Prior to the Sydney Derby on Saturda;y, January, Parramatta's EAT STREET becomes a Wanderland for all you FC Fans. 


The family-friendly pre-game street activation will include live music, games, foosball machines and freestyle soccer demonstrations in Church St from 5pm -7.30pm. Freestyle soccer should be fantastic!



Fans are encouraged to take public transport and bring out the 'black and red' for the occasion. 



Activities are jam-packed into the good weather months: from Parramasala Festival, Parramatta Day, Loy Krathong, Christmas and New Year's activities and then on to the Sydney Festival in Parramatta kicking off on 7January.




2016 seems to be a year of promise for Parramatta. The Sydney Festival (Parramatta) has expanded exponentially.. . so many exciting activities and 'a premiere' of the unusual  La Verita, brought to us by Compagnia Finzi Pasca   http://finzipasca.com/


We are inclinded to say this is performance art, but we may not be doing it justice. So, we plan to attend a La Verita in the early days of January. (8-17 Jan) at Riverside Theatres. We suggest you order tickets quickly. 


Following La Verita, CYPHER brings on stage the choreography of Nick Power. Cypher is a celebration of hip-hop culture with ultra talented dancers. . . the promo states: 'if Cypher was anymore in your face, it'd leave bruises'. This probably says it all! http://www.sydneyfestival.org.au/2016/cypher


The events of Festival 2016 are varied and broad: Artists from Cambodia, Catalonia,  Reykjavik, India, Switzerland, USA and Australia perform in eighteen days bringing their unique art and talents to Parramatta.  http://www.sydneyfestival.org.au/2016/all
