About The Festival

A warm welcome to our Festival Fleurieu website.

Every two years, dedicated groups of artists, event organisers and community volunteers from the western side of South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula host Festival Fleurieu (formally Leafy Sea Dragon Festival 2005–2013).

2023 Festival

Our 10th Festival in April 2023 was celebrated with soft autumn weather, over the April South Australian school holidays, and through our Fleurieu Peninsula community Festival, incorporating Aldinga, Myponga, Inman Valley, Mount Compass, Port Elliot, Victor Harbor, Cape Jervis, Second Valley, Normanville and Yankalilla.

2025 planning has start now, under the guidance of our board.

Our 11th Festival will keep the spirit and shape of past Festivals in a dynamic and innovative program to celebrate the arts, culture, community and environment of the district. There will be focus on our youth - the future thinkers and creators.

Enthusiasm and a belief in the power of a community festival to restore and maintain community wellbeing, will drive the core of the 2025 Festival, as residents and organisations become sponsors or supporters with donations, event organisers or volunteers.
