Council prides itself on executing events to a high standard which foster social cohesion and provide the community the opportunity to create memories filled with engaging entertainment reflective of our local talent and culture.
We are continuing to invest efforts into activating public spaces in our local government area by introducing new events such as the Strathfield Festival which proved to be a great success and an upcoming event, Homebush Vibes.
With recent setbacks caused by venue issues, Council has made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Spring Festival and will go out to community consultation to receive firsthand feedback on how to improve and shape next year’s Spring Festival.
Whilst it was not an easy decision to make, we look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas which will help shape our much-loved family festival. A survey presenting ideas for the future of Spring Festival will be made available in due course.
We’re off to the drawing board and hope to see you there!
Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates on all Strathfield Events.
Stall Holder Applications are now closed for 2022.
