Eel Festival 2023

Discover First Nations history of Parramatta, on Darug Country

This family-friendly event celebrates Parramatta’s namesake, the eel, and its significance to the local Burramuttagal people, who would gather in autumn to trade goods and share stories and food.

The day will begin with a Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony followed by a corroboree.

Connect with First Nations culture through the range of drop-in activities and performances across the day.
