Free Street Party in Mosman!

A special street party for Mosman residents featuring FREE live entertainment and food from nearby eateries will be held at Mosman Junction on Saturday 12 February from 6pm to 8.30pm.

The community event is supported by Four Frogs Crêperie, The Buena and Yachiyo, who will have free tastings for residents, accompanied by the Jacques Emery Jazz Band, followed by FM Duo performing a range of pop and R&B songs.

To keep the kids happy, a number of activities including face painting and cupcake decorating with The Classic Cupcake will also be on.

The party follows a successful inaugural event in 2018 to open the alfresco dining area and is funded by the NSW Government’s ‘The Festival of Place’ in association with Mosman Council.

The event will be managed in line with NSW government public health orders and attendees are encouraged to be vaccinated and wear masks.

There’s so much on in Mosman during February. Love local!
