The Fete is an old-fashioned community fair with stalls, BBQ, Devonshire Teas, entertainment from local groups and schools, street theatre, crafts and arts fun, computer room access, Salvos I/net bus, face painting, wet sponge throwing, and jumping castle amongst the many activities which will be out on Mitchell Street near Glebe Point Road for the day.

Organised completely by local groups, facilitated by the Glebe Development Project, all funds raised are used by community groups to assist in local projects – Glebe Public School, HopeStreet Urban Compassion, Glebe Youth Centre, COW (Concerned Older Women), Glebe Computer Project amongst others.

The Fete Theme for 2010 is ‘Caring for our Environment’ and both City of Sydney and The Watershed will be helping local residents think about their own ‘ecological footprints’ in the community.
