16th March 2020. The Executive Committee of The City of Parramatta Eisteddfod Society Inc advises that The City of Parramatta Eisteddfod for 2020 has been cancelled.

The decision to cancel was taken during an online Special General Meeting of the Executive Committee and Members of The City of Parramatta Eisteddfod Society Inc. in light of the ongoing announcements from the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) and Government of Australia regarding the present COVID-19 Pandemic.

The decision to cancel is in line with the advice from the CMO and government to take all steps possible to limit the risk of spread of the COVID-19 virus. Maintaining the good health of all associated with the Eisteddfod is our priority.

Thank you for understanding that this was not a decision taken lightly, but one of social responsibility and care.

Full refunds of all entry fees paid to date will be made as soon as practical. Refunds are expected to be commenced during the week commencing 23 March, 2020.
