Canberra Day 2017


Monday 13 March 2017 

Canberra is turning 104 this year! Join in the celebrations with a program bursting to the seams with live music and entertainment for all.

Kids will dance, play and laugh as Shaun The Sheep and Trolls take to the stage. Then the air will fill with music as Canberra’s talented bands, String Elephants and Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers, perform. Havana Brown’s imaginative beats will get your heart pumping and your feet moving before the Hoodoo Gurus headline the concert with all your favourite songs.

The stunning landscape of Commonwealth Park will provide the perfect backdrop for your family day out. Enjoy the thrill of amusement park rides or indulge in a tasty treat from local traders. Snap a cute photo after visiting the face painting station or relax with a picnic to the sound of live music. There’s something for everyone this Canberra Day.

Shuttle buses will be provided from the bus stops on Commonwealth Ave adjacent to Stage 88. The buses will go to the City, Woden, Tuggeranong and Belconnen interchanges from 6:45pm to 9:00pm.
