New Year’s Eve Fireworks to Illuminate Fairfield City

Published Tuesday, 3rd November 2015

The biggest fireworks event South West Sydney has seen is coming to Fairfield this New Year’s Eve as 11 sites across the local government area simultaneously launch fireworks at 9pm.

Mayor of Fairfield City, Frank Carbone, said the event will extend the sky show Sydney is famous for to South West Sydney, uniting the region in one giant celebration.

“No longer do families need to converge on the Sydney CBD for a spectacular fireworks show on New Year’s Eve. They can celebrate here too,” Mayor Carbone said.

“On New Year’s Eve it can take hours to get to the City and back home again. It doesn’t make sense to direct everyone to Sydney on the same night- why make an already busy place even more congested?

“We are bringing the celebration to where the people are instead of the other way around, easing congestion in Sydney and enlivening the place where, in reality, most people live. Families in South West Sydney deserve a celebration just as much as those who live closer to Sydney.

“Residents of Fairfield City will be able to view some spectacular fireworks from their very own backyards no matter where they live, with the 11 sites spread across the LGA,” Mayor Carbone said.

Illuminate fireworks will be launched from:

  • Calmsley Hill City Farm (Council’s live family 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 & Sporting Club
  • Triglav Mounties

“Fairfield City Council will be complementing the City wide fireworks with a free live family site at Calmsley Hill City Farm from 4–9pm.

“The evening will be bursting with entertainment including amusement rides, children’s craft activities, roaming entertainment, food stalls and a stage featuring live music. In addition to this families will be able to enjoy all the activities the farm is famous for such as the animal exhibits,” said Mayor Carbone.

Due to the limited space available at Calmsley Hill City Farm, families are required to book tickets to secure their place by visiting are free with a gold coin donation on entry. Funds will be donated to a local charity.

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

Illuminate is being delivered in partnership with Fairfield City community clubs.
