Saint Barbara’s Festival 2018

Festivals and Celebrations

29 Nov 2018 to 2 Dec 2018

The annual Saint Barbara’s Festival has become an integral part of the Goldfields events calendar. The festival celebrates mining in the region and the local community.

The Miners Memorial Service is held in the square to honour the men and women who have lost their lives servicing the mining industry over the past century.

Undoubtedly the showcase of the Saint Barbara’s Festival, the Parade is a fun-filled extravaganza for the whole family! Thousands of people gather for the Parade to watch enormous pieces of mining equipment rumble down historical Hannan Street including an enormous Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines (KCGM) Cat 793 Haul Truck standing six metres tall, eight metres wide and thirteen metres long!

Along with mining equipment, you can expect to see community organisations, schools, animals, prospectors and mines rescue demonstrations.

Please see their website for their festival programme.
