News » Riverview Market & Henry Lawson Festival Sunday 9th JulyLast updated 3:37 PM on 30 June 2017
The markets will be on in the middle weekend of the holidays, July 9. The Henry Lawson Festival is combining with Riverview Markets in July to celebrate Henry Lawson's 150th birthday through readings and folk music. Henry Lawson came to Como many times, often staying in a fisherman's shack on the Woronora River side of Como. His association with the suburb has been acknowledged through the naming of Henry Lawson Reserve in Wolger Road Como. I am looking forward to attending the July market and joining in on the celebrations. I hope those families not away on holidays are able to pop into the markets. There will be a display in the library of some of the students work about Henry Lawson.
