Lake Mac Festival cancelled

Published on 14 January 2021


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 risk in New South Wales, and in close consultation with NSW Police, unfortunately our Lake Mac Festival for 2021 has been cancelled.

Lake Macquarie Mayor Cr Kay Fraser said “Our community really enjoys coming together at our local events, so it is unfortunate that we can’t proceed with this year’s Lake Mac Festival. However, we must keep people safe first and foremost and while this is a difficult decision, I believe this is the right one for our community,” Cr Fraser said.  

A COVIDsafe Citizenship Ceremony at Rathmines Theatre will proceed as planned on 26 January 2021.The Citizenship Ceremony will welcome more than 40 new citizens from across the globe.

“Presiding over citizenship ceremonies is one of my great honours as Mayor of Lake Macquarie,” Cr Fraser said.

“Welcoming people from all cultural backgrounds and walks of life adds diversity and richness to our community, and seeing their joy and pride as they become Australian citizens is a true privilege.”
