Maitland’s Street Eats a real treat

Now is the time to get your family, friends and picnic rugs ready as Maitland’s Street Eats returns to a suburb near you.

That means residents can tempt their taste buds at some of their favourite vendors, as well as a variety of new food trucks.

Each Street Eats will include a program of “live” music with free entry and ticketing currently not required.

The first get-together kicks off this coming Sunday (10 January) from noon to 3pm at Queens Wharf, Morpeth, where Aqua Hire will also be available on the day.

More Street Eats are scheduled to follow at Anzac Park in East Maitland on 15 January where, at the same time, Maitland Gaol is hosting a one-off experience to explore the secrets of the Gaol at night; Woodberry Playground on 5 February; and Norm Chapman Oval in Rutherford on 26 February.

The event’s normal programming will then continue across the city right up until June.

“We’re hoping this will be a great way to get the community together in suburbs across the city in a COVID-19 safe way,” Maitland City Council’s senior place activation officer Portia Wendt said.

“For the Make it Maitland this summer program, we’ve included more Street Eats than usual and in more locations.”

A comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan will be in place for all council-run events and activities.

But, council will continue to monitor and adhere to the advice from the federal and state governments, including any variation or modification of the public health orders.

Street Eats is a Maitland City Council Place Activation initiative.

Additional dates and locations will be announced soon.
