Celebrate the legendary ghost of Fred Fisher with an exciting program including roller skating, carnival rides and live music

One of Australia’s most delightfully spooky festivals is back, and this year it’s bigger and better than ever. In case you need a quick refresher, Fred Fisher was a convict who went missing in Campbelltown in 1826, only to appear as a ghostly apparition to guide police to his remains and murderer. The first iteration of the Festival of Fisher's Ghost took place in 1956, when 1,500 people gathered in the town in the dead of the night, hoping to catch a glimpse of Fisher’s famous ghost.

Today, the event is a major fixture on the Campbelltown calendar and is steeped in community history and tradition. This year’s festivities will kick off on November 2, with a reimagined ten-day program featuring everything from sunset concerts and twilight markets to an augmented reality art after-dark trail and a retro roller rink. 

To ensure you don’t miss a minute of the action, there are a few key dates to note. On Saturday, November 4, the Twilight Fair is happening at Mawson Park and will include community market stalls, roving entertainment, kids activities and food trucks. Arrive early on the Saturday to enjoy a free, pop-up retro roller skating rink and explore the family-friendly Yomise (celebration of Japanese culture with workshops, performances and stalls) in the Japanese Garden at Campbelltown Arts Centre. Your four-legged friends can join the fun on Sunday, November 5 with a dogs' day out featuring pet-related market stalls and cuteness competitions.

Sunset Sounds returns the following Saturday (November 11) with a fresh line-up of Aussie acts including hard rock band, Baby Animals and country rock band, the Wolfe Brothers. Bring your picnic blanket and relax on the lawn with a  beverage or craft beer from the pop-up bar. 

Throughout the festival, you can also work up a sweat by doing the 5km or 10km fun run on November 12, and explore the annual Fisher’s Ghost Art Award exhibition at Campbelltown Art Gallery. Plus, the Fisher’s Ghost carnival returns with thrilling rides, showbags and food stalls at the Leumeah Commuter Car Park for the entirety of the festival, including firework shows at 9pm on both Saturdays.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Fisher at all times – who knows, you may just be lucky enough to spot him.

South West Voice

Fingers crossed this is the last digital Fisher’s Ghost festival

For the second year in a row, the biggest festival in the outer South Western Sydney region will be mainly a digital event.

Campbelltown Council is promising a bigger and better Festival of Fisher’s Ghost in 2022, but in the meantime the 2021 event will be a mix of online and small events  from Friday, November 5 to Sunday, November.

Under normal circumstances, the popular festival, which has been running for more that 60 years, is a two week event that brings the buzz to town.

By November 5, NSW will be getting close to 85 percent fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and most of our freedoms will return. But it looks like there wasn’t enough time for Campbelltown Council to organise live events such as the parade, carnival and music concerts.

Council has announced that two big events, Fisher’s Kids and the Fisher’s Ghost art award at Campbelltown Arts Centre will be open for residents to attend.

It says residents will also be able to participate in a number of online festival events.

“While it’s a shame that we can’t all get out and celebrate the Festival of Fisher’s Ghost together, we still have a great line up of events planned for people of all ages and interests,” says the mayor of Campbelltown, George Brticevic.

“Planning is already under way to ensure we can bring back a fresh Festival of Fisher’s Ghost next year with some great new ideas that complement the festival’s heritage,” he said.

This year though history buffs can follow the footsteps of Fred Fisher with a free self-guided audio tour using the app Cya on the Road, available from the App Store or Google Play Store.

On Friday, November 5, residents can join in on the fun of online DanceFit classes by Shane’s Crew, including an inclusive session for people living with disability.

Leading into International Games Week, participants can embark on an online Dungeons and Dragons adventure or pick up some pop culture memorabilia at an online Collector Con event on Sunday, November 7.

Other festival online events include:

  • Virtual escape room – Friday 5 November
  • Online trivia night – Saturday 6 November
  • Virtual Pinot and Picasso classes– Sunday 7 November

Gee, that is good to hear. I was involved with the Festival from when it began and helped to build the first Council Float. That we also took to the Sydney Waratah Festival too.
