Westside Vibe is Back With an Exotic Flavour

Following a two-year hiatus, Hornsby’s popular Westside Vibe makes a welcome return on Friday 6 May. Be transported to exotic destinations as the popular laneway festival takes you on a sensory journey filled with the taste, atmosphere and sounds of colourful destinations.

Vibrant lanterns, garlands and reeds will transform the area around Hornsby’s Dural Lane into a magical alleyway for one night.

Hornsby Shire Mayor Philip Ruddock is looking forward to the return of the festival, saying that it is an opportunity for the community to come together again following the events of the past year.

“Hornsby Shire residents have shown immense resilience over the past year. I am thrilled that Council can once again present its most loved street festival, Westside Vibe, giving people the chance to enjoy food and drink, music, market stalls and have lots of fun. I look forward to seeing everyone there,” Mayor Ruddock said.
