‘The Gathering’ - forging a road-map to a vibrant night-time entertainment precinct in Blacktown.

Our vision for Blacktown CBD is to establish it as a culturally rich and diverse destination in Sydney. We want to hero the wealth of experiences Blacktown has to offer, from hip-hop festivals to the city’s best Afghan and Filipino eats, stunning arts exhibitions and even ghost tours.

Blacktown boasts over 182 languages spoken, with residents from 188 countries, and is home to the largest urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population in the country.

With a plethora of events, artists and collectives, ‘The Gathering’ will bring together communities and creatives to strengthen what exists and work collaboratively towards expanding a thriving and exciting Blacktown city for all.
