The Living Smart Festival will return to Lake Macquarie this September

Gardening Australia host Costa Georgiadis will headline this year’s Living Smart Festival in Lake Macquaire this September.

The festival weekend will include the popular Friday night Feast for the Senses dinner under the stars, featuring locally and sustainably sourced produce, and a brand new event dedicated to international flavours and cultures.

“Living Smart Festival wouldn’t exist without the passion of everyday families in Lake Mac and beyond to learn more, and do more, about living more sustainably and making a difference,” Lake Macquarie Mayor, Kay Fraser said.

Manager Arts, Culture and Tourism Jacqui Hemsley said new to this year’s line-up was a free Sunday ‘Living Together Festival’, celebrating multiculturalism in our community.

“We’ll be featuring workshops, demonstrations, market stalls, world music, international cooking classes, global gardens and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and language sessions,” she said.

This year’s Living Smart Festival is scheduled for 23-25 September at Speers Point Park. Applications are now open for stallholders for the Saturday and Sunday events. Visit to find out more.
