Games and roving performers on George Street (midday till 3pm)

Following the GIO Oz-Day 10k Wheelchair Race, George Street will be transformed into a family-friendly playground.

Challenge new friends in a game of giant Snakes and Ladders, Jenga or Chess on George Street.

Roving street performers will bring a little bit of magic with their giant bubbles, unicycles and amazing juggling skills. They’ll be joined by majestic stilt walkers, whose summer-inspired characters will wow spectators young and old.

Grab a beer and a bite, then sit back and listen to a line-up of some of Sydney's freshest DJs at the Warrane Stage in First Fleet Park.
