What began as a community celebration of Woolgoolga’s unique Punjabi heritage, has evolved into so much more than that. Thanks to exceptional community support and local business getting behind the event, not only does it bring the community together, it boosts business, creates excitement and buzz and puts the beautiful region we call the Northern Beaches on the map in the tourism industry.
Over the year, as visitor numbers have grown, so has the festival. What started out as a small one-day community fair has now evolved into one of the top Destination NSW Flagship Events. Curryfest now includes lead up events right throughout September and draws people not just from interstate but overseas as well.
While the lead up events are always hugely popular, of course the Curryfest market day is the main event. This year on September 23, the town of Woolgoolga transforms into a bustling hive of entertainment, delicious cuisine and family fun. The main street is closed to traffic and lined with hundreds of food and market stalls.
