The celebration doesn't stop when the Yabun Festival finishes. Lucky for us this year's official Yabun After Party is at the Lansdowne Hotel (pictured below), just a short walk from the festival site. Tickets are $15 each and available online from Eventbrite or on the day at Yabun Festival from the Gadigal Information Service tent.
Every year Yabun Festival partners with Inner West Council to host a FREE movie night. This year it takes place the night after Yabun on the 27th of January at 8PM with animations from The Dreaming Series, then at 9PM the main feature starts, the critically acclaimed 2017 release Jasper Jones (trailer featured below).
This is a FREE event!
Just in time to get us excited about Yabun 2018, City of Sydney produced this great highlight clip (below) from Yabun 2017. Not long to go now!
