Mandurah Arts Festival
For the first three weekends of November, Mandurah Arts Festival will transport you to new lands and states of mind, bringing people together to share and delight in Mandurah’s arts scene.
This year, some of the city’s most popular spots will host a range of events, including the launch of a photographic exhibition, Faces of Mandurah, on Mandurah Bridge accompanied by a screening of Finding Vivian Maier. Musical Fruit will wrap up the festival, transforming Keith Holmes Reserve into a launch pad for local musicians.
An experimental program of 15+ free small and larger scale projects will activate locations across the city, starting out small and giving the festival the opportunity to grow organically with community at its heart.
