Festivals and Celebrations

9 Oct 2021 Annual Event

Giiyong Festival will take place at Jigamy, just north of Eden. It is a multi-art form festival celebrating traditional and contemporary Aboriginal culture through dance, art, music, film, food, spoken word performances and discussion.

Giiyong Festival is the only event of its type held within the Yuin Nation, which stretches from the Shoalhaven River down into East Gippsland in Victoria and across to the Great Dividing Range.

Giiyong (pronounced Guy-Yong) means ‘come to welcome’ in the South Coast language as spoken by the Elders.

Giiyong Festival 2021 is bringing together some of the region and the nation’s finest Aboriginal musicians, performers, writers and presenters to share their culture and their stories with the entire community. Headliners include Shellie Morris, Briggs, Buddy Knox Blues Band, Stiff Gins, Sean Choolburra and Nooky.
