School Athletics Carnivals


Campbelltown Sports Stadium is one of a handful of synthetic athletics tracks in Sydney, so why not take advantage and use it for your school athletics carnival and sports day.

An all weather synthetic track means that rain, hail or shine your carnival can go ahead.

Carnival Application Dates

Bookings for carnivals from 2024 and beyond

Bookings open from 1 February each year prior.

For example, to book a Carnival in for May 2024, bookings opened on 1 February 2023. Bookings for May 2025 will open 1 February 2024 etc).

The Venue is required to prioritise Zone, Regional and State Carnivals.

If the date you have booked in is required for a Zone, Regional or State Carnival, unfortunately we will need to move your booking to another suitable date - we will be in contact ASAP where this is the case - noting, the Stadia team will do their best to accommodate every booking.
