Dark Mofo 2023


8 Jun 2023 to 22 Jun 2023 Annual Event

Dark Mofo 2023 marks the tenth year of Mona’s midwinter festival in Tasmania, which delves into centuries-old winter solstice rituals.

Since its inception in 2013, Dark Mofo has delved into centuries-old rituals to explore the links between ancient and contemporary mythology, humans and nature, religious and secular traditions, darkness and light, and birth, death and renewal. Based around the southern hemisphere’s winter solstice, every year we celebrate the dark through large-scale public art, music, fire, food, light and noise.

Signature events include the delectable Winter Feast on Hobart’s waterfront and the colourful community celebration of the Ogoh-Ogoh parade and burning.

Make it an annual pilgrimage, for the Nude Solstice Swim, with more than 1000 people dropping their clothes and inhibitions to welcome back the light after the longest, coldest night in the nation.
