2020 Boroondara Eisteddfod

The 2020 Boroondara Eisteddfod took place online from 16 April to 19 June.

This year’s competition allowed entrants to participate in the Eisteddfod virtually, with the wider community able to view a selection of performances via the web.

Our revised approach to the 2020 program was made in the hope that delivering this event digitally will provide a meaningful focus for many, particularly our school-aged entrants, during an otherwise uncertain time.
