New community events program unveiled

Residents and visitors to Canterbury-Bankstown are set to benefit from a new program of community events, approved by Council overnight.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the program includes an Australia Day night festival and a month-long Arabian bazaar-style event in Lakemba.

"As the largest council area in NSW, this was an opportunity to position Canterbury-Bankstown as a creative, innovative, attractive and dynamic place," Mayor Asfour said.

"So, when undertaking this review, it was important we ensured our events remained relevant and attractive to a wide audience."

Mayor Asfour said the program is based on community feedback received during Council’s review, from 349 people.

"We now intend on delivering some signature events, unique to our City; major city-wide events; and local community events," he said.

"From 2019, Ramadan will be kicked off by the Haldon Street Festival and be followed by daily events during the holy month. It was clear by the significant number of people who attended this year’s event, it’s something both locals and visitors enjoy attending.

"In regards to Australia Day, an overwhelming 91 per cent of the community told us they preferred to stay home or go to a friend’s BBQ. However, they also told us, they would attend a night event if one was staged. It is for this reason we’ve decided to host a twilight Australia Day event, running from 6-9pm, featuring a fireworks display."

Canterbury-Bankstown’s new Events Calendar for 2018-19 is:
