We're celebrating on Friday July 5th because July 4th in the US, it'll be July 5th in Sydney.

The Grand raffle prize is a FREE RETURN TRIP TO LOS ANGELES OR SAN FRANCISCO thanks to our awesome friends at Air New Zealand.

Volunteers have more fun and meet lots of people: let us know if you want to help out on the day.

5:00pm: Doors open as do food & drink specials.  Kids & Families are also welcome til 7pm...things will start becoming a bit more adult after that. We've organized with the bar to offer American meal specials (at least 6 choices) which includes your choice of American beer, wine or soft drink.  Specials go til 8:30pm but there's snacks, cocktails, music, fun & games,  American beers, American whiskies, etc for those who don't want dinner. FYI, we've got an American cook overseeing the entire menu and creating goodies that will taste as close to home as possible.

6:00pm-7:15pm:   Trivia: there will be three rounds of our famous team trivia from 6pm-7:15pm with prizes after each round, prizes for the overall winning team and lots of individual giveaways.

7:30pm - 10:30pm: heaps of giveaways plus our friends at Jim Beam will be bringing out their party crew to run some fun & games.

8:30pm & 10:30pm: Charity Raffles & Free Door Prize Draws: proceeds from charity raffle go to support local community projects of United Way.

9:00pm til late: Our American DJ will be spinning some tunes that will make you homesick... or dance... or both!

Spread the Word!

    Don't forget that everyone at the party is no more than two degrees of friendship away from you (even if this is your first event). This isn't just a bunch of random people in a bar--so freely introduce yourself to those you don't know. Sydney Expat Americans is a network of friends of friends who continuously meet up for parties throughout the year.

    Add us as a friend to hear about other events in Sydney like Thanksgiving, Super Bowl, kickball, Halloween, Cinco de Mayo, and a lot more. We usually have an event every three weeks with around[masked] young professionals.
