Love Lanes Festival is an annual event held in Wyong in February, with a link to Valentine’s Day. It showcases Wyong in its best light with 3 lanes, 4 stages and 1 park. Explore hidden gems, discover forgotten laneways. This one day festival is a combination of colours, sounds and smells with the buzz, hype and vibe of an outdoor community street festival encompassing the theme of ‘Love’.
Coastwide First National Lane
Pull into the bustling ‘Coastwide First National Lane’ and indulge in some of the tastiest offerings from Wyong’s local favourites. Try some delicious street food, shop ‘til you drop at some of the retail stalls and take a romantic stroll under the twinkling lights of the piazza. This laneway is also home to the Bendigo Main stage, Coastwide First National Chill Out Zone and the Fish Bowl Arcade.
Pop into Bakers Lane and listen to the beats of the MADD stage. Bring out your inner child in the Wyong Baptist Church Kidz Zone, enjoy Motel Mezza’s licenced chill-out area, get lost in the array of activities and hype whilst forgetting about the hustle and bustle of the CBD.
Take a stroll down Grand Hotel Lane and enjoy good times accompanied by great tunes and cold beverages in the licensed bar area. Explore the market precinct or relax on the spacious ‘Chapman Building’ lawn whilst enjoying the talented aerial performers and entertaining buskers.
