Family-friendly activities, live entertainment & fireworks

Ring in the new year in style at Parramatta's ultimate end-of-year celebration!

Held on New Year's Eve (Monday 31st December 2018) in the stunning grounds of the World Heritage-Listed Parramatta Park, this year's event will feature a host of family-friendly activities and entertainment across four activation areas and two stages. Entry is FREE and all are welcome to join in the festivities from 4pm!

Here's what you can look forward to:

  • The Crescent

    Spread out your picnic rug and spend a night under the stars singing along to classic tunes from the golden era of swing music. Hum along to the rhythms of The Organised Band and enjoy an exquisite fusion of jazz, pop, rock and blues as the Sydney Jazz Orchestra play music by some of the world's greatest artists (think Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles). Plus, sing along to iconic female anthems by the original sisters of swing and soul, legends of motown and divas of disco and pop as The Diamonds trio bring you to your feet. Hosted by MC Monica Trapaga (Play School).

    Coronation Hill

    Enjoy family-friendly entertainment featuring performances and 'meet and greets' with characters from Hotel Transylvania and Splashdance. Also, don't miss an interactive high energy, nonstop singing and dancing show featuring songs from Disney movies with Bethany Fisher's 'Kidding Around'.

    The Fairground

    Enjoy amusement rides, snacks, face painting and roving entertainment.

    Carnival on the Green

    Indulge in something sweet, take a spin on the amusement rides, learn how to hula hoop, have your face painted and meet some colourful roving characters along the way. Pick a spot to relax and unwind with one of the best views in the Park for the fireworks spectacular.


    Indulge in a range of fantastic dinner options and tasty snacks - think slow-cooked meats, Korean BBQ, dumplings, eclairs, sweet treats and more.


    Watch the skyline sparkle with colour and light at 9:00pm and experience a rush of light and colour during a grand fireworks finale with three amazing displays. Fireworks are visible from every event site.

    There's no better way to farewell 2018! Get your friends and family together this New Year's Eve and enjoy an evening of live music & entertainment, carnival rides, roving entertainment, delicious food and fireworks for FREE!
