Festivals and events are more than an activity – they unite communities, introduce us to emerging artists and art forms, they expand and challenge our thinking, and importantly, celebrate the people and uniqueness that is the Territory.

There are great events in the Territory, from the Beanie Festival in Alice Springs, Barunga Festival, Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair and Camel Cup, to name but a few.

FestivalsNT has established a funding program to create new and develop existing events to better engage the local community, attract visitors and showcase the Northern Territory.

We encourage the development of events and festivals, as well as everyone’s participation.
