If you’re looking for something to do tonight with friends or family that involves taking in the balmy, summer evening air we’ve been enjoying of late and eating some delicious food, then may we suggest Parnell’s brand new street festival?
As part of Auckland’s Summernova series, Food Truck Collective is holding the inaugural Faraday Street Festival in Parnell, and it’s set to be a vibrant and fun-filled night, stacked to the brim with beats, eats and good vibes.
Why not wander among some of Auckland’s tastiest food trucks and gather a varied spread for dinner? For authentic Italian pasta, you can’t go past Amaranto Pasta & Cucina; while the Israeli street food from By Carmel specialises in delicious and generously-filled pita breads. Akemi’s Gyoza has some of the tastiest Japanese dumplings in town, and for dessert (if you still have room), make sure you hit up Lalele Organic Gelato, or maybe a sweet crêpe from Captain Crêpes.
Live music from Little Sunday will be providing an upbeat soundtrack to the proceedings, while The Paddington Parnell is setting up a pop-up bar if you’re craving an alcoholic beverage to take the edge off the week.
Faraday Street Festival kicks off at 5pm and will be running until 9pm, so get a crew together and go check it out.
