One of the most exciting line-ups of entertainment ever created for Cabramatta Moon Festival means there will be something for everyone to enjoy on Sunday, 8 September.

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.

SBS Pop Asia host, actor and martial artist Andy Trieu will join forces with ZE:A K-Pop idol Kevin Kim as part of a high-energy evening of pop, dance and audience participation with a jaw-dropping line up that will include dance powerhouses Harmony, DanceKool featuring Niramsin, and Kookies N Kream.

The evening will be capped off with a spectacular fireworks display at 8pm.

Earlier in the day, children will be wowed with two performances and a meet and greet with the cutest kitty in Cabramatta - Hello Kitty. Join Hello Kitty and her best friends as they sing and dance to some of their favourite songs at 12pm and 2pm with the Hello Kitty Karaoke Show.

Matt Falloon and his Trained Balloons will also perform at 12pm. The international award-winning balloon artist will wow all ages with his hilarious show and blow everyone away with his balloon-bending antics.

A first for the Cabramatta Moon Festival will be the District 8 dining precinct. Stop by the corner of Cabramatta Road West and Railway Parade for a selection of delicious food and refreshing drinks, take a seat and soak in the atmosphere.

District 8 will also have a high-octane edge to it, with Hot Import Nights displaying a selection of high performance vehicles right next door. They will show a selection of modified Japanese, European, Australian and old-school cars, a motorcycle and an exotic super car. There will be DJs recreating the classic Southern California vibe as well as giveaways.

Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said there will be something for everyone at the Cabramatta Moon Festival.

“For 21 years, this festival has been the heartbeat of the Cabramatta community. Traditionally, the Moon Festival is a time to join with your family to give thanks for the moon and the bountiful harvest,” Mayor Carbone said.

“The Cabramatta Moon Festival is a family event. From the entertainment, community displays, food, stalls and activities, there is something for all ages to enjoy.

“This festival brings together people from many cultures – families, friends, neighbours and total strangers – from all over Sydney to celebrate our wonderful diversity and connect with one of the most important dates on the south-east Asian calendar.

“I look forward to this year’s festival being the biggest and best ever held.”

The crowd favourites will be returning, including the prawn peeling competition, children’s chopstick challenge, noodle and moon cake eating competitions.

There will also be the traditional lion dance to kick off the celebrations, community performances, martial arts displays, market stalls, and the children’s lantern parade led by the Moon Goddess. The celebrations will conclude with a colourful fireworks display.
