Moving to a new location at Greenlees Park, this year’s Concord Carnival will draw crowds to the area and provide a great opportunity for local groups to showcase their talent, says Mayor Angelo Tsirekas.

“Concord Carnival is a fantastic community event and we are excited to be hosting the festival at a new location this year,” he said.

“The theme for this year is ‘Paws n’ Claws, Tails n’ Scales’ so bring your four legged friends and enjoy everything on offer including fitness classes for you and your dog and dog obedience workshops!

“We are also thrilled to be hosting celebrity chef Ed Halmagyi, also known as ‘Fast Ed’, at Concord Kitchen this year.Join Fast Ed as he dishes up culinary delights for Council’s WasteLess in the Bay program, along with some of the best chefs from the area.” Mayor Tsirekas added.

Concord Carnival showcases local performers in the inner west and this year’s event will see some fantastic entertainment on the main stage including dancing, music, belly dancing, martial arts and demonstrations from Assistance Dogs Australia. A second stage, the Lolo Gypsie Caravan will feature world music from Lolo Lovina, New Orleans style music from ‘The Moods’ and blues/roots band ‘The Lost Planet Hotrods’.

In keeping with the ‘Paws n’ Claws, Tails n’ Scales’ theme, there will be a range of entertainment including dog obedience and dog fitness workshops, sheep dog trials and sheep shearing demonstrations. A reptile enclosure will feature a variety of animals including snakes, lizards, turtles and even a baby croc!

With amusement rides and a petting zoo, plus an array of merchandise and food stalls, there is something for everyone at Concord Carnival.
