The beloved Cabramatta Moon Festival is making a much-awaited return after a two-year pandemic pause. The mammoth celebration of Southeast Asian culture will feature a packed day of food, entertainment and heaps of family fun. Fairfield City Council is bringing the celebration to the city this Sunday with pho eating competitions, family rides, live music and more.
Cabramatta Moon Festival
Pre-covid times saw nearly 90,000 people flock to Cabramatta to join in on the festivities. Although the official date of the Mid-Autumn Festival is September 10, the council is advancing the celebration by a few weeks. Now set to take place on Sunday, August 28, there’s heaps to look forward to at the festival.
The critically acclaimed ABBA tribute show Bjorn Again will headline the event so you can groove to classic ABBA hits all day. Plus there’s the traditional lion dance, food and market stalls, cooking demonstrations and more.
The family friendly festival will also feature crowd favourites like the prawn peeling competition and children’s chopstick challenge. The pho eating competition will also make a comeback so everyone can join in for some light hearted fun. And that’s not all, the program will also see mother and son duo Angie and celebrity chef Dan Hong go head-to-head to make the quintessential modern spring roll. It’s fun times all around and everyone’s invited. Soak up the spirit and culture of Australia’s largest south-east Asian community at Cabramatta’s Freedom Plaza.
