Explore hidden gems and discover forgotten lane ways

Love Lanes Festival is back for its sixth year! This annual event will be held in Wyong on Saturday 11 February 2023—connecting us all to Valentine’s Day.

The evening festival showcases Wyong in its best light with four lanes, four stages and one park, all coming to life with entertainment.  Guests can enjoy the sounds, colours, smells, and the hype and vibe of an outdoor community street festival encompassing the theme of ‘Love’.

Expect to see live music, roving entertainment, food and market stalls, a kid's zone, a circus precinct and more!
