Sydney Festival 2014

Our winter is fast approaching, but in Sydney, the summer is about to begin! Makes me think about travel and all the places I would love to go. Sydney is definitely high on my destination list, and events like this make the trip even more appealing.

Sydney Festival is an annual arts festival celebrating Sydney in summer. The festival takes place every year in January and transforms Sydney with an explosive array of theater, dance, music, visual arts, film and genre-defying events. There is surely something for everyone.


The festival is back this year. as Sydney returns to its favorite indoor and outdoor venues throughout the city. It presents a huge and diverse program of free and ticketed events. So even if you don't have a lot of extra spending cash, you can still find lots of fun events for free at the festival.





Sydney Festival is comprised of 104 events, 21 of those are free! A whopping 372 performances across 33 indoor and outdoor venues, featuring 722 artists from 80 companies across 17 countries in the world. There will be 10 world premieres this year, as well as 4 Australian premieres and 13 Australian exclusives.

Sydney Festival is a show you won't want to miss. Australians and visitors know Sydney Festival is one of the most wonderful summer festivals in the world. This claim is underpinned by the city's charisma and lustre, making it an ideal showcase for the world's greatest artists.

Wouldn't you love to visit this amazing country and festival, and have a wonderful, cultural experience? I know I would.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
