The City of Sydney has deemed park grounds unsafe for public events due to sustained rain saturation
Due to sustained rain saturation at Prince Alfred Park, The City of Sydney has advised that the Sydney Night Noodle Markets presented by Citi cannot go ahead from Tuesday 22 March until Sunday 27 March, and will need to be postponed to a later date.
Sadly, along with the majority of large parks in central Sydney, the impact of the last few weeks’ heavy rainfall has made the grounds of Prince Alfred Park not safe or suitable to cater for a large public event. Such events need safe and sturdy ground that can withstand vehicles, temporary installations and heavy footfall.
“We are absolutely devastated that the Sydney Night Noodle Markets cannot proceed as planned, though the health, safety and comfort of our market-goers, stallholders, suppliers and partners is the absolute priority,” says Venessa Cowell, Head of Nine Food Events, organisers of the Night Noodle Markets.
“The City of Sydney has deemed Prince Alfred Park unfit for an event of this size, and it will take several weeks for it to return to normal. Unfortunately the recent weather conditions have impacted many of our city’s beautiful large parks making relocating not an option.
“The Night Noodle Markets are a much anticipated event, and after a two year hiatus, we want to ensure everyone has the best time possible. Be assured they will go ahead this year with an outstanding line-up of stallholders and pop-ups from our partners, and we look forward to announcing new dates shortly.
“In the meantime, we urge Sydneysiders to continue to support our local hospitality industry, by heading out and about to support restaurants, cafes and food outlets across the city,” she continues.
The new dates for the 2022 Sydney Night Noodle Markets will be announced soon.
