Narooma Winter Night Markets Festival Launches Program

A line-up of outstanding performers and activities has been announced for the inaugural Narooma Winter Night Markets Festival to be held on Saturday, 2 July.

Festival Director, Sally Bouckley, says the program has something for everyone.

‘This new event for Narooma and the South Coast will showcase Yuin First Nations Culture through a festival of Koori dance, music, stories, food, art and crafts. A Welcome to Country Ceremony will open the event followed by a traditional Smoking Ceremony to thank the Ancestors, along with a performance by the acclaimed Djaadjawan and Mudadha Gamara Dancers. Later in the evening in the Elders Tent, Yuin knowledge holders will be sharing stories that have been told around campfires for thousands of years,’ she said.

‘We expect our community will dance the night away to live music from Matty Walker, Richard Luland, Gabbadu and rock band The fReds with DJ Another Luke spinning the decks.

‘As well as music and cultural activities, we’ll have communal fire pits to keep everyone warm, plenty of street food and seasonal goodies to try including local craft beers and gins, and stallholders selling local art, crafts, jewelry and more. Dog lovers may want to enter their pooches in what we think will be a highly contested Dog Fashion Show.’

Tickets for the event cost $25 for general entry, or $95 for VIP entry which includes a welcome drink, roving canapes, seating and a DJ in the VIP Tipi Bar. Children under 16 will enjoy the event for free. Tickets are available now online at
