened Multi Arts Pavilion and featuring a seasonal, sustainably sourced menu
  • A free Saturday line-up of workshops, demonstrations, market stalls and presentations by some of Australia's most prominent and innovative personalities in the field of sustainability, including gardening guru Costa Georgiadis
  • Sunday's Live at the Point, a ticketed day of music, food, drink and celebration across multiple stages, with a line-up of artists hand-picked for sharing Living Smart Festival's underlying themes of sustainability and conservation

The festival attracted more than 30,000 people in 2019, making it one of Australia’s largest sustainability-themed annual events. COVID-safe measures will be in place in 2021, but due to the size of Speers Point Park and the nature of the event, we do not anticipate having to limit numbers for Saturday's free activities.

Thank you to our event sponsors
