Fairfield City gets Illuminated this New Year’s Eve

Published Wednesday, 12th August 2015


Families across Fairfield City will be treated to a spectacular fireworks celebration this New Year’s Eve.

Fairfield City Council’s inaugural New Year’s Eve event, Illuminate, will deliver one of the biggest fireworks events South West Sydney has seen.

Illuminate will unite families across the City in one giant celebration as fireworks are launched from 11 sites across the local government area at 9pm. Families can also join in the fun at Council’s free live site at Calmsley Hill Farm from 4pm–9pm.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said Council’s live site at Calmsley Hill Farm would be a fun-filled family experience.

“The evening will be bursting with entertainment including amusement rides, children’s craft activities, roaming entertainment, food stalls and a stage featuring live music,” Mayor Carbone said.

“In addition, families will be able to enjoy all the activities the farm is famous for, including animal exhibits, tractor rides and the stock whip demonstration.

“The Calmsley Hill Farm live site will be perfect for families who want to participate in a fun celebration without the hassle of travelling outside of Fairfield City. Bring along a picnic blanket and settle in for an enjoyable family evening, which will culminate in fireworks at 9pm.

“For those families that choose to celebrate New Year’s Eve at home - we will bring the celebrations to you. Many residents will be able to view some spectacular fireworks from their very own backyard, with the 11 sites spread across the LGA."

Illuminate fireworks will be launched from:

  • Calmsley Hill Farm (Council’s live site)
  • St Johns Park Bowling Club
  • Mount Pritchard and District Community Club
  • Cabramatta Rugby Leagues Club
  • Fairfield RSL
  • Smithfield RSL
  • Club Marconi
  • Cabramatta Bowling Club
  • Cabra-Vale Diggers Club
  • Canley Heights RSL
  • Triglav Mounties

“Residents of Fairfield City will have a fantastic City-wide celebration to herald 2016 no matter where they are living in the LGA," Mayor Carbone said. "There will be no need to leave Fairfield City to ring in the New Year.”

Due to the outstanding community interest and limited space available at Calmsley Hill Farm, families are required to book tickets to secure their place. Information about tickets and how to obtain them will be released closer to the event date.

Fairfield City offers a diverse range of exciting festivals and events throughout the year, including Moon Festival, Culinary Carnivale, Lunar New Year, Christmas celebrations, Australia Day activities and, now, New Year’s Eve celebrations.
