EVENTS - That's a wrap! Oxtravaganza makes a splash over the weekend.

After a wet weekend Oxtravaganza is done and dusted! Eastside was awash in glitter, music and laughter as the third annual Oxtravaganza kicked off!

The marketplace was colourful and bright in Foley Street and as the day progressed Oxford Street ramped up the action! We had Sax Fetish and their Naked Barber pulling the crowds and the stunning musical performance from Cherry Earhart rang out strong.

Wayside Chapel had the most delicious treats on sale outside Ariel Bookstore. Darlinghurst Primary School had their “love darlo” stall up and running. Swim and undies models braved the rainy weather. And our very own, favourite Queen, Maxi Shield was spruiking outside ACON in a warm up before her show later at The Oxford. Around the corner in Bourke St bikes were being pimped (Lekker Bikes), rainbow cakes served (Christophers Cakes), DJ’s and BBQ’s were warming up (Lumiere Cafe) and rum cocktails were on the menu (BRIX Distillery).

Oxtravaganza ambassador Sheldon Riley was wandering up and down the event popping in and out of shops, with a quick performance here and there. He was glowing after being given the rockstar treatment at Kryolan and this showed up beautifully as he posed for pictures outside Cork and Canvas for their fingerprinted Pride Tree.

If you didn’t make it to Oxtravaganza this year then don’t worry they will be back in 2020, bigger and better than ever. If you are a business who would like to participate next year then let the organisers know by emailing info@oxtravaganza.com.au.

STYLE - Oxtravaganza is the place to be for the local makers and creatives.

Not only are Foley Street and Oxford Square being activated for Oxtravaganza, the East Sydney Community Arts Centre will be hosting a locals clothing swap! The Clothing Exchange will be supporting sustainability from 3pm at the Community Centre on Burton Street in Darlinghurst. Starting at 3pm it’s the perfect addition to your Oxtravaganza plans! We recommend bringing 8 pieces of clothes to swap.
