The decision has been made to postpone our Illuminate New Year’s Eve celebration for 2020, due to the ongoing COVID-19 risk in Sydney and the forecast for rainy weather.
Council has been closely monitoring the escalating COVID situation in Sydney. The decision was made due to the increasing number of unlinked cases outside of the Northern Beaches.
While Fairfield Showground and Illuminate have COVID-Safe plans that exceed NSW Health guidelines, and the event could have gone ahead under the current NSW Health guidelines, Council has taken a conservative approach to put the safety and wellbeing of the community first.
Council will refund everyone’s booking fee and Council will look into rescheduling the event in mid-2021 as a potential celebration of the community being able to come together again.
