We're reviewing our major events program and we want to know what you think about Council events held in the Inner West on 26 January.


At its meeting on 13 November 2018, the elected Council resolved that officers conduct a holistic review of the events program, incorporating:

a. Consideration of the reframing the Marrickville community festival currently held on 26 January; and

b. Consultation with the local Aboriginal community and the wider community about how the nature of Council’s January 26 events should further evolve to recognise the history of Indigenous Australia.
