Date: Thursday 31 December 2020

Time: 5pm – 10pm 

Venue: Fairfield Showground (443 Smithfield Rd, Prairiewood NSW 2176).

Illuminate is Fairfield City's family New Year's Eve celebration, held in the heart of our City at Fairfield Showground.

With carnival rides and games, food, kids activities and an exciting line up of entertainment all culminating in a huge fireworks display at the showground and participating local clubs, Illuminate is one event not to be missed.

2019 was the biggest Illuminate yet, with more than 7,500 people gathering to ring in the new year with family in friends.

In 2019, more than $125,000 was raised for bushfire relief from the proceeds of all ticket sales, collections taken up on the night and generous donations from local clubs and businesses.

Money raised was donated to the families of the two Rural Fire Services volunteers from Horsley Park Brigade, Geoffrey Keaton and Andrew O’Dwyer who tragically lost their lives shortly before Christmas; the Salvation Army Disaster Appeal; and the RSPCA Bushfire Appeal assisting with treatment of animals impacted by the fires.
