Camden Show and the Thirlmere Festival of Steam may have been cancelled this year - but now you can get your festival fix at a new event in Campbelltown.

Campbelltown Council has announced Campbelltown Athletics Centre will host a new Festival on the Field event in April.

The Leumeah stadium will be buzzing with carnival atmosphere on Saturday, April 17 and the best news is entry is free.

There will be a variety of stalls, kids' activities food trucks, rides and music from local artists.

Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic said the event would be a great time for people of all ages.

"Festival on the Field will bring loads of fun and entertainment for everyone to enjoy and promises to be a great family day out with a variety of rides, entertainment and music," he said.

"After a challenging 2020, I'm delighted to see large-scale events returning for our community to enjoy and this event is sure to bring something unique and special to our event calendar."

Attendees will be able to book in for one of three sessions: 2pm-5pm, 6pm-9pm and a Quiet Hour session between 11am and 1pm.

The Quiet Hour is designed for people, including those on the autism spectrum, who thrive in an environment which doesn't overload the senses.

There will be no music on stage or on rides during the Quiet Hour and a sensory tent will be set up with play equipment, activities and chill out zones.

"The Quiet hour sessions have been immensely popular at previous events and provide an environment in which people with disability can feel comfortable to enjoy the event with their friends and family," Cr Brticevic said.

Tickets are limited at 3000 for each session to comply with social distancing requirements and a clean of facilities and rides will take place after each session.

Tickets become available from 10am on Wednesday, April 7. Visit campbelltown.nsw.gov.au for more information.
