Nicho Halloween Festival History

The Nicholson Street Public School Halloween Festival takes place every year on the last weekend of October in the grounds of historic Nicholson Street Public School in Balmain East. 

The Halloween Festival is the only known Halloween themed fundraiser in the Inner West and is particularly aimed at 5 - 12 year olds and with over 20 years experience it gets better each year. It is a unique and fun day for children and parents alike and captures the true spirit of this small community school.

Many local businesses have pledged their support over the years and without their support it would be difficult to deliver such an amazing event.  

Although local business forms an integral part of the Festival, organisers are keen to point out that the festivities are not commercial. There's a lot of home-made ingenuity, we have very creative and resourceful parents who are committed to making this event a wonderful showcase for the school and its school motto 'Learning, Laughter, Life.'  

A range of side-shows have been carefully planned to keep a family well entertained and from the moment you purchase your Halloween Tickets at the front gate the children (and their parents) will be entertained for quite some time. It's entertaining just walking around looking at all the hideously gruesome costumes the parents, students and local community members are dressed in.

The best way to get to the festival is on public transport as parking in Balmain East can be limited. Nicholson Street Public School is a 5 minute walk from Balmain East Ferry Terminal or take the 442 Bus from the city or 444 and 445 from Leichhardt and Rozelle.

For any further information on the event or if you would like to support the school in some way please contact Devina Solanki at:
