Mandurah Arts Festival
Immerse yourself in all things arts and culture over two massive weekends!
The Mandurah Arts Festival celebrates what is unique to Mandurah – our people, places and stories.
Experience and enjoy the performance, dance, music, visual arts, theatre and outdoor activities from renowned and upcoming local, national and international artists. From global art initiatives to community-led projects, the festival is inclusive, thought-provoking and sometimes challenging.
We aspire to deliver a festival that connects people through shared experiences of place and stories and encourages people to express pride in who they are and where they are from.
This is our Mandjoogoordap – our meeting place of the heart – and through Mandurah Arts Festival, we share our stories with the world.
Festival Launch Friday 29th October 2021
