Bring the family along for a fun day as we celebrate the vibrant culture and history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities with a major outdoor event and concert.

Music and Dance

The line up on the concert stage is stacked with talent. Catch Jada Weazel, Kootsie Don, and Blanche headlined by hip hop legend JK-47.

Jannawi Dance Clan will be performing traditional dance styles and the MC will be Akala Newman. 

Patron advice: Entertainment may include strong language and adult themes.

Market Stalls and Food

Shop for something special amongst the market stalls offering a selection of art, jewellery and clothing. From exquisite traditional hand-crafted pieces to bold, contemporary designs, there's something unique for everyone.

Food trucks on site will offer delicious hot food including Aboriginal owned and run Wilka Thalta (means Hungry Kangaroo in Paakantyi). They take pride in using native ingredients in their menu from the fish and chips to the braised kangaroo stew.

Other food offerings will include dumplings, gozleme and jaffles, as well as coffee and cold drinks.
