Eat Street, Shine festivals postponed due to Covid

The popular Eat the Street Festival and Shine Festival of Light have been postponed due to COVID-19.

The inaugural Shine Festival, which will illuminate Molesworth Street and its laneways with artwork, will now be held later in the year.

Eat the Street will also be held at that time to coincide with the last day of Shine. Unfortunately, Eat the Street will also be scaled down and will now be held in Eggins Lane and Carrington Street only.

Lismore City Council’s Manager of Liveable and Active Communities Tony Duffy said Council made the decision to help protect our community from the spread of COVID-19.

“The safety of our community always come first and with the COVID-19 situation changing almost daily, we decided to err of the side of caution,” he said.

“We understand the community’s disappointment and we will let everyone know once the new dates are confirmed.”
