Concord Carnival is returning to town this April with heaps of family fun on the cards including head-spinning rides, food trucks, roving entertainment and more. The family-friendly fiesta is bringing all the colourful vibes to Greenlees Park on Sunday, April 2. With the theme ‘Halcyon Days‘, visitors are promised a nostalgic throwback to the bygone era of horse and carriage rides, vintage fashion and more.
This is going to be a Sunday chock full of fun, food and games so don’t miss out. And bring the littlies along because there’s free amusement rides and roving performers to keep them entertained.
Attracting over 30,000 people from across the city every year, the carnival brings a day of old-fashioned fun and games to the inner west suburb.
This year’s celebrations pay homage to the historical significance of the Halcyon Days, a period of time that spanned from the 1920s through to the late 1940s. Expect classic vehicle displays, performances by swing dancers and a spiegeltent that includes jazz music, juggling, magic shows and illusions complete with a 1920s art deco and mirrored façade. And we know the 1920s and 30s never went out of style so don’t forget to dress up in your most vibrant vintage outfits.
“This time period still defines the character of Concord,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.
“This is an opportunity to step into the past and celebrate the heritage of Concord.”
