Sydney’s Canterbury-Bankstown Children’s Festival postponed


The planned Canterbury-Bankstown Children’s Festival due to be held this weekend in Revesby has been postponed because of the impact of ongoing wet weather.

Announcing the decision today the President of the Children’s Festival Organisation, Mr Thuat Nguyen AM, said: “Due to bad weather last week, the Parks Team of the Council is concerned that the ground at Abel Reserve may be too soft to accommodate the Canterbury-Bankstown Children’s Festival 2022.”

“We are committed to ensuring that the event will create lots of fun, harmony and a genuine spectacle whilst at the same time safeguarding the well-being of all participants, especially the children present”, he said.

The festival will now be held at the same venue on October 30th.

Mr Nguyen expressed his appreciation for the great support already received from participating groups, sponsors, volunteers and other Children’s Festival friends.

“We hope to see you all on the rescheduled date and if anyone is interested in getting involved with this much-loved event, please contact us and we will get back to you soon,” he said.

The Children’s Festival is now in its 24th year having staged 36 events in Bankstown, Canterbury, Marrickville, Campbelltown and Sydney, attracting over a quarter of a million participants.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, no festivals were held during 2020 or 2021. The festival returned in June this year with a spectacular event in Darling Harbour, Sydney.

“I invite everyone, whatever your background, to embrace this fun-filled day and celebrate who and what we are as a wonderfully successful and unique multicultural society,” Mr Nguyen concluded.
