Street Party

The Rocks has joined forces with award-winning pastry chef Anna Polyviou to create a street party complete with cookie workshops, delicious street food, outdoor bars and live entertainment.
07 Jan 2022
28 Jan 2022

Location: Jack Mundey Place and Playfair Street
Times: 5pm - 10pm, Fridays

Pastries don’t get any better than Anna Polyviou's beautiful, buttery creations. This celebrity chef has been a guest judge on Master Chef, won pastry chef of the year, and worked in some of the world’s most prestigious kitchens. 

Her signature pink mohawk and edgy style have made her a favourite on Aussie food TV and her cookbooks just keep selling out. And now she’s teamed up with The Rocks for the ultimate Sweet Summer Street Party. Sounds delicious right?

Playfair Street will be filled with neon lights, bright colours and delicious eats and drinks. Wander the street with a drink in hand and soak up the summer night vibes. The lady herself will have her own stall stocking raw The Rocky Road cookie dough made specially for The Rocks, as well as branded aprons and cookbooks. 


In addition to Anna, The Sweet Summer Street Party will have no shortage of delicious food to enjoy including:

  • new Rocks pop up, Butter, serving exclusive Hennessy and Belvedere cocktails in collaboration with Rambling Rascals

  • East 33 Sydney Rock Oysters, dine on fresh oysters accompanied by champagne and cocktails

  • Salt Meats Cheese, offering antipasto boards

  • Hot Dog Bites

  • Bar Ombre

  • Urban Gypsy

  • The Street Food project

  • The Citrus Factory

  • Malaysian Delights by Zam

  • La Gitana, and more!

Stalls are subject to change due to the current Covid 19 wave. 


There’ll also be DJs set up throughout the Markets each Friday night from 6pm, as well as dancers and drummers from Junkyard Beats at The Rocks Square and roving throughout the precinct.
