Ryde Eisteddfod will be celebrating its thirtieth year of operation in 2018. 

Special opening event - 11th May, 2018

Each year there are some exciting new events on offer as well as some modifications to previous events.   Unfortunately the APRA fee has increased this year, and will continue to increase in the next few years.    This is applied to all instrumental, vocal and dance items (including Seniors sections) but does not apply to Speech and Drama.

Volunteers always welcome. See the Volunteers Pages

The Eisteddfod was established in 1989  by Ryde City Council and handed over to a volunteer team in 1990, with great support from Ryde City Council, both in the provision of venues and in direct sponsorship.  Because of generous donations by businesses, clubs and individuals from Ryde and the wider Sydney region the Eisteddfod awards valuable prizes and scholarships in its five discipline areas

The Eisteddfod  includes a Seniors section (50 plus)  for  older members of the community, emphasis on entertainment as well as excellence.

The Eisteddfod is a non-profit, volunteer-run organisation which consists of a Committee and a large band of helpers.  This is an exciting community initiative - please follow the links to the Volunteers pages if you would like to know more about being involved.
