Trade your trash for funky threads, books and more whilst groovin’ to live tunes at the Redfern Parkside Scavenge

About this event

Did you miss us? Cos we sure missed you Scavengers!

2021 has been quite the whirlwind but we are excited to kick off the new year with our first Scavenge event at Redfern Park! Get excited to listen to some sweet tunes, reconnect with your neighbours and trade your trash for ‘cash’.

Haven't been to a Scavenge yet? Well, here is what it’s all about - for every 10 pieces of litter you collect and sort you will earn 1 Trash Token that can be used at our pop-up markets or pre-loved goods! We also have some sweet prizes for Scavengers who go above and beyond in the litter clean up AND there will also be talks and stalls showcasing the awesome work by local eco-change makers.

What’s not to love? Register now to become an environmental ninja and share a great day of making a difference and having fun, all whilst cleaning up your environment.

Hats off to the City of Sydney’s Festival and Events Sponsorship Grant, which has made this event possible!

What to bring?
