Desert Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

24 Sep 2020 to 4 Oct 2020 Annual Event

Desert Festival is set to celebrate the best of local arts and desert culture in Alice Springs/Mparntwe.

Over ten balmy days and nights, the vibrant desert community will gather for the twentieth year of Desert Festival and relish in all things music, theatre, film and art, created right here.

The festival will open in conjunction with the Alice Springs Town Council Night Markets and conclude with celebrations for the twentieth anniversary.

Desert Festival, presented by Red Hot Arts Central Australia, will proudly deliver an all-Territory program in 2020 featuring a diverse range of local talent providing daily pop-up performances and a night-time program that will have a broad activation of venues and theatres across town.

Desert Festival has been made possible with the generous support of the Northern Territory Government and Alice Springs Town Council.
