Daminmin Arts and Culture Festival

A beautiful three-day arts and culture festival.

Join in for bush camping beside the Pudakul Billabong just east of Humpty Doo, in the Adelaide River wetlands, on Limilngan-Wulna country.

This festival is created in partnership with Pudakul and Darwin Community Arts, under the artistic and cultural direction of Lynette and Graham Kenyon. It is a celebration of art and culture in the rural area, highlighting First Nations culture alongside a range of contemporary artistic practices.

The Thursday night is a ticketed event with a per person charge. The festival entry is by donation. Some workshops are free, and some include a fee. There will be food and drinks for sale.

Come for the day or camp the whole weekend!

Thursday evening is the MOIYA Bush Tucker experience.

On Friday enjoy the opening ceremony with the Garramilla Dancers, followed by a host of arts activities and cultural workshops nestled amongst the bush.

On Friday evening enjoy a short film festival with NT Traveling Film Fest.

On Saturday there will be workshops throughout the day followed by a sunset concert sharing great Northern Territory Musicians.

The Daminmin Festival is supported by the Northern Territory Government through NT Major Events, Community Benefits Fund, Inspire NT, Creative Australia, and the Office for the Arts through the Festivals Australia fund.
