The 2020/2021 Summer Events season provided support to many City of Wanneroo businesses and vendors, and gave residents a safe environment to socialise and have fun.

This season we modified our events by utilising local parks and places across the City. We celebrated our community by coming together and offering new experiences and opportunity to learn and grow together. A big thankyou to our residents and community members who attended these events. The current COVID-19 restrictions presented many challenges and as always the Wanneroo Community stepped up and did the right thing throughout the season. 

The Event Season

Residents enjoyed 12 events throughout the City suburbs this season from Girrawheen in the south to Yanchep in the City's north. The series included: 

  • Buy Local Market

  • Local Vocals
  • Pictures in the Park
  • Summer Sideshow

Summer Sideshow

The Summer Sideshow series was held in Quinns Rocks, Marangaroo and Wanneroo.

The Twilight Markets, including the Buy Local Market, were held in Wanneroo, Kingsway and Yanchep.
