We have more than 350 events taking place across the Northern Beaches each year. These are delivered by Council, local community groups and event organisers. These events range from small local place-based activations through to major events that attract thousands of visitors.
Council's own program of events is diverse ranging from major community events and festivals to neighbourhood events and place activations and civic functions and commemorations.
Remember to bring your reusable water bottle and coffee cup to Council events and do your part to help end plastic pollution.
Below is a selection of Council's signature events. Go to our What's On calendar to see a full listing of Council and community events.
