Festive Fare


Step through the gates of the Hyde Park Barracks for an evening of festive shopping and entertainment. A star-studded line-up of 40+ stalls features Sydney’s finest artisan producers, makers and merchants, and vendors of ready-to-eat gourmet food.

Established in 2013, the Christmas Fare has become a much-loved fixture of Sydney’s cultural calendar. In the sensational grounds of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site in the centre of Sydney, you’re invited to delight in the merry atmosphere with scrumptious food, a pop-up boutique bar and home-grown live entertainment.

This year we’ve teamed up with our friends at the Australian Design Centre to present ‘Makers Lane’, featuring a carefully curated selection of food-related gifts by artisans and craftspeople that will provide everything you need to style your perfect Christmas table.

Need more reasons to visit? SLM’s own Colonial Gastronomer, Jacqui Newling, will be on hand with delectable samples of Christmas classics derived from our recipe collections.
