Penrith Council has officially pulled the pin on this year’s Real Festival, which was scheduled to take place in September.

Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown thanked the many talented operators, performers, artists and staff who have been working so hard to bring an incredible program to life for our community.

“Real Festival is an event that brings our community together to celebrate and share amazing arts and cultural experiences in Penrith, and to have fun and enjoy the magical atmosphere the event creates in the spectacular riverside location,” Cr McKeown said.

“In a time where these celebrations and connections are more important than ever, we are disappointed to have to cancel the festival once again, however we know it is the right call to make.

“Our festival artists, contractors and crew are also devastated they are unable to share their work with our audiences again this year but are looking forward to when we can all be together again safely.”

Council has confirmed Real Festival will take place from September 9 to 11, 2022.
