Chevron Renaissance has had somewhat of a renaissance recently and if you haven’t noticed the street art around the complex, you need to get down there. Easter would be a great time to do that, because the crew is bringing together a bunch of artists to celebrate Feaster. Chevron Feaster will run 30 March to 12 April.
Live music from the likes of Eleea Naarro, Smooth Groove, Leigh James Acoustic and Clare Nella will feature every weekend from 6.00 – 9.00pm and kids can see the Easter bunny on Thursday 2 and Saturday 4 April. There are also a heap of prizes up for grabs with Easter-themed selfie competitions.
The complex recently underwent a $5M facelift and is focussing on developing a unique urban feel.
