Celebrate Canberra Day

Canberra Day Celebrations

Celebrate Canberra's birthday on Monday 13 March. 

Celebrations kick off bright and early at the Canberra Balloon Spectacular. Enjoy a delicious breakfast on the lawns of Old Parliament House, watching hot air balloons take to the sky as the sun rises.  

Join us at Stage 88 Commonwealth Park between 2pm and 7pm to celebrate all things Canberra with a program bursting to the seams with food and free entertainment.

DreamWorks’ Trolls and Shaun the Sheep will take to the stage in the early afternoon. Then, local bands String Elephants and Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers will entertain the crowds. From 4.30pm, DJ Havana Brown will be on stage, bringing high energy rhythm ahead of the legendary Hoodoo Gurus who will headline the performances for the day.
