Plans are underway to make Bankstown Bites food festival an even bigger and better food festival in 2012, starting with a new location for this the eighth year.
Mayor of Bankstown, Councillor Khal Asfour, today announced Bankstown Bites will be held on Saturday 14 July at a new location - Griffith Park and the Bankstown Arts Centre.
“We wanted a location which is central to the CBD, close to public transport, is pedestrian friendly and is big enough to accommodate up to 10,000 people,” Mayor Asfour said.
“We will need to close Olympic Parade for the festival period so I urge people to use public transport.”
Olympic Parade will be closed, between Dale Parade and Marion Street, from 6am-6pm.
Temporary no parking zones will also be enforced in Chapel Road South between Brandon Avenue and Greenfield Parade, and Greenfield Parade west bound between Restwell Street and Chapel Road South.
Mayor Asfour said this year’s Bankstown Bites promises to dish up a day of unforgettable eating, artistic and entertainment experiences, with food stalls, cooking demonstrations and live music.
“We will have some very exciting announcements to make in regards to who our celebrity cooks will be,” Mayor Asfour said.
