The Newtown Jets, Philter and The Music & Booze Co are bringing an inclusive footy,

food and music festival to Henson Park.

A trio of Sydney institutions are coming together to launch an inclusive community festival that celebrates three cornerstones of Sydney’s cultural landscape: footy, food and music. The inaugural Welcome Day will arrive at Henson Park courtesy of the Newtown Jets, Philter Brewing and The Music & Booze Co, the team behind King Street Carnival, The Beer, Footy and Food Festival and The House of Music and Booze.

One of the NRL’s foundation clubs back in 1908 and a thriving force in the Inner West for over a century, the Newtown Jets pride themselves as a football club for all. As part of this push to make rugby league welcoming and inclusive, the club has also teamed up with LGBTQIA+ party collective Heaps Gay and its founder Kat Dopper, plus longtime collaborators The Music & Booze Co and Philter Brewing, to celebrate Sydney’s diversity and ensure everyone feels at home on the hill of Henson Park.

Hitting the Marrickville Astrodome on Saturday, June 24, Welcome Day will bring together a stellar lineup of local restaurants, food trucks, distillers, seltzer brands, winemakers and DJs in support of a jam-packed day of rugby league. The day’s on-field action will be headlined by a NSW Cup clash between the Newtown Jets and the Parramatta Eels. The Jets are forgoing their cross-code differences with the Petersham Rugby Union Club for the day, and hosting two union games — one men’s and one women’s — as curtain-raisers.

On the food lineup, you can expect eats from Rolling PennyPepitosBaba’s Place, Titos Tacos, Over Embers, Slick Ricks Pizza, Sparky’s Jerk BBQ and Condimental.

And what would a day at Henson Park be without a couple of choice beverages? Poor Toms, Archie Rose, Young Henrys (slinging gin and ginger beer), Lilyfields Gin, Este Spirits, Brix Distillery, Mobius Distillery, Kraken Spiced Rum and DNA Distillery will all be on hand to sample their expertly crafted spirits. You can also expect beers from the Jets and Henson Park’s number-one supporter Philter Brewing, wines from Doom Juice and P&V, seltzers from Cantina OK! and Fellr, and cocktails courtesy of The House of Music & Booze in collaboration with Curatif Cocktails.

Music-wise, FBi Radio will be supplying the DJs, so you can expect plenty of local Sydney dance floor-fillers to be represented, plus the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Choir will be singing the house down.

There will also be plenty of entertainment for the kids including free jumping castles, face painting & pass the ball.

You can nab tickets for $20 or $10 for kids over 12 / concession via Oztix.
