Riverfest

Riverfest is our annual, premier community event for ‘Our Living River’, celebrating the Parramatta River and surrounding catchment.

This year’s Riverfest will be held from 15-24 October, and offer a series of webinars and smaller, in-person events and activities (subject to COVID-19 restrictions).

The theme for this year’s Riverfest is ‘Caring for our Catchment’. With the significant impact that COVID-19 continues to have on our lives, protecting our natural environment has never been more important. The positive effects of connecting with nature on our health and wellbeing are well-known. Providing ways for people to care for their local green spaces, waterways and wildlife also encourages a greater sense of purpose and connection with their communities. If we care for our catchment it will care for us.
