Community events season review

Community engagement has now closed. Comments were submitted from 02/09/2019 to 04/11/2019.


Review findings announced

Thank you to everyone who participated in the City of Wanneroo’s Events Season Calendar Review late in 2019.

The aim was to invite the community to provide feedback on the City’s annual events program and help create a calendar of events for 2020/21.

What you said

  • The majority of respondents would support a change to the City’ events season
  • The majority of respondents are more likely to attend more frequent smaller local events, than less frequent larger events
  • The majority of respondents (across all ages and suburbs), equally support music concerts, markets, festivals, and movies in the park
  • The 35-44 age bracket also supported kid’s activities
  • Even the youngest participants (15-17 and 18-24 age brackets) equally favoured music concerts, markets and festivals.

It was intended to release the community feedback and seek further input on a draft Events Calendar for 2020/21 prior to its release.  However, due to the changing guidelines and restrictions associated with the COVID-19 situation, the City has not yet been able to finalise and publish the new Events Calendar.

Further updates will be provided once things become clearer. 

About the annual events program

The City of Wanneroo’s Events Season runs from October through to March annually and brings the community together through social, cultural and recreational events.

Each season delivers a fresh line-up of performances from local acts through to international bands.

The 2019/20 season consisted of:

  • Dog’s Breakfast – Sunday, 6 October 2019 (Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex),
  • Live in the Amphitheatre – December 2019 to February 2020 (Wanneroo Civic Centre), 
  • Retro Rewind – Saturday, 22 February 2019 (Yanchep National Park)
  • Global Beats and Eats - Saturday, 21 March 2020 (Paloma Park, Marangaroo).

We are currently carrying out a review of the program and want your feedback to shape its future.
