Funky First Friday Picnics at “the Queeno”

A new Lithgow event set in the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park will be held on the first Friday of every month commencing in November. Lithgow City Council with financial support from the NSW and Australian Governments are proud to present Funky First Friday Picnics

When Raymond Berquelle designed the Charles Lewin Memorial Bandstand rotunda in 1933, he surely envisaged Funky Picnics - groups of friends, families, grandparents and grandkids seated on the lawn eating a free sausage sandwich while “The Lounge Catz Mini Big Band” creates the atmosphere. 

The sun is setting on a perfect day. The work week is forgotten. The weekend lies ahead, but it all starts with a Funky First Friday Picnic in the Park.

On Friday 5 November, the Lithgow community will gather to smell the roses and picnic with a free sausage sizzle and music. The event will commence at 5pm and run through to 8pm. What’s not to like?

Mayor Ray Thompson said: “Funky First Friday Picnics at “The Queeno” will be a series of music gatherings that have the potential of bringing people from all walks of life together, strengthening the bonds between them. The events will also help to improve well-being for our community after the recent COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions.” 

Bring along a picnic rug and settle in for an evening of music and community connecting.

This event will be Covid safe and check-in and guidelines will be in place.

This is a bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund project through the joint commonwealth/State Disaster Recovery Funding arrangements.  

Although funding for this project has been provided by both the Australian and NSW governments, the material contained herein does not necessarily represent the views of either government.
