Parramatta to start 2022 with a bang

The City of Parramatta will kick off 2022 with a collective bang as it hosts a series of five New Year’s Eve fireworks displays across the City on 31 December.

The COVID-safe events will take place in five locations across the City in a unique twist on the usual big celebration at Parramatta Park.

“Parramatta’s New Year’s Eve fireworks are back,” City of Parramatta Lord Mayor, Steven Issa said.

“While the evening may look a little different to previous years, our community will have the opportunity to stay local and have a fun and memorable evening with friends, family and neighbours as we all bid farewell 2021.”

The family-friendly events will be held at Binalong Park in Old Toongabbie; Northmead Reserve in Northmead; Doyle Ground in North Parramatta; Dundas Park in Dundas Valley; and George Kendall Riverside Park in Ermington. Gates will open from 5pm.

Guests can bring a picnic or choose from a fantastic selection of food trucks at each venue. There will also be live entertainment in the lead up to the fireworks at 9pm.

“After missing out last year because of the pandemic, I’m sure everyone will be looking forward to coming together, in a COVID-safe way, to celebrate,” Cr Issa said.

“New Year’s Eve is one of the most popular events on our calendar, and it will be a fantastic experience to be able to watch the dazzling fireworks displays from our very own local parks. Numbers are limited, so I encourage everyone to book their tickets as soon as possible!”

Tickets go on sale at 12 noon, Wednesday 8 December, and cost $5 (plus booking fee) for adults and are free for children under 12 years.

All profits will go to Project CSC, an initiative of The Salvation Army, which aims to support families of local children with medically complex or additional needs.

The safety and wellbeing of our community is Council’s highest priority. As a result, numbers are strictly limited and tickets will be released in intervals. Event attendees must adhere to COVID-19 Guidelines and Public Health Orders.
