Tyler Hutchison, Partnerships Executive, Optus Stadium

The biggest fundraising event in the world is set to take place at the Most Beautiful Stadium in the World on Sunday 25 October.

It was with great excitement that VenuesLive and Telethon announced that Optus Stadium would be the new home of the Telethon Family Festival with the highlight being a special WA family event to be held at Optus Stadium on Sunday 25 October.

There’ll be something for everyone with live performances on the Bankwest Community Stage, carnival rides, food trucks, the HBF active zone, roving entertainment and special guest appearances between 11am and 5pm.

With the AFL season over by then and the cricket season in limbo, Telethon has come along at the perfect time for Optus Stadium and given us a diverse, exciting and worthy project for the team to get stuck into.

Telethon is a West Australian institution, a fantastic cause and an event we have all been proud of for in excess of 50 years.

VenuesLive will continue to build the strategic relationship with Seven West and Telethon to strengthen what is already a great relationship.

The Family Festival will provide opportunities for Perth businesses (service providers and retailers) to re-launch and sell product following a tough 2020 events season.

We are super excited to develop Telethon into an annual Stadium community event and for Optus Stadium to become the Home of Telethon!
