Darwin Festival

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks Community Event Concert or Performance Exhibition and Shows Festivals and Celebrations Food and Wine

9 Aug 2018 to 26 Aug 2018

Darwin Festival combines the local love of outdoor community festivities and dining with a program of Australian and international performances and exhibitions. Music, theatre, art exhibitions, concerts, ideas and an irrepressible Festival Lounge along with the ubiquitous bamboo food stalls and pop-up bars transform the tropical city.

Festival goers can be seen for 18 nights each August at the long communal tables in the festooned Festival Park eating Darwin’s legendary Asian food and arguing about who has seen the most shows. A festival that started nearly half a century ago with a parade nowadays boasts top international acts from the popular to the avant-garde and from the family friendly to the confronting, but it hasn’t lost its quintessential Darwin feeling of a relaxed, friendly, community celebration.
