The Crescent Plaza in the Fairfield City Centre has won first place in the prestigious LNA Master Landscapers Association Awards for its stunning design and practical use of urban space.

Fairfield Live Art, Music and Entertainment (FLAME) Festival is a new Council event that will showcase talented musicians and artists from Western Sydney.

The festival will be held across several venues in Fairfield City Centre on Friday 6 April, 5pm-9pm.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said FLAME Festival highlighted Council’s commitment to supporting people who live and work in Fairfield City.

“FLAME Festival is an example of Council’s continued support of local culture, performers and businesses,” Mayor Carbone said. “Council proudly hosts numerous free events throughout the year that showcase our vibrant diversity and the talent of locals.”

“FLAME Festival will exclusively showcase performers from Fairfield City and Western Sydney, providing locals with an opportunity to shine in front of friends, family and the broader community.”

“This new free community event will be held across several participating Fairfield venues, including restaurants, a bowling alley, a bookshop and other locations, bringing colour and energy from up to 90 performances to Fairfield City Centre for one amazing evening.”

“In addition to free entertainment, attendees can enjoy authentic and delicious Middle Eastern, Latin American and other international cuisine from Fairfield’s many eateries.”

“FLAME Festival adds to Council’s calendar of exciting family-friendly events that make Fairfield City a wonderful place to live, work and play.”

Mayor Carbone said performers and artists still had an opportunity to get involved.

“Council is busy organising the spectacular celebration and I encourage musicians and artists who are interested in getting involved to register their interest before Sunday 25 February,” Mayor Carbone said.

“We also encourage attendees to share their favourite moments of the entertainment-filled evening with the hashtag #FLAME18.”
