The City of Canning holds a number of free, family-friendly events throughout the year, and we want to invite you to help shape Canning to be a vibrant and active place to live.

The City of Canning’s vision is to create a thriving city that is recognised for the opportunities it offers all residents and visitors. The City is keen to celebrate and support arts, recreation, cultural heritage, events, festivals and sporting activities for the greater benefit of the community.

The variety of events and festivals in Canning encourage visitation while celebrating the community’s diversity, talents and increasing cultural understanding. Community events and festivals help bring energy to the streets and public spaces while making an important contribution to the City’s economy.

City of Canning events are now completely smoke free!

We also encourage our events to be low waste, so please bring your reusable water bottle and coffee cup!
We will always supply free water and a place to fill up your bottle. Think about car pooling, public transport, walking or riding your bike. 

There are a number of ways to be involved:
