Australian Festival


The 10th annual Australian Festival will be held in Centennial Park September 15-17.

This is a huge, fun and family friendly event taking place right next door to Sylvan Park. More than 50,000 people have attended the festival since it began in 1997 to discover and celebrate Australian arts and culture. The festival features a kids area with animals, games and rides and areas concentrating on music, sports, food and several other interests.

All day passes are currently available online for adults for $5 and for children for $3. (Note: A separate music festival on Sunday featuring Colin Hay from Men at Work requires its own ticket.) Passes are discounted up to 35 percent in advance of the festival.

Did you know that Tennessee will export more than $400 million in trade to Australia this year alone? I didn't, and I also didn't know that a total of 14 Australian-owned companies employ more than 2,500 people across the state. Wow.
