Fri 26th City of Parramatta Council, in partnership with the Australia Day Council of New South Wales, invites you to register for CARnivalewhich will be held in Parramatta Park on Australia Day, Friday, 26 January 2018.

CARnivale showcases a wonderful collection of classic vehicles including cars, fire engines, trucks, coaches, military vehicles, motorbikes and vintage speedway cars.

This is the third year CARnivale has been held in Parramatta Park and the location has proved to be very popular. There was a large increase in the number of people coming to the Park specifically to see CARnivale after the first year and again after the second year and we expect the 2018 event to attract an even larger crowd.

CARnivale 2017 saw some major changes to the event based on information gathered from entrants and visitors. For 2018 organisers are again making changes to improve the experience for CARnivale participants.

In addition to CARnivale, other activities in the Park will include a spectacular hot air balloon display from 6am, followed by the Parramatta BBQ Festival, a family zone with concert and kids’ rides in The Crescent, the Hottest 100 Party in the Park, concert acts on the Main Stage and a fireworks spectacular to finish the day-long celebrations. For updates on all the day’s activities visit:  ausdayparramatta.com.au/ and   www.australiaday.com.au/
