Due to COVID-19 health restrictions on public gatherings, the Festival of Fisher’s Ghost Street Parade, Fun Run, Street Fair and Carnival will not go ahead.
People will still be able to enjoy some favourites from the festival as the The Fisher’s Ghost Art Award and other smaller events will still be held.
Fisher’s Kids, the Fisher’s Ghost Investigative Ghost Tours, Heritage Walking Tours and the Dharawal National Park Guided Indigenous Walking Tours will go ahead.
“The decision to cancel this year’s major Festival of Fisher’s Ghost events was not taken lightly but the health and safety of our community is at the forefront of all our event planning,” Mayor George Brticevic said.
“While the main events may not be happening, there are still many activities for people to enjoy including wonderful Fisher’s Ghost Art Award exhibition at the Campbelltown Arts Centre,” he said.
More than 800 artists have entered works into the prestigious Fisher’s Ghost Art Award, including a large number of local entries. The exhibition opens on Saturday 31 October at the Campbelltown Arts Centre and in an online format.
This year’s Award announcement will be held online on Friday, 30 October.
