Australian Catholic Youth Festival | Sydney | 2017

The Australian Catholic Youth Festival (ACYF) is a national gathering of Catholic young people established by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC). It exists to provide young people with opportunities to deepen their relationship with Jesus, be empowered to be disciples in the world today and encounter and celebrate the vitality of the Church in Australia.

The Archdiocese of Sydney is hosting the event from December 7th-9th 2017 on behalf of the ACBC. The Festival receives collaborative support from the agencies of the Archdiocese, and greater Sydney Dioceses of Broken Bay, Parramatta and Wollongong.

In December 2017 the Festival will launch the Year of Youth, celebrating ten years on from hosting World Youth Day 2008.


The 2017 Festival will be held at Sydney Olympic Park with venues including Sydney Showgrounds and Qudos Bank Arena.

Additional sites will be announced in early 2017 once confirmed.

Who is the Festival for?

Young people from Year 9 (in 2017) to young adults, up to 25 years of age are invited to the event.
