About the property
Presented by Wollongong City Council, Viva la Gong is Wollongong's annual one-day sustainable community arts festival that celebrates the city's creative spirit and cultural diversity.
Get ready to be thrilled by the diversity of talent that makes up the 2013 program. The day starts with the street parade that bursts into the park to signal the beginning of the Viva la Gong extravaganza. Throughout the day, get ready for talented circus artists, roving performers and our local musicians. You'll be blown away by the impressive national and international acts gracing our stages. Plus. you can explore the handmade markets and try international foods and fresh produce.
Wollongong is a diverse city with over 80 different cultural groups that call Wollongong home making it one of Australia's most culturally diverse cities. From this diversity has emerged Wollongong's vibrant, resilient, regenerative, and creative spirit - and we think that's worth celebrating.
Viva la Gong is a free family-friendly event that will take place on Saturday 9th November 2013 at MacCabe Park, in the heart of Wollongongs CBD.
Last year Viva la Gong attracted around 10,000 people to the festival site at MacCabe Park.
