GROWTH AND CHANGE: Macarthur Square is celebrating its 40th birthday and wants the community to join the party.

Macarthur Square is celebrating its 40th birthday with a jam-packed schedule of food, fashion and fun from Saturday, September 21 to Sunday, September 29.

Centre manager Trevor Hill said the shopping centre's birthday celebrations were their way of thanking their customers and stores for their support over the past four decades of growth and change.

"We're proud to be part of the Campbelltown-Macarthur community," Mr Hill said.

"We have certainly grown with the region, and we're now home to more than 280 major national and specialty stores.

"We are looking forward to sharing more moments and creating new memories with the Campbelltown-Macarthur community in the decades to come."

Celebrations will kick off with a weekend of free sensory events including styling sessions, a grazing table workshop, make-up demonstrations and beauty pampering.
