King's School Parramatta

The 2014 annual King's Spring Festival
is 2 days of family fun with something for absolutely everyone to enjoy in this beautiful location. Held on the picturesque grounds of the exclusive King's School at Parramatta, the Spring Festival and Annual Art Show weekend has flourished into an event for all Sydneysiders – not only for those directly connected to The King's School.

The art show provides some of Australia's leading artists the opportunity to show their works in the demographic heart of Australia's largest city. With a gala opening planned for Friday 22nd August from 7-10pm, drinks and canapés will be served and this will be the only opportunity to purchase artworks. Tickets can be purchased online to attend this event.
