City of Ryde Eisteddfod


The Eisteddfod was established in 1988  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.
