Last year big crowds returned to the Festival of Fisher’s Ghost, with a revitalised twilight street parade sparking renewed interest among the community. 

“The new twilight time for the street parade proved a huge success with the crowds and we received so much positive feedback from the community that we decided to hold the Fisher’s Ghost street parade at twilight again this year,” Mayor Brticevic said.

“The wonderful thing about holding the parade at twilight is that it allows the lighting to really shine, adding to an already fabulous atmosphere.”

Aside from the parade, the festival is a wonderful collection of events which appeal to people of all ages and with a range of interests. 

The Fisher's Ghost Art Award is now in its 56th year and has more than $30,000 in prize money. The exhibition will be open to the public from November 3 until December 13 and all artworks will be available to purchase.

Fisher’s Gig has been part of the festival since 1998 and is earning a reputation for launching young music careers. This event plays host to a lineup of local Macarthur talent as well as headliner acts and kicks off at 3pm, November 3 at Bradbury Park. 

Run by Campbelltown City Council with the support of the Youth Entertainment Reference Group, it is a musical celebration for all ages and is a drug and alcohol free event.
