What is the Crescent Summer Series?
The Crescent Summer Season is a season of events held each summer in Parramatta Park. It includes a mixture of commercial events and free community concerts to appeal to all ages.
Where is the Crescent?
The Crescent is a natural amphitheatre located by the river in the heart of Parramatta Park.
Is the Crescent Summer Series friendly for families?
This year we are including five free family-friendly events. These include: Carols in the Crescent with Guy Sebastian and friends, New Years’ Eve, Sydney Symphony Under the Stars, Australia Day and Tropfest.
How do I find out more about the events?
You can find links to more information about each event on the Crescent Summer Series website, including contact and event hotline details.
We encourage you to sign up for our free text message alert service, which will keep you informed about any upcoming major events and disruptions to normal Park activity. You can register on the What’s On page on the Parra Park website.
Does Parramatta Park Trust run the events?
We deliver Sydney Symphony Under the Stars in partnership with Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Sydney Festival. The Trust doesn’t run any other events in the Crescent Summer Series but provides the Crescent for third-party event owners to hire and use.
I am a stall holder. Who do I contact about hiring a site?
Except for Sydney Symphony Under the Stars, Parramatta Park doesn’t directly manage the concerts and festivals that make up the Crescent Summer Series. Stall holders should contact the event-holders directly, via the links provided on their listing.
Is it easy to get to Parramatta Park?
Getting to the Park is easy, regardless of where you are coming from. It is a short distance from Parramatta and Westmead railway stations and the Parramatta ferry wharf.
During the Crescent Summer Series there may be changes in traffic conditions and we advise concert-goers to use public transport to get to the Park.
How do I contact someone of the day of an event?
Each event provides their own hotline that can be called on event day. You can find links to this on the individual event listings on the Crescent Summer Series website. The hotline is only available for use on event day. For general enquiries about an event, use the contact details on the event listing.
