Eel Festival 2018

The family-friendly Eel Festival celebrates Parramatta’s namesake, the eel, and its significance to the local Darug people, known as the Burramattagal, who would gather during eel season to feast, trade goods and share stories and food.

The festival program includes the opportunity to get up close with eels, and attend talks, tours and tastings. Enjoy musical performances and workshops on food, language, and culture, and discover traditional bush foods. Step inside the colonial homestead and learn more about the connections between John and Elizabeth Macarthur and the local Aboriginal people.

This event is presented in partnership with Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural & Education Centre.
