Celebrate Wollongong’s unique art and culture at our annual Viva la Gong festival!
Viva la Gong brings the city centre’s MacCabe Park to life on the second Saturday in November.
With great live music, performances, art, crafts, food stalls and play zones, Viva is loads of fun for everyone. There will be opportunities to take part in creative workshops on the day and a live music ‘flash mob'.
So keep an eye out for your chance to take part.
As part of our work to make Viva la Gong an accessible event, we've made a social story to help people take part. It's in Word format so you can update it to suit your own needs. Download a copy below.
You can also find social stories for other Council services and activities on our Disability Access Guide page.
