Every two years a dedicated group of artists and community volunteers from the western side of South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula host Festival Fleurieu.
Festival Fleurieu 2019 is being hosted in April 2019.
The communities of the Fleurieu Coast (Yankalilla district) will once again celebrate our burgeoning community of creative artists. Our resident community of 5,000 souls swells threefold as the festival brings the holiday season to life with imagination and creativity.
Festival Fleurieu is a multi-award winning celebration of identity. It is about valuing the arts and promoting their special place at the heart of community life. Thanks to the imaginations and talents of local artists we see our place afresh through the eyes of others – our identity as a local community. We invite young and old to join us for inspiration – and for fun!
Every festival program presents both curated and artist-initiated events – music, dance, word, painting and sculpture, quilters, foodies, photographers and thinkers.
Our volunteer board and many community volunteers can’t do it alone. We need your help to make our 2019 Festival Fleurieu an even bigger and better success by donating through the Australian Cultural Fund.
Artists invest countless hours and materials in making and presenting their art. Your donations help the festival to keep the costs of participation for artists to a minimum.
So much of our festival is free to access, so your donations help to run youth arts programs, to commission public art and to ensure equitable access for the community and visitors through free events.
We are a not-for-profit association and we are building sustainability. Every dollar donated helps ensure our future is bigger and better!
