Australia Day 2019 at Parramatta Park

ENTERTAINMENT

Saturday 26th January, 2019

Parramatta Park

Pitt & Macquarie Streets, Parramatta

Price: Free

All day, family-friendly and free.

The City of Parramatta will be hosting a massive Australia Day celebration in Parramatta Park. The day will start with a hot air balloon display at 6am and will later involve live music, kid-friendly activities, a barbeque competition and a car show.

Almost 1500 new citizens will be sworn in during the nation's largest Australia Day citizenship ceremony, followed by an Indigenous dance performance and music from Aboriginal band Yothu Yindi.

The live-music line-up includes The Chantoozies, Dale Ryder, Ross Wilson and Grant Walmsley. Local musicians from Western Sydney such as Ricky Nifo, Kymie, Mel Bailey, Jannah Beth and Nardean will also perform throughout the day.

The Family Stage will provide kid-friendly entertainment, headlined by Rapper D Minor. He will be joined on stage by Ross Wilson from 11am to judge the annual Parravision talent show grand final.

Australian and international pitmasters will put their skills to the test in the Big BBQ Competition, where participants will compete for the title of best smoked, grilled and basted meats. In 2019 the theme is lamb, and visitors can talk to the teams and sample their barbequed lamb shanks, ribs, cutlets and shoulders.

Carnivale is an annual showcase of classic vehicles featuring cars, motorbikes, trucks, vintage speedway cars and bikes. Highlights of the 2019 display include a 111-year old REO tourer and a collection of 20 Armstrong Siddeley cars to celebrate 100 years since their production.

Amusement rides, food stalls and roving performers will round out the entertainment for the day.

The 15-hour celebration will end at 9pm with a fireworks display.

From 6am to 9pm.
