Sports & Recreation Expo

The expo was part of Northside’s CHANGE program that strives to promote physical activity and engagement with local sporting clubs but is now part of the Celebrate Gungahlin Festival.

Sports & Recreation Expo

This program is now a part of Celebrate Gungahlin Festival that was earlier started by Northside Community Service under the CHANGE program funded by ACT Health Directorate.

During this day the Expo gathers over twenty sports and recreation clubs including your classic Basketball, AFL, NRL and Hockey to Taekwondo, Dancing, Aeroplane modeling, Aerial Sports and Ultimate Frisbee. On the day there are performances from the likes of “Jazzy Jumpers” a talented group of skippers, “Passion and Purpose” Canberra’s only multicultural dance group, and a freelance hacky sack performance.

Children are provided with the opportunity to try a new sport, and local sporting clubs and organisations get to showcase their sport or activity. Children get the opportunity to try out a wide range of activities and even register with various clubs or groups on the day.

These expos were held bi-annually once for winter & and once for summer sports & recreation activities earlier but now happens only once during the Celebrate Gungahlin Festival.
