about the festival

A warm welcome to our Festival Fleurieu website. The most recent biennial celebration of artists, the arts, heritage, landscape and community was presented from 11-19 April 2015 at more than 50 venues, in every town, village and hamlet across the Western Fleurieu Peninsula. Locals and visitors alike were in festival mode with over 90 events, most free and a feast for all senses.

We are pleased to announce that the next festival will be presented from 14-30 April 2017.

Start thinking about events that you may like to present, or just block out the dates for your and your visitors to enjoy.

A public meeting is to be held on Tuesday 24th May at the Visitor Information Centre, Yankalilla. Starting at 6.30, there will be light refreshments available and a gift for all attendees.

Have you a dream for what your Community can display, a plan for exhibiting Visual Art, a vision for how our Place can present its special nature, a concept for a Culinary experience, a keenness to be involved in the unfolding development of a grand festival?

Please come to present your ideas and find out more about the next festival.

The District Council of Yankalilla's Community Event of the Year 2016

Festival Fleurieu is presented by a volunteer not-for-profit Incorporated Association and relies on the creative talents of artists, the time of community volunteers, and the generosity of many festival partners who share a passion for all things Fleurieu.

While the leafy sea dragon in our local waters is the festival’s inspiring icon, as an endangered species it won’t be on show except in artistic and documentary versions. We acknowledge the need to keep our local environment pristine to protect it from human activity.
