22 Jun 2018 to 23 Jun 2018
An Outback Festival like no other!
Celebrating all that is Coober Pedy – opals, underground, outback, and our amazing multicutural community.
The Opal Festival is the largest community event in Coober Pedy and is held annually to celebrate the vibrant and culturally diverse community, opal and mining. The Festival provides an opportunity for the community to come together, celebrate and strengthen its cultural and social bonds. Incorporating food and beverage, craft and market stalls, games and entertainment; the festival provides activities for all ages and cultures in an engaging and entertaining event.
Traditionally, the event has been held at Easter, but for the 30 year celebration in 2018, we have moved it the June 22 and 23 to avoid the heat, and celebrate our amazing spring time weather.
The 2018 Festival brings the infamous CRACK UP SISTERS back once again to entertain, embarrass and generaly help us have a great time.
The Fireworks display is earmarked for an opeing event on the Friday night, with a Crack Up style Bush Dance scheduled for Saturday evening at the Drive In.
Come along and get down and dirty!
