The Cabramatta Moon Festival is an iconic Sydney event, attracting more than 90,000 attendees each year.
From 9am to 8pm, the streets of Cabramatta will come alive with a variety of fun, family friendly activities and culinary delights, centred around Freedom Plaza and its iconic Pailau gates. Stalls open from 9am, with entertainment from 11am.
This year’s exciting headline acts will be announced in the coming weeks. The crowd favourites will be returning, including the prawn peeling competition, children’s chopstick challenge and noodle and moon cake eating competitions.
There will also be the traditional lion dance to kick off the celebrations, community performances, market stalls, and the lantern parade led by the Moon Goddess. The celebrations will conclude with a colourful fireworks display.
