Penrith City Council is proud to once again host a fun and inclusive day of celebrations for NAIDOC Week on Thursday 7 July, between 10am and 4pm at Jamison Park.
NAIDOC Week is an opportunity to celebrate the significance of our Aboriginal heritage and the important contribution Penrith’s Aboriginal population make in our community and across our vibrant City.
Council’s free NAIDOC community event will feature performances, activities, food, stalls and much more.
Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen encourages everyone to come along and enjoy a day celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, history and heritage.
“After a short hiatus due to COVID-19, Council is proud to once again host one of the biggest NAIDOC celebrations in NSW,’ Cr Hitchen said.
“The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are the oldest continuing cultures on our planet, and Council recognises these cultures have often endured, struggled and survived against a backdrop of adversity.’
“We look forward to taking this opportunity to come together as a community to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples,’ she continued.
The event will also embrace this year’s theme, Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!, a call to action for systemic change.
