Party! Party! Party! Party was a short-lived joke political party in ACT (Australia). It ran in only one election, the 1989 Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly election. It received 979 votes (0.69% of the vote). It was created as a joke since the creators did not believe in self-government when it became legal in ACT.

As a result of the lax party registration laws that allowed this party and other similar parties (for example the Sun Ripened Warm Tomato Party, the No Self-Government Party and the Surprise Party) to stand candidates, the electoral legislation in the Australian Capital Territory was changed to provide that parties must have 100 members and a constitution before they could register. This stopped people from registering joke parties just for the fun of it.
