Sydney Named World’s Best Festival and Event City

Sydney has been named the world's best festival and event city. It's the second year in a row that the Australian city has won the International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA) World Festival and Event City Award.

Sydney was judged the best in the over one million population category. The award will be presented at IFEA's 56th Annual Convention and Expo in Fort Worth, Texas, USA.

President and CEO of IFEA, Steven Wood Schmader, said the international panel of judges had many great world cities to assess in the category, but decided Sydney stood out from the pack. “Sydney won due to the community leadership and ongoing, concerted efforts and support to provide a positive local environment that is conducive to and encourages the success and growth of festivals and events,” Schmader said.
